Demo Day: Why the Traditional Accelerator Model is Failing Tough Technologies
Saturday, October 14, 2017
3:15 PM - 3:45 PM
HUBweek sponsored by Bank of America
Fady Saad is a co-founder of MassRobotics. He is a technology strategist and a passionate entrepreneur who will explain why the traditional startup ecosystem is failing to support tough technologies such as Artificial Intelligence and Robotics. Fady argues that if society wants to benefit from these transformational technologies, then the traditional ecosystem must evolve. He will discuss the challenges facing these capital and time intensive startups and why the traditional short-term approach of VCs will not work for them. He will explain how the ecosystem has started to adapt and create “startup escalators” such as MassRobotics, LabCentral, Greentown Labs and The Engine to help these fledgling technologies flourish now and in the future.
