About this Event

When there is a thunderstorm in the global economy, many people choose to stay within the vessel of comfort to keep themselves away from the conflicts and competitions outside. Yet, there are few of them willing to throw away the life-jackets, courageously jump into the boundless “Blue Ocean” to navigate their unique way of life. We call these people “Entrepreneurs”.

Artificial Intelligence seems to be a must-included element in the entrepreneurship of the future. However, even you are the expert in A.I. who understands the most advanced technology, do you have a feasible model to sustain your business? It’s not enough to be successful with just knowledge, bravery, and vision. You need some pragmatic tactics to build an unsinkable ark for the prolonged voyage across the unpredictable Blue Ocean.

In exploring further, Mr Simon Squibb (serial entrepreneur and founder of Nest and Mettā) and Mr Lavine Hemlani (Founder & CEO of Xccelerate aka Vice President of AI Society of Hong Kong) are going to deep dive into the strategies on constructing the business models for AI Startups throughout a fireside chat on 18 June. Register Here for FREE
