We spoke with Adeo to find out where he thinks the world will be in 100 years and how entrepreneurs are going to change the world.
Far too many entrepreneurs pass on building businesses for purpose in favor of building businesses for profit. However, I believe we have finally arrived at a time where you can build a company that aligns with your values, provide real benefit to the world, and generate returns.
I believe that entrepreneurs can align their personal values with their startup mission to create exponential value for people around the globe. I have seen it happen, and I intend on sharing some lessons on how you can achieve the extraordinary.
For startups specifically, there are many challenges facing humanity and we need companies working on solutions in every category. These categories include humanity’s general well-being, improving the blatant discrepancy between overconsumption and lack of necessities, advances in non-addictive communication, and community improvement through effective governance, to name a few.
I want people who start and lead companies to be aware of the opportunities to make an impact, and take responsibility for contributing positively to our society.
Technology should help highlight the best parts of humanity, not the worst parts – like addiction, vanity, materialism, and tribalism. Instead of preying on our faults and selling us useless products, tech entrepreneurs should help solve some of the biggest problems facing mankind – like poverty, nutrition, healthcare, energy, governance, inequality, and climate change.
You are starting to see a renaissance where more purpose-driven businesses are being created, but we are just scratching the surface. We have an immense opportunity to build a bright future and entrepreneurs are going to lead the way.
You are the average of those that surround you.
Purpose + Passion = Power.
I strongly believe that for every passionate entrepreneur that we empower, an exponential amount of societal value can be created.
