Innovations driven by semiconductors are enabling growth across multiple inflections - AI, AR/ VR, Autonomous Vehicles, Industrial IoT, Robotics, Healthcare etc. Our panel of leading VCs (strategic and financial) and a hardware accelerator will discuss how and where they are investing in these semiconductor-driven inflections. We will discuss the opportunities and challenges for entrepreneurs pursuing these deeptech-driven market inflections. We will discuss whether the opportunities are in trailing edge or leading edge nodes. The panelists will also share the best practices for building successful startups.
