Mapping the RISC-V startup ecosystem leading a new movement in computer chip design. Chances are, unless you’re already in the semiconductor industry, you probably haven’t heard of the term “RISC-V” or know what the letters stand for.
It’s incredibly tough to build a B2B startup. Founders applying novel technologies to improve traditional industries deserve nothing but our respect. Sales cycles can be slow, early stage investors can be skittish to invest without more validation, and incumbents’ intentions to compete in your space are often a constant threat.
Space exploration offers a profound and evolving viewpoint on our place among the stars: Is our home planet unique? Can human civilization extend beyond it? What else is out there in this vast, tremendous universe?
Rapidly advancing automation technologies like computer vision have enormous potential for dramatic societal impact, and need to be applied with caution. Facial recognition is one of the most scrutinized examples today of applied computer vision.
Insights from our first Assessing China program in industrial IoT, and how startups can accelerate business development in China. Comet’s Assessing China program for Industry 4.0 startups had a simple goal — bring the top AI/robotics startups in a specific industry to China to meet with leading companies and de-risk go-to-market partnerships for both sides.
Samiron Ray talks about investing in AI, strategies for evaluating AI startups, and why AI startups don’t fit the typical lean startup model on the Future Tech Podcast.
Over the last half century, China has evolved into a manufacturing powerhouse, maintaining the title as the world’s greatest exporter since 2009. But the low-wage and high-savings business models of China’s manufacturers is now proving to be insufficient in competing with advanced economies across the globe.
Technology companies face a difficult decision right now: enter China to catch expansion opportunities before it’s too late, or wait to see how market dynamics develop? It’s a daunting challenge for a company to do alone. Perhaps the question then should be: who’s already established in China that can help simplify the process?
China is a bit of a black box when it comes to entering as a foreign business, and as a founder and investor I’ve seen a couple companies — specifically startups — get messed with. In China, no one messes with Legend. It’s only logical to choose manufacturing as our first industry-focused Assessing China program.
While the conversation around electric vehicles (EVs) in the United States tends to be dominated by Elon Musk and Tesla, it’s really only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the broader…
