“I think downturns are always a good resetting when there’s been irresponsible behaviour. They absolutely suck. They hurt people. People lose their jobs. Investors lose their money and it’s to be expected…[but] when it comes to innovation you need that resetting.”
Eamon also chats about AI as a sector, as an investor, what he looks for in a sector and what a good startup investment looks like.
