VC Creating Markets & Future Proofing Industries

Mar 11, 2022

10:00am – 11:00am CT

Traditionally, large scale innovations took a median time of 32 years to go from initial innovation to commercialization, cars being close to 70 years and nuclear power close to 40. With global venture hitting $643B in 2021, and over 900 tech companies being valued at over a billion dollars at the close of the year, we are seeing a dynamic evolution in market creation. Venture’s ability to pour billions into private markets and tech companies has now decreased the current technological innovation lifecycle to 5-7 years. This is transformative. How do you keep up? What does this mean for industries and investors? And how should entrepreneurs build?
