Andrew Yang

Founder, Venture for America

Andrew Yang's vision is simple: create jobs. To do so, he founded Venture for America, an organization that connects recent college graduates with early stage startups instead of traditional corporations--where he started his career before becoming an entrepreneur. He is the author of Smart People Should Build Things.

Imagine a country where the same proportion of talent that goes to financial services or law school goes instead to early-stage companies. A relatively small proportion of the best and brightest are going there now; that's what we are setting out to change.
