Ankur Jain | How Entrepreneurship Can Solve Some Of Our Biggest Systemic Problems

When Ankur Jain was 11 years old, he wanted to play in the basketball team and believed he needed a special pair of shoes to jump higher. So he coded a website, phoned the shoe company and asked to speak to the CEO. Ankur told the CEO that he would advertise their shoes on his website if they mailed him a pair. The CEO sent Ankur a pair of luxury sports shoes. Ankur used the shoes to tryout for the basketball team. He didn't make the cut. Today, Ankur is an entrepreneur and the CEO of Kairos, a venture fund dedicated to making the lives of our generation easier by solving some of the worlds biggest problems.
