BUILDING EQUITABLE PRODUCTS & SERVICES: JULY 24, 2020

Justine Evirs CEO & Founder, The Paradigm Switch and Courage to Create

I am on a mission to redefine the word innovation. I don’t think it belongs to just Silicon Valley and millionaire tech startup founders. We all have the power to create something that wasn’t there before, and that, in my opinion, is the real definition of innovation. I want to create a movement of courageous creators and put the power back into the hands of the people.
