Innovation is affordable and accessible to anyone
Everyone is a founder, life learner

so Execution is Everything!
Innovation is brought to you
nearly instantly, from anywhere!

Innovation could take years,
if not decades to reach you
Starting a new business is no longer a matter of capital
Some of your competitors might be more experienced, better networked, have access to better advisors, more helpful and deeper pocketed investors, larger markets, etc.
