VC-A 2022 Newsletter

Now that we found war...

...what are we gonna do with it?

  • Where secessionists advocate disharmony and division, we look for build-ups and offer post-merger integration services.
  • Where fanatics and extremists spread fake news, we team up with regulated entities for more transparency.
  • Where warmongers bellow propaganda, we uncover ESG solutions to improve people's health and well-being.
  • Where disgruntled politicians wage war for oil and gas, we help develop renewable energy solutions.
  • Where dictators and despots begin war games, we build a metaverse and issue NFTs.
  • Where tyrants and autocrats only understand 20's century brutal force, we retaliate with 21st-century measures.

We don't make war, we help companies grow their business for a better life.
