What a privilege to host visionary leader Andrew Yang (find him on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube!) who is running for the office of President in 2020. He has a very detailed platform to address the myriad of challenges we face as a nation. Andrew is a brilliant and serious contender. I would encourage you to take a good, hard look at his home page and read his positions across the spectrum of issues.
Andrew Yang is an entrepreneur and author running for President as a Democrat in 2020. Andrew has worked in startups and early-stage growth companies as a founder or executive for almost twenty years.
