We have this belief that opportunity is everywhere. It’s born proportionately equally in every community and yet the opportunity to connect with capital with investment, with customers, isn’t distributed everywhere. So how can we use our platform to bridge that gap? Across race, place and gender, we’ve tried to be as diverse as the communities we serve.— Joe Kirgues
