The staid paradigm has failed to change with the times and now benefits only companies with billion-dollar potential. She presents an alternative that democratizes access to start-up capital and has the potential to fuel innovation, social change and diversity. Anburajan’s engaging presentation will appeal to anyone who is interested in launching a start-up but who lacks friends in high places to help get the venture off the ground.
In this summary, you will learn
- How the venture capital system is flawed,
- Why initial coin offerings (ICOs) are a viable alternative and
- How digital currencies can democratize investment.
