Global Impact, One Startup at a Time

"I get about 400 invitations to speak a day, and I decline usually about 399 of them a day. But when I heard that BEST FEST was going to be here with all the great things they are doing, I had to jump on the opportunity to say YES. The reason I wanted to do that is because this is the best showcase certainly in the region — and quite possibly in the entire country — that links sustainability and economic prosperity. This is where we connect greens to jobs."
