“From my education, I have come to the understanding that capitalism is wrong. The way we practice capitalism is broken. So, I have made it my life goal  to understand the ways improper capitalism has affected the communities in which we live, not so we can banish it but so that we can use it to our advantage. When done correctly, entrepreneurs can lift society and the environment together, solving the problems of today and the future. But this can only be done through a sustainable framework and conscious capitalism.”
