THE NEED FOR A SOLUTION
The challenges faced by startups in the economic climate of the modern world is fierce. It is so tough that most ventures collapse even before they start. Most of these companies have impressive ideas on how to provide the much-needed solutions to modern day world problems but they are being done a great disservice by different so-called Financial Experts when they are charged exorbitant fees in order to help the startups have a solid foundation in the industry as you hardly find any financial and organizational mentoring service that provides free mentorship. This is where “The White Spaces Show” differ from others.
ABOUT THE SHOW
The White Spaces Show is a pioneer in a new category on the Revain platform as it falls under the newly introduced category of Financial Media. The show is a discussion and interview-based program that invites various professionals and inventors from different works of life to share and exchange their experiences and ideas on how they came about their innovations and how the inventions are set up to provide solutions to common world problems as well as problems that are peculiar to different regions and countries on the globe. It is set up to provide an enabling environment for startups to become relevant in different industries of their choosing. The show is divided into different video episodes which is freely availabe on the website and the YouTube channel. As at the time of this review, the show has hosted 13 guests with the first episode launched on 21st August, 2020 with an interview with Ruslan Mahov, a financial professional who has been actively involved with cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology for 2 years. Other notable guests on the show includes; Eberhard Scheuer, Anca Albu, Thibaut Rouquette, Valentine Coco, Brigitta Gyoerfi, Fungai Mettler, among others.
At the beginning of every episode before the interview starts, Pavel gives a brief on the current trends in the IT, Business, and Finance industry and how it relates with the topic of discussion of the interview. So far, the show have covered trending matters such as Cryptocurrency and Blockchains, impact of social media on Digital health and COVID-19 pandemic, Decentralised Finance, Building effective Startups, InsureTechs, and so on. It is also noteworthy that the show is highly selective with its guests, as the guests on the show are innovators and experts in their various fields. The show was included as part of the Swiss Digital Days event on 3rd November, 2020 at the Trust Square in Switzerland with a marathon of interviews that lasted 11 hours with 9 invited guests.
THE GENIUS BEHIND IT ALL
This review will not be complete without talking about the genius behind the show; "Pavel Jakovlev". Pavel is an Evangelist at SICTIC (Swiss ICT Investor Club) among other endeavors. He works with different organizations in order to help them progress strategically in relationships with investors, and how to generate demand.
He has over the years gathered a lot of knowledge from enrolling for different courses in different institutes of education with excellent results. His vast and robust knowledge is evident in all his interviews as he discusses trending issues with his guests.
Pavel is excellent at having conversations and has spent close to 10 years working with different companies in order to improve their digital presence. He is also passionate about new technological solutions and how they can survive in an efficient, productive, and sustainable manner. Pavel is well learned, educated and actively involved in different fields, and this is what enriches his conversations with guests on the show. He is fluent in 6 languages and very passionate about issues that affect human activities. He is driven by success and is motivated to surpass expectations as revealed by his colleagues and employers.
Although it is still in its early days, going through the episodes, I find the show very educative, innovative and informative as it covers every aspect of human endeavor, such as Cryptocurrencies and Blockchain technology, Psychology and Digital Health, Human Centered Design, etc. This is what makes it possible to discuss with innovators from all works of life on how they are proffering solutions through Information Technology to modern day human problems. The diversity in the knowledge of the show host (Pavel) makes the show highly educative and informative. Both the host and the guest are educating the audience. I highly recommend this show for startup and established companies that are set up to inculcate Information Technology in providing solutions.
The integration of the show with Revain Review platform is a way forward and a step in the right direction to ensure that the show is able to reach a larger audience through the reviews. This integration will also enable the show to get better as it progresses.
I noticed that majority of the invited guests on the show are resident in Switzerland. There is need to sought out inventors from other economic and technological climates (countries) in order to know the challenges and developments that go on in other parts of the world. I am looking forward to when more inventors from the IT and business fields are invited to the show, such as;
1. Bill Gates (Microsoft),
2. Elon Musk (Tesla),
3. Jeff Bezoz (Amazon),
4. Jack Ma (AliBaba),
5. Mark Zuckerberg (Facebook),
6. Jack Dorsey (Twitter), among others.
This show will serve as an incentive to startups to know how they can thrive in their different engagements as they can easily learn from how the experts succeeded in their various fields.
I am also looking forward to the show being hosted in different parts of the world as the show is being only hosted in Switzerland. I am sure this will happen after we survive the COVID-19 pandemic. I really hope the show continues to expand its horizons and make the world a better place.
I am reserving the remaining star for when the show gains global recognition it is aiming for, because I believe the show will surpass all expectations.
