When I talk about politics I am filled with sadness and a sense of near powerlessness to make the world a better place. But when I talk to entrepreneurs, I am filled with hope. Where most of us see problems, they imagine solutions... and solutions that scale.
Here are just some of the companies blowing me away, all local/VVM companies making the world a better place!
