It is rare in a person’s professional career when they get to join a team that’s not just providing another solution to a problem that already exists, but is creating an entirely new marketplace. Imagine becoming a co-founder and equity owner in a company creating a product or service that doesn’t exist today but will become the standard way we all do things years from now. Possibly it’s a new internet application, or a medical science breakthrough. Are these opportunities out there? Do these young companies need your help?
