ai and big data investing tech terms explained venture capital Oct 04, 2023

ChatGPT has popularized deep tech, but most people don't really know what it is or how it differs from standard software innovation.

Don't be most people. 

This episode will demystify deep tech investing and show you why smart VCs never really take any technological risk (even in the most frontier tech industries).

Learn from James Wang, Partner at Creative Ventures:

  • How deep tech innovation differs from standard software
  • Why investing in ChatGPT is more similar to investing in semi-conductors, than in companies like Slack
  • The typical funding path for a new venture fund: where do they get the money to invest?
  • What you really need to know about tech to be a deep tech investor
