“Navigating the Evolving Venture Capital Landscape for Edge AI Start-ups,” a Presentation from HPE Pathfinder

Todd Poole, Director of Venture Capital Investments for HPE Pathfinder Ventures, presents the “Navigating the Evolving Venture Capital Landscape for Edge AI Start-ups” tutorial at the May 2023 Embedded Vision Summit.

The venture capital environment has undergone a huge shift in the past year. In this talk, Poole explains how the VC landscape has changed and the implications for start-ups. He examines the impacts on valuations, VC’s willingness to fund, appetite for risk and leverage in deal structuring and terms negotiation.

Pool explores how AI and ML hardware and software companies have been affected differently from the broader start-up ecosystem and considers the distinct challenges faced by start-ups in the edge AI sector. He offers guidance for founders, soon-to-be-founders and start-up employees on how to navigate this dynamic environment and strategize effectively in response to changing market conditions.
