RockFlow founder Vakee Lai was invited to Stanford University to share her experience and thoughts on VC in the AI industry
On June 9th, Vakee Lai, founder of RockFlow, was invited to Stanford University by the Association of Chinese Students and Scholars (ACSSS) of Stanford University. As the largest and most influential Chinese community organization in the region, ACSSS has invited outstanding scholars and entrepreneurs from various fields to hold seminars on many occasions. This time, Vakee shared her experience of switching from AI investment to AI + FinTech entrepreneurship and her long-term observation and thinking on the AI venture capital ecosystem for students and young entrepreneurs at the school.
Vakee pointed out that when investing in the AI industry, first-class VCs can “meet when someone was still ‘a nobody’” with excellent founders. When talking about the difference between the Primary and Secondary markets, Vakee believes that the essence of the Secondary markets is a liquidity feast, which can quickly trial and error, and optimize strategies in real time; the feedback period of the Primary markets is long, but it can cultivate top down thinking habits. In addition, Vakee also introduced her journey of turning to AI + FinTech entrepreneurship. She believes that the combination of New AI Era, New Generation and New Markets will breed huge opportunities.
In the final Q&A session, the Stanford audience asked about the specific applications of AI and the challenges of integrating financial, gaming and community-type products. Vakee emphasized the importance of diversification and learning from the user’s perspective, to find features that are truly beneficial to the trading experience.
This sharing to the Stanford audience was a meaningful exchange. As an AI-driven fintech company, RockFlow will continue to explore beneficial experience in fields such as AI and gaming, adhering to the creator’s belief, adhering to the vision of simple and fun investing, and creating an investment paradise that suits the preferences of Generation Z.
