How David is building a better working world

“I am building a better working world by highlighting and celebrating entrepreneurship in the Americas to inspire and encourage future generations of entrepreneurs.

Entrepreneurs are the foundation of a strong and vibrant economy. Responsible for the vast majority of all ‘net new job growth’, they are the mold-breakers redefining the way we work, live and play. By helping to build and support a robust entrepreneurial ecosystem, I am contributing to a stronger, more vibrant working world.”
