A Note from our CEO, Cait Brumme

We are at a moment in time in which entrepreneurship can and must play a vital role in addressing humanity’s greatest challenges – climate, equality, human health – and in bringing to life the moonshots that will transform life as we know it, such as space commercialization or synthetic biology. Join us in our mission to equip founders to disrupt the status quo. Read Cait's Community Statement here.
