Mara Zepeda | Zebras Unite | Twitter What Mara and Zebras Unite are doing really blew me away ~ Building off an article challenging the Silicon Valley idea of unicorns, Mara, and fellow ZU co-founders, started a journey that continues to navigate alternative, and more sustainable, investments structures. To  me, I just wondered, how does someone arrive at such a place, and pursue doing such work ?!? Apparently, for Mara it started with journalism and economics ... An intriguing path to be certain, or at least in my jovial opinion; You ready for a bit of research ??
