Startups are going to save the world
People are going to read that and think that I’m exaggerating, but I actually believe it, and I have serious reasons. Startups create value. Sure, part of that is generating money and returns. But it’s also value that recognizes that some startups are more important to the world than others. Now, I’m not saying that we won’t work with a startup that is purely entertainment; it’s simply to say that our core focus is on finding startups that change the world for the better. That’s why my cofounder Nicolas Colin started promoting the idea of entrepreneurship as the new politics. And all of us believe in our hearts that it’s true: if you want to change the world in the 21st century, don’t go into politics — become an entrepreneur.
