AI gone wild. CRISPR edits industries. Expensive virtual stuff.
Do the hustle
Two weeks ago, we added simultaneous translation into Japanese for The Future of Fintech (June 11-13, NYC) conference.
We received many requests for other languages, so I’m happy to announce that we’ll also be doing simultaneous translation into Chinese and Spanish on the main stage.
This will be our most international Future of Fintech ever, with participants coming from global startups as well as massive financial services institutions from around the world.
To take advantage of simultaneous translation, get your tickets by May 31 and make sure to check the translation box when you register. And if you already registered, please let me or the events team (firstname.lastname@example.org) know if you are interested.

Big co to insurgent co
I interviewed a big co exec recently who asked a great question: What trips up people from a big company who might come to CB Insights?
Great question, in my opinion.
I told him there are 3 things.
First, the logo on your business card doesn’t do 80% of the work for you. We are a challenger brand, so all the doors that flew open for you before when you were with the multi-billion dollar company don’t fly open so quickly. You will have to work a lot harder for the same results.
I’ll get to the other 2 components below. But first, some research.
Can’t be tamed
Like it or not, AI is changing human civilization, from how we work to how we travel to how we enforce laws.
As the technology advances and becomes more intertwined in our daily lives, its potential for danger is becoming more apparent.
CRISPR is still in the fairly early stages of development, but the gene-editing tool’s price point and flexibility make it widely accessible — and healthcare isn’t the only industry it could transform.
