Arch Academy of Design presents Chr-Cha on HaikuJAM

Arch Academy of Design first hosted Chr-cha on the 6th of September, 2013. It started as an Arch initiative to create a platform for designers and creative minds from all walks of life to have a meeting point where they could exchange ideas, collaborate and create new platforms, share their views over a 2-hour session every month or so . 5 Years down the line it has become one of the most successful platforms of its kind. This time at Chr-Cha on 22nd July 2017, we were graced by the presence of speaker Dhrupad Karwa (Dhru) who is the 25 year-old CEO and co-founder of HaikuJAM, an app where strangers around the world write poems together. The HaikuJAM app is available on iOS and Android and the way it works is beautiful: write a line and send it out to the world. According to Forbes, HaikuJAM is "the product you didn't know had been missing from your life" and it was also named in the "50 Best Creative Apps" globally by The Guardian. Born in India and raised in India, Dhruv started his entrepreneurial journey at a young age of 14. In the interaction he shared about his journey and challenges, giving great insights into the entrepreneurial journey.
