"It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion"
- Adam Smith, Father of Modern Economics, Father of Capitalism
“The average startup exit is over 200 million dollars, imagine what that can do for positive change."
"Crunchbase data, as noted in an Inc article, shows that "the average successful startup has raised $41 million in venture capital and exited for $242.9 million since 2007." We need to start rethinking the power of this capital. Imagine that cash being injected into the hands of ambitious, young entrepreneurs looking to spark positive change — individuals who, at their core, embrace the value of giving back."
