  • How to get your AI and Bot company funded
    How to get your AI and Bot company funded Stewart Rogers, Director of Marketing Technology, VentureBeat Jun 15 2017 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    In 2016, when major platforms like Facebook gave developers the keys to the artificial intelligence kingdom, and advances in AI technology and natural language processing started breaking the user interface mold, analysts predicted that chatbots were going to change the game.

    Bots flooded the market—and then they vanished. They weren't backed with solid business models, addressing real pain points or solving problems, because marketers weren't asking the right questions, customers weren't engaging, and chatbots were too often gimmicks instead of disruptors.

    How do you become the next unicorn in the bots and artificial intelligence space? How do you catch the eye and win the heart of that top VC firm? Join our latest interactive VB Live event to find out!

    In this live virtual executive roundtable, you'll:
    * Learn what entrepreneurs need to do to get noticed by top VC firms
    * Look at the most active venture capitalists in tech today
    * Discover the biggest mistakes made by foundering startups
    * Identify the weaknesses that are keeping you from becoming the next unicorn
