When you think about the individuals who really shaped humanity over the past few centuries - your mind probably wanders to people like Albert Einstein, Picasso, Henry Ford, or Steve Jobs. These are the people who dared to dream about the future, to create masterpieces of art, or to invent new technologies. But what makes someone successful? Is it just that they had great talent or is it partly the circumstances of their life?
Pioneer is on a mission to help discover people with the potential to become great innovators and give them the resources they need to be successful. Daniel Gross is the founder of Pioneer and previously was a partner at Y-Combinator and a former Director at Apple. In this episode of our Building A Unicorn series, Daniel shares the story of Pioneer and his mission to uncover hidden potential across the globe.
