Today’s fireside chat features two passionate entrepreneurs: Xu Peng and Matthieu Bodin. Join us to get close to them as we ask how it is possible to succeed following totally different paths - Xu Peng as a nationally recognized, multiple award winning scientist; and Matthieu working with some of the worlds most innovative multinational VC’s and corporates. We aim to gain a deeper understanding into the opportunities of working with State backed research specifically in the fields of AI security technology and Atmospheric Optics. On the other hand we aim to better understand the methods used by highly successful investors such as Techstars in stimulating entrepreneurial communities, helping entrepreneurs start, adapt and succeed.
