Having grown up under the poverty level, I fiercely believe in unleashing the potential of all, an approach deeply rooted in equality of opportunity and the economic realities of wealth and human capital creation. I have spent my career helping promote innovation, venture investment, and entrepreneurship worldwide. By promoting entrepreneurial innovation, we can create jobs, give opportunities to people no matter their circumstances, and transform local and global economies.
