Over the past year or so there have been several “seeds” planted to take on the venture capital industry, but none have really “sprouted” yet. But, just because something hasn’t happened doesn’t mean it won’t happen. Could this be it? Steve Wozniak, a true technology innovator AND co-founder of Apple (yeah, that went well), just announced he stepped in to be co-founder of EQUI Global. That company is dedicated to disrupt the venture capital industry. So, a respected big name leader may start a trend away from how venture capital traditionally operates. EQUI Global, built on a blockchain-powered backend, will focus on technology (duh) and enable investors to trade their investments on outside cryptocurrency exchanges via EquiTokens. This is a big breakthrough, so read more.

“Steve Wozniak, technology innovator and co-founder of Apple, has today been announced as co-founder of EQUI Global, a company dedicated to the disruption of the venture capital industry.
Built on a blockchain-powered backend, EQUI Global is a venture capital fund focusing on technology.
It is designed to disrupt the traditional nature of the industry by allowing non-institutional investments, and by enabling investors to trade their investments on external cryptocurrency exchanges in the form of EquiTokens.
“I get ideas pitched to me every single day in fact dozens and I always say no. Since I co-founded Apple with Steve Jobs, this is about the second time in twenty years that I actually said yes,” said Wozniak.
“I want to be a part of this. It has to be something I really believe in and I really believe in EQUI.”…”
