MESSAGE


By way of analogy, in the absence of superior operating systems, even the best software will be unable to drive that benefit back to the hardware, leading this software to fall by the wayside. Similarly, we want to develop the best “OS” that allows entrepreneurs to “implement” their superior “software” in society and keep it updated for the long run to be of benefit to society.
