Wow! That’s the only word I can use to describe this Gathering! Our community came out in full force yesterday to support the newly created venture between us and TechSTL. It was a packed house all night with so much happening that if you weren’t there you definitely missed out! Let’s get into, COLLIDE: Artificial Intelligence.
Our first session was a showcase of 6 different companies all supporting or directly impacting AI. It was such an honor to have SLU, Object Computing, Balto, Capacity & Mitas Analytics show us what they have in store for the future of this booming industry.
At the same time, we heard from Dave Costenero, Crypto Economist at Protocol Labs. Dave broke down the importance of AI in the world of Blockchain & Web3 and how all of these three emerging technologies can lean on and support one another.
Lastly, we had an all-star panel of Yaqi Chen, John Simonawitz, Mike Fernando & Amy Heger speak at our AI Expert Panel. Each of them spoke about their personal experience with AI, their successes, their failures and how important they believe this next step in technology is. There were definitely some gems of knowledge dropped in this one!
As you can see, we had a great turnout and an even greater cast of experts. This was thanks to the hard work of our friends over at TechSTL who we are so grateful decided to bring their community to merge with ours. Serendipitous Collisions at work people! If you missed this one, don’t worry we are working with TechSTL to bring you a COLLIDE event Every Third Thursday of the month! So, I can count on seeing you in the next one right?
That’s all for me this time VenCaf Community, enjoy your weekend, and I will see you all next week for Community & Corporate Partnerships!
