About PALACED

To make a difference, we need to take action.

PALACED is a newsletter for anti-capitalist creators. It’s a newsletter for young people who want to change the world.

Creating should not be a rich mans game. If you care about something, you should take initiative. You should organize, you should grow community, you should write, you should speak, you should listen, you should build.

Creating is not a rich man’s game. It’s our game. It’s how we’re going to change the world.

That’s why I started PALACED. The goal is to inspire young people to build what they want to see in the world, and to do so for social good.

What’s in the newsletter?

Every week, I send out a newsletter with the goal of empowering you to take action. The topics are really diverse: psychology, philosophy, economics, business, tech.

But the mindset is the same: to build great things, you need great ideas and mental models.

Additionally, I’ll write a weekly essay where I go in-depth on a particular topic. Feel free to recommend any ideas when you subscribe!

Who are you?

PALACED is written by me, Jihad Esmail. I’ve spent the last few years empower young entrepreneurs and learning about what makes entrepreneurial communities tick.

I was Director of Launch at Northwestern University, one of the largest student-run startup incubators in the nation. I spent three months in my hometown of Youngstown, Ohio laying the foundations for a student entrepreneurship program, kicking off with Hustle: Ohio’s first student-focused entrepreneurship conference. I also conducted research on diversity in entrepreneurship, diving into how we can empower a more diverse group of leaders and organizers.

I’m always learning more, and I want to put those ideas into action. Together, we can do amazing things.
