To stay ahead of everybody else and beat disruption you need to constantly reinvent yourself. Business Models expire faster than ever before and you don’t want to become obsolete alongside their decline.

Hospitals need more resources. The education system needs more resources. Small businesses, on the verge of bankruptcy, need more resources. And someone will have to foot the bill. That’s why it’s urgent to get these funds from tax havens.
