E027: Tiana Laurence: Laurence Innovation
May 13, 2021
Laurence Innovation (LI) is an investment fund powering the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR). At a time when emerging fields like artificial intelligence (AI), the internet of things (IoT), genetic engineering, and quantum computing are rapidly transforming the global economy, we can’t afford to overlook the most innovative entrepreneurs in the country. However, that’s exactly what far too many investors (particularly early-stage VCs) are doing by failing to fund diverse founders, confining their investments to saturated markets like software, and using cumbersome investment models that prevent them from taking risks.
