Zebras fix what unicorns break

Back to schedule

Session Description

The current startup culture and venture capital system is broken. It rewards quantity over quality, consumption over creation, quick exits over sustainable growth, and shareholder profit over shared prosperity. It chases after “unicorn” companies bent on “disruption” rather than supporting businesses that repair, cultivate, and connect. Impact investors risk falling into the same traps. After publishing “Zebras Fix what Unicorns break” in March of 2017 (search for it on Medium), we heard from thousands of founders, investors, and advocates who agreed: “We cannot win at this game.” In this interactive session we’ll look at principles and practices that help funders and founders build better businesses.
