A global benefit concert for Ukraine


It’s easy to have a grand idea; putting that plan into action is not. Victoria Yampolsky conceived of a global concert in support of Ukraine.

“I wanted to talk with Victoria because her start-from-nothing effort is a classic entrepreneurial gambit that, in some ways, just shouldn’t exist.”
