Conclusion of the Series:

Just a quick recap of all the things we have discussed over the past few weeks:
Week 1: If you are building an AI startup, it’s better to focus on a Vertical application rather than a Horizontal AI application. There are numerous sources to help you successfully find the data, and there are also some horizontal tools you can leverage to build an MVP.
Week 2: For VCs your best bets to make some money within the AI space are to invest in a new product (PlanGrid), or to invest in a company that is generating valuable data, while also generating algorithms.
Week 3: For GPs/LPs, expect a high TVPI for your fund working within the mobility/AI space where the value of most startups has yet to be fully realized. Although understand that TVPI, does not guarantee a direct conversion to DPI.
