On a mission to equalize access to entrepreneurship globally and make the ecosystems more inclusive and diverse
Einstein said that those who have the privilege to know have the responsibility to act. I know that today entrepreneurship is a luxury for the happy few, those who can access education, time, social capital. I also know that it's a very powerful vehicle for bottom-up change, tackling local problems and creating employment, so I feel responsible to making it accessible to any motivated person.
