À propos de ce groupe
Hi! Financial Freedom seekers, In this meetup we focus on learning things related to investing, financial freedom, decision making, real state, etc.
We all know that in the following years FinTech is going to change everything in the finance world, so we want to learn more about this new technologies and make good investments according to this knowledge.
Like the "Open DataScience School Paris", the "Open Investing & FinTech Academy" is mixing 3 approaches to create learning communities. 1. OpenTechSchool (Berlin: co-learning spaces). 2. P2P University (MOOC 2.0 and Learning Circles) and 3. Ecole 42 (self-learning, project oriented, no teachers...). If you're interested in this community be proactive and contact its members.
Payment? No, but ...
Remember: People value what they pay for. Check this article for more info: People don't value free stuff... (http://www.businessinsider.com/people-dont-value-free-stuff-2017-6?IR=T) So, just be aware that this MOOC contains highly valuable knowledge and appreciate the fact that you can buy it for a few euros... it certainly worth much more than that!!!
Who we are?
The Open Investing & FinTech Academy Paris is a 'co-learning community' about Investing and FinTech. Feel free to come to co-learn with us and to share your knowledge. You may have your own projects. [what is co-learning? think about co-working spaces... but about learning... or the evolution of a traditional 'book clubs']
A good example of a 'learning community' is the Advanced-Machine-Learning-Study-Group at Berlin.
If there is something like this in Berlin, why not in Paris? Think about it and let's make this happen! Besides why not in finance or investing... there are many books out there and it's clear that if you meet with other highly motivated people who want to learn this you will learn much more!
What are Learning Circles?
"Learning Circles are lightly-facilitated study groups for learners who want to take online courses together, in-person. Learning Circles are peer supported, facilitated by non-content experts, hosted in publicly accessible spaces, designed to be taken with few prerequisites, and free for learners. You can think of Learning Circles like a book group for learning." [from: https://learningcircles.p2pu.org/en/ ]
Finally, I'd like to share with you this quotation:
"Adult learning is more than alternative education, self-help, self-study, or training. Self-directed inquiry can free you from the cultural traps of today’s postmodern world. When you think for yourself, you take control of your life. Intellectual ability and critical thinking soon become substitutes for paper credentials. You'll enjoy a higher quality of life, make smarter career choices, and begin to see ways to better our society. Simply stated aggressive learning is the most practical guide to a passionately rewarding life." Charles D.
