Episode #18: Will being human matter more in the future?

June 9, 2021

‘AI’ seems to be the hottest buzzword of the hour. The advances of tech and specifically AI have been half-century in the making but are now increasingly becoming an essential part of our everyday life - without us often realizing it. But with the amazing possibilities, artificial intelligence brings, also comes fear-mongering. Will we all at some point be replaced? Aren’t there human skills that can not be replicated, like empathy, intuition, complex collaboration, and creativity?

In this episode, we want to discuss which possibilities AI entails for the future and what it means to be human in the era of machines. And to help me with that we have invited Mikael Munck, CEO of 2021.ai

Episode #17: How a VC is becoming inclusive

May 26, 2021

On April 22, 2021, 8 early stage investors in the Danish startup ecosystem, signed The Diversity Commitment. Together with the non-profit organization Female Founders of the Future, the signing partners formulated diversity goals to redesign the ecosystem for more diversity, starting with diminishing the gender gap.

 

A report made by European Women in VC, Unconventional Ventures and experior venture fund sheds light on the fundraising and investment conditions in Central and Eastern Europe, pointing to an unquestionable difficulty faced by women entrepreneurs and women fund managers in accessing finance, a problem that haunts Europe as a whole.

In this episode we are talking with Lars Andersen from Seed Capital to hear more about what exactly they have signed and how they are planning on meeting the goals.

Episode #16: How to Combat Unconscious Biases

Episode #16: How to Combat Unconscious Biases

May 19, 2021

We mostly hear about unconscious biases when we discuss AI governance. But unconscious biases also sabotage our efforts to set up diverse organizations. This is why today we will not only outline the extent of the issue but also showcase some of the emerging action-oriented solutions that leverage tech to further diversity. 

In this episode, we want to discuss how to control for unconscious biases and which mechanisms need to be established to prevent them from conflicting with our conscious targets.

And to help me unfold this conversation with me today is  Nimish Gåtam and Dr. Poornima Luthra

We are looking forward to hear your thoughts.

Episode #15: Bitcoin - making the world a better place or an environmental sin?

Episode #15: Bitcoin - making the world a better place or an environmental sin?

May 12, 2021

Currently, bitcoin consumes the equivalent of a small country. This is one of the arguments against cryptocurrency that you often hear from detractors who like to point out the enormous energy consumption of the bitcoin mining industry. Proponents, however, point out that it is not a zero-sum game and we need to A) consider the good bitcoin brings and B) that bitcoin isn’t competing with countries but is competing with rival assets such as the fiat currencies and gold. 

In this episode, we want to dive into this discussion together with Simon Ousager, CEO & Co-founder of Januar. We would love to continue the conversation with you and figure out the good and the bad bitcoin does for our planet and the people that live on it. What do you think?
