Startup culture one of the most powerful things one can have – Michael Jordaan

Startup culture is one of the most powerful things any society can have says SA venture capitalist Michael Jordaan, who adds startups can help solve many of South Africa’s challenges.
‘I hate to say it but the Americans get so many things wrong — including their president, including gun control and so on — but what they did get right is how they view startups, how they view failure that that’s a good thing and you can learn from that and start over, how corporates will sometimes buy small startups to sometimes get the talent in-house,’ says Jordaan.
