    The environment for startups has become dramatically more challenging since 2017. The health check of startups is 1 of the best indicators for overall societal mobility. The quick dropping survival rate only tells the bigger story on which the wealth distribution has been increasingly shifting towards 1%, and the wealth gap is widening further worldwide. The extreme inequality is also 1 of the fundamental drivers behind the outbreaks protests and acts of violence from Hong Kong, India, Brazil, and UK et cetera.

    Leap-jumping Inventions not only create economic growth, and they also stir up the pool of wealth distribution. The truth is that we haven't been able to match up with the electronic revolution, the mobile revolution, therefore, the same speed of productivity growth created by them.
