It’s a new streaming series described as “the only show that can make you rich.” Join Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, entrepreneur Silvina Moschini and political advisor Moe Vela on Tuesday, Nov. 16 at 10:00 a.m. ET as the three stars of “Unicorn Hunters” describe how both the judges and viewers at home can invest in companies vying to become the next tech “unicorn,” those privately held businesses valued at $1 billion or more.

Highlights

“I’m usually a bit more skeptical thinking about alternatives… because you can be sold anything on the internet… Does it seem to me like it’ll be able, engineering wise, to be created and manufactured? Often, the products are in the health field and it’s hard to say ‘does it do the same job as what it’s replacing?’ It might be much less costly than something else but only do a part of the job, so I’m always thinking this way… what are the ‘gotchas’?” (Washington Post Live)
“We would have pitched that we had a product that was five years ahead of the rest of the world and what they were trying and that this was going to be a future… Even big analysts back then were very questionable, ‘Is this worth anything?’ All the computer companies said no. Hewlett Packard where I worked turned me down five times for the personal computer… We actually found an angel [investor] who listened to our story… and saw that this might be one of those real big opportunities.” (Washington Post Live)
“Different from other shows, we believe the interactive component that can enable people to become richer… And we do believe the world needs more millionaires, not more billionaires. So anyone in the world can invest and support these amazing entrepreneurs from all over the world.” (Washington Post Live)
“We create access. At ‘Shark Tank,’ it’s five people or whatever… we’re watching them just get richer because they’re the only ones that can invest. To me, the heart, the vibe, the soul, the pulse of ‘Unicorn Hunters’… is that we are creating access, access for the innovative entrepreneur… and access to potential investors that’s unprecedented… Everybody has equal access to wealth creation.” (Washington Post Live)

Silvina Moschini

Silvina harnessed the power of remote work way before it became the normal way to do business following the global pandemic in 2020. She co founded the SaaS solution TransparentBusiness to enable and facilitate remote work. As founder and CEO of SheWorks!, Silvina helps thousands of companies scale globally with talent while empowering women to find jobs in the digital marketplace.
