AI will fundamentally change the enterprise.

Artificial intelligence is positioned to rapidly reinvent business, the economy, and how people work and interact with each other. Just as electrification changed every single major industry a century ago, many think we’re in the phase where AI will change every major category and industry. By some estimates, 90 percent of all data on the internet is unstructured. Enterprises have an enormous opportunity to gain insights from this data, and it will become a competitive necessity to analyze it to achieve valuable and actionable insights to help shape business outcomes.

But the promise of AI and its reality are two very different things.

This month, we have the pleasure of being joined by Ruslan Belkin. With his unique insight, we will draw on his leadership and experience from industry leading companies like LinkedIn, Twitter, Salesforce, Netscape, and his newest role at Progressly. In that role, Ruslan is looking at the beginnings of a new category of enterprise software focused on operational performance as a whole.Together we'll learn what the future looks like from the eyes of investors and innovators who are pioneering advances in AI and creating the next enterprise categories.

Pairings is a modern dinner party.

In a world of exponential technological growth, the future comes sooner than you think. Sway Ventures is bringing together influential investors, entrepreneurs, and visionaries for a private dinner focused on the innovations that will influence the future. Our dinners convene investing, business and technology leaders, with a focus on bold, inspiring ideas. At one table, eye-to-eye, we share insights into the trends and transformations reshaping our future. We’ll spotlight specific luminaries at the frontiers of technology, industry, and academia, and uncover hidden opportunities at the edge of the new economy. From artificial intelligence to machine learning, we seek to understand the full impact of digital technologies on the global economy. And while the next seismic shift is difficult to predict, we'll look at how the way we work, organize, build, play and even govern, is going to change, and how we can shape the transformation through capital, innovation, and leadership. 

We begin each evening with drinks and mingling in the main room. Depending on the night, we may have some thought provoking talks or entertaining acts in store. Eventually we seat all of our diners at one long communal table, where our guest chef and their team for that evening, serve and explain each course to the entire dining group at once. They carefully pair that meal with a series of wines or cocktails that match the aesthetic and flavor of the meal. This is a chance to slow down, to savor and interact with a diverse group of peers, and we think it’s worth it for the shared experience this format creates.
