There are three ways to use tech

  1. Use tech to enhance an existing business, like a mutual fund that lets you open an account online instead of filling a paper form.
  2. Use deep tech to build a product that couldn’t be built before, like self-driving cars. For this, you need the best people in the world in that domain, like PhDs from CMU.
