Announcing: Safal Niveshak Meetups

In his magnificent book, Think and Grow Rich, Napoleon Hill wrote –

No two minds ever come together without, thereby, creating a third, invisible, intangible force which may be likened to a third mind…When a group of individual brains are coordinated and function in harmony, the increased energy created through that alliance becomes available to every individual brain in the group.

In giving meaning to Mr. Hill’s idea, let me announce a new initiative from Safal Niveshak – Meetups @ Safal Niveshak – to bring the tribe members together, face-to-face, to channel the energy for a shared vision – simplifying the art of value investing and making it available to as many small investors as possible, around the country.

This idea is really simple – To meet regularly in small groups across cities in India…to learn and grow together in our investment journey.

While we see the meetups evolving over time, here are what we believe to be the four founding pillars of this initiative –

  1. Learning – Tribe members connect face-to-face to learn from each other’s experience in investing.
  2. Inspiring – Experienced investors in the meetup inspire new investors (the latter surely need a lot of inspiration, and the right one).
  3. Sharing – Members share their investing journeys, experiences, key learning, and big mistakes.
  4. Networking – Members in a city get connected with each other, and maybe extend the tribesmanship by becoming friends.

The goal is NOT to bring together people so that they can share/ask for stock tips or engage in any ‘intelligent’ debates. The goal IS to connect and get together to share thoughts, experiences, learning, and mistakes with others…and also learn through peer support.

There will be no teachers or gurus here. No set agendas or proposed beliefs either. The idea is to just come together face-to-face, talk, share, and learn from each other about how to invest our money sensibly.

How Does It All Start?
Here is a simple plan to start this initiative.

If you are interested to organize a meetup of investors in your city, or just join one, simply click here to fill a small form.

After collecting data of interested people, Anshul and I will finalize our travel plan to initiate the first meetups across various cities in India. Then, once we connect people in their respective cities, we will let the meetups happen and evolve on their own.

That’s the entire plan as of now.

If you think this is too rudimentary a plan, let me say that even we (Anshul and I) think the same.

But please note that we just want to sow its seeds here without any grand expectations. If it doesn’t sprout after we give it some time to work, we’ll kill it. But it’s an idea that deserves a chance and we find it too important to ignore. Who knows how big this can grow unless we give it a try.

Together We’re Better
Safal Niveshak’s journey that started four years back now craves for a wider path as more tribe members join in. And I will be happy to connect you with others living close to you on this path of helping you become simple and sensible with your hard-earned money.

Remember, together we’re better.

So if you are interested to organize a meetup of investors in your city, or just join one, simply click here to fill a small form.

We look forward to meeting you soon…and starting this new journey of learning, inspiring, and sharing to become better at how we invest.

In case you have any thoughts / suggestions on this initiative, please share in the Comments section of this post.

  1. Great initiative

  2. Excellent initiative. However, if you circulate an agenda to discuss beforehand, it could be more productive. Participants could come better prepared on what to discuss and what to expect from the meet.

  3. Vikas singh says:

  4. This is a brilliant idea but just wanna gurus to join …

  7. Jessel V. Rodricks says:

    Great and wonderful initiative. Keep up the good work.

  8. What would it entail if I choose to organise the meetup in my city (Pune)?

    As in contribution of time, money & energy?

  9. Hello Vishal,

    Absolutely brilliant !

    But I must say that you are ignoring people like us who are outside India from participating such initiatives 🙁

    May I propose to conduct also virtual meet ups on Google Hangout or Skype ? This would enable us also to join learn and share along with other .


  10. Great initiative.
    I am reading your articles silently from around 2 years and want to meet you . Definitely see you there.

    Blend of knowledge and experience when shared face to face will prove beneficial to one and all.

  15. Great initiative!
    I would be there in pune to meet all learned gurus.

  16. Dear vishal
    Great initiative. Would love to join meeting at pune

  17. idea is good but first meeting initiative should be taken by u it will be better,also exhange of stock ideas must take place or people will soon loose interest and very few will participate.

  18. Do you have a facebook group?

  19. Great Initiative – It will help people like me get started, who know the importance of Value Investing, but dunno how to or where to get started.

    Already asked above – Is there a SafalNiveshak Facebook Page or Group? If not can we have a group?
    You can also look at to create online meetup communities and set up agenda.
    Or have a Whatsapp Group

    How do I communicate more with you? to know more way and data sources for information to learn about value investment. I am aware we have google…but what to pick and what to ignore?

    Guruji marg dikhao…

  20. Dear Vishal,

    Great initiative. What if we have not enough members in the city we live and if we would like to join members in other cities? Are you going to announce meet up schedule so other than that city people can join?

    This can be organised like what BNI does world over. They meet every week on a fixed day for 4-5 hrs. Every member contributes. Meetings are usually breakfast meetings. They start at 7 and continue till 9 am. Then they have buffet breakfast so that everyone can mingle and exchange views

  22. Very good idea Sirji. Gr8 job congrats to both of you.also pl see what can be done to increase participation of general public in equity markets.there shud be some awareness drive to clear public fear & doubts regarding share market,so that our share market can increase 50 times.

  26. Sir, it seems your focus is mainly on Indian residents. What about the non-Indian residents?
