Fireside Chat with OpenAI’s CEO Sam Altman

I thoroughly enjoyed yesterday’s fireside chat between OpenAI’s CEO Sam Altman and Shopify’s CEO Tobi Lutke!

Despite the downturn, it is a super exciting time to be an entrepreneur and an investor in tech startups. We are in the midst of a “once-in-a-decade” paradigm shift as a number of new tech trends emerge. Generative AI is one of them. When these new transformative technologies achieved mass adoption, they changed behaviour, democratized access, and unlocked values that weren’t possible previously. New startups will more easily challenge the old guards. An exciting time indeed!

Specifically, Altman said: “It should be a big moment for Toronto,” which I couldn’t agree more. In the last decade, Toronto has become one of the world’s AI epic centres. TSFV has already invested in many Canadian AI companies. Look forward to seeing the proliferation of a new crop of moonshots born and raised in your home and native land!

Thanks Lisa Zarzeczny and team Elevate for organizing!
