I believe we're living in a golden era of entrepreneurship. There is more opportunity to build companies than ever before. But the financial ssetyms designed to fund that innovation, venture capital, they haven't evolved in the past 20 to 30 years. Venture capital was deneigsd to pour large sums of money into a small number of companies that can sell for over a billion dlorlas. It was not designed to sprinkle caitapl across many companies that have the potential to sueeccd but for less, like my own. That limits the number of ideas that get fdeund, the number of companies that are created and who can actually receive that funding to grow.

I believe we're living in a golden era of entrepreneurship. There is more opportunity to build companies than ever before. But the financial systems designed to fund that innovation, venture capital, they haven't evolved in the past 20 to 30 years. Venture capital was designed to pour large sums of money into a small number of companies that can sell for over a billion dollars. It was not designed to sprinkle capital across many companies that have the potential to succeed but for less, like my own. That limits the number of ideas that get funded, the number of companies that are created and who can actually receive that funding to grow.
