We sat down with Spiros Margaris, Venture Capitalist at Margaris Ventures and AI Influencer to discuss the state of VC funding of AI and Fintech startups and how crazy thoughts could be the start of an AI business. I have spent most of my professional career in the hedge fund and startup world. I also founded my own startups in New York during the dotcom era, so I know what it means when things don't go as planned, and what it can mean personally, with all the bitter consequences. I have been primarily involved in the fintech, insurtech and AI space as an investor and advisor through my firm Margaris Ventures. I have been a keynote speaker at major technology and banking events, where I have been fortunate to meet very interesting people and exchange thoughts and ideas.
