Why did you choose to work at a VC?

“What is a startup?” I believe a startup can be defined as a dynamic team working with alacrity to create and promote new worldviews and values that are of benefit to society and that will enrich people’s lives. I believe our mission is creating a strong team and supporting startups and entrepreneurs in achieving their goals.
