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.
The addition of Wozniak, who co-founded Apple with Steve Jobs, adds significant credibility to the company. In addition, he will help identify technology companies worthy of investment, who will be connected to the company’s board of serial entrepreneurs.
“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.”
