No one has a crystal ball that we know of. But we feel we’ve come close to it on this one. We’re rubbing our hands together with anticipation because on the 15th of June, we’re hosting David S Rose for an hour-long Linqto Learn Session. David S. Rose is a futurist, an Associate Founder of Singularity University, the author of the NYT best-selling books "Angel Investing" and "The Startup Checklist", and expert on frontier and space technologies. David has been described as "New York's Archangel" by Forbes, "patriarch of Silicon Alley" by Red Herring, and a "world conquering entrepreneur" by BusinessWeek. He was the original investor and Chairman of the Board of JUMP Bikes (exited to Uber), Comixology (exited to Amazon) and Panjiva (exited to S&P Global). He’s funded over 120 early-stage companies with exits to Facebook, Google, Intel and more. If anyone can see round corners, David can.
Why is it important to have this conversation right now? Well, it’s a dizzying time. We’re seeing exponential growth in areas like Generative AI, the commercialization of space, robotics, Machine Learning, and nanotechnology, to name a few. We want to understand why it is critical that AI is being used across all industries and companies. We want to know how space factors into all of this.
And we’re watching the singularity get ever nearer, a hypothetical future point in time at which technological growth becomes uncontrollable and irreversible, resulting in unforeseeable changes to human civilization. As Singularity University's Founding Track Chair for Finance, Entrepreneurship & Economics, for over fifteen years David has been teaching and writing about the next paradigm shift, when computers and humans meet, which is projected to happen in 2045.
So, how do you make bets in the next 20 years with so much change upon us? David will help us understand why "any company designed for success in the 20th century is doomed to failure in the 21st".
Linqto is your partner in investing in today’s dreamers, building tomorrow’s realities. We know you are as eager as we are to learn from the most brilliant minds who can see around corners that we can’t yet see around. Please join us and tell your friends!
