Description
Entrepreneur and venture capitalist Ross Baird argues that the innovations that truly matter don't see the light of day. A handful of people in a handful of cities are deciding, behind closed doors, which entrepreneurs get a shot to succeed. The resulting system creates rising income inequality, stifled entrepreneurial ambition, social distrust, and political uncertainty. In this book, Baird demonstrates how and where to find better ideas by lifting up often-overlooked people, places, and industries. -- Adapted from book jacket.
