View this email in your browser

This week, San Francisco is hosting the highly anticipated Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Summit!  Alfred and I will be attending the APEC CEO Summit. Perhaps catching up with some of you there? 
 

P.S. Congrats to Databricks for closing additional funding for their Series I round from AT&T Ventures, Sanabil Investments, Qatar Investment Authority (QIA) and more!

Here are a few great reads, watch, etc for this week:

  • ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ณ APEC 2023 101 - APEC is made up of 21 member economies, including the U.S., China, Japan, Russia and Canada. The members account for nearly 50% of global trade and 40% of the global population, giving the U.S. a big platform.  Read more
  • ๐Ÿ˜‚ Can we take Elon Musk's new chatbot seriously? The chatbot, named โ€œGrokโ€ (pronounced graw-k), is trained on โ€œreal-time accessโ€ to information pulled from X. Haters be warnedโ€”don't use the "Grok" if you can't take a joke.  Read more
  • ๐ŸŒ Leadership in a Fragmenting World - I really enjoy this conversation hosted by Asia Society with Morris Chang of TSMC and Joe Tsai of the Alibaba Group. It's cool to learn that Joe's father was the very first person that Morris met when he first moved to Taiwan. Watch here
  • ๐Ÿ’ป OpenAI DevDay Keynote - The launch of ChatGPT Enterprise, 2M developers, 100M active developers.  Truly impressive considering it's only been one year since launch.  Watch here
  • ๐Ÿ  How WeWork Went From $47B Startup to Bankrupt Penny Stock  What Went Wrong?  Watch WSJ for serious analysis or funny comment by Ronny Chieng's on "The Daily Show". ๐Ÿ˜‚
