Leadership is a rare but must-have talent to all entrepreneurs
We proactively seek out technical founders with a prove track record of leadership success. China is still in the process of nurturing its first generation of tech entrepreneurship but most of its early success has not been able to supply sufficient management talents to startups. We expect founders to become CEOs.
Many innovations today are no longer the result of linear technology evolution but from a complex combination of multi-disciplinary progress. Nearly all questions we are trying to answer today were asked decades ago., e.g., the term "AI" was coined at a workshop at Dartmouth College back in 1956.
Almost every industry is worth reimagining with what we are capable of today. Internet would not have reached 5 billion people without the fast adoption of mobile phone. Imagine ARPANET on October 29, 1969; Mobile would not have reached 7 billion people without iOS and Android. Imagine John Mitchell and Martin Cooper from Motorola on April 3, 1973. Now we have robotaxis and CRISPR / Cas9 gene editting tools: reimagine everything.
