My biggest challenge...
Unfortunately, time and distance are my biggest challenges; as I move frequently to various locations around the world, I am often less able to deepen ties to local communities as much as I would like. Crowd-funding sites like Wefunder really help bridge these obstacles.
I want to invest in...
While I am interested in a vast array of fields, my investments should go beyond a simple financial return on investment to include a positive impact on the community. Improving lives through health and education, facilitating inter- and intra- community interaction, solving complex social issues, protecting the environment, mentoring the young, reducing poverty and inequality, promoting gender equality and empowering women and the marginalized (LGBTI-identified, racial and ethnic minorities, and persons with disabilities) and promoting sustainability are within these parameters, especially if the investment is for something innovative and evidence-based.
