Katie Sgarro | August 3, 2015 | Impact
The thing about startups is that they can actually change the world and anyone with a vision can start one. A year ago, I would have rolled my eyes and chalked this thinking up to blind optimism. I lived in a world where technology was solely for finding information and communication purposes.
