Unpaid collaboration? What does that mean? “Believed in our mission” this is a load of bs. The mission of most startups is to make profits. Unfortunately, many of them rely on unpaid “collaboration” of poor college graduates, that’s how part of the value (read profit) is made at startups. These employees that “decided to provide a brick to build Lumumba’s home” did not “decide”, but rather have to sell their skills and time for income.
