The International Advantage

Jorge Rios, Bridgefy
In conversation with: Ravi Belani, Stanford University

Jorge Rios, founder and CEO of Bridgefy, observes that international entrepreneurs often have unexpected advantages. As long as a startup is registered as a U.S. company, he emphasizes, the founders don’t have to physically be in the U.S. to raise capital. Meanwhile, he finds, international founders’ life experiences give often them valuable perspectives on overlooked opportunities.
