BEAUTY PORTFOLIO

How to Apply?

TBD

Criteria

1. Boring Services
“Too Low Margin”

The world doesn’t need another social media app. We still need to figure out recycling, improve nursing homes, and give small businesses a chance.

2. Hard Work
“Too Capital Intensive”

We live in the greatest economic period in global history, but the profits have gone to a few. We need to produce again and fold blue collar industries and communities into the digital revolution.

3. Unpleasant Spaces
“Too Resistant to Change”

The metaverse is nice, but 58% of Americans still work in physical spaces. We have 9 millions apps, but a generation can’t afford 1 home.

4. Inequitable Structures
“Too Much Red Tape”

Many great Americans are still blocked from opportunities. COVID-19 cracked our HR and social infrastructure. Entrepreneurs can now exploit these cracks to democratize access.
