In this episode, our Europe 2023 Roadshow, landed in Berlin, where had the pleasure of spending time with Robin Rohm, a leader in the world of Federated Learning, a novel and fast growing technology, which helps solve the problem of securely analysing data across boundaries and regulated industries.
He took a bit of time out from his Rocketship… Apheris who are early market leaders in this “machine learning on steriods” to talk with us in mid February, on the latest episode of FUNDstars and FOUNDstars.
Robin is a very straight talking and insightful guy, who speaks to us pre the latest bomb to go off in the Tech scene this year, namely the “SVBOMB”.
Robin gives some gems for Founders and VCs on:
===> Scaling into a world that is becoming wiser to Machine Learning
===> Pharma, Healthcare & Manufacturing (especially Semiconductor) appear to be the early movers adopting the Federated learning to solve these data problems at scale, across companies and industries
===> We naturally talk about Generative AI (as everyone is…) and how Apheris fits in the next AI generation
===> How he raised a big VC round in a few weeks in early 2022.. oh how those were the days!
===> Apheris’s hyperfocus on Capital Efficiency – The buzzword of 2023.. to move in line with what VCs want
===> Lastly, the Berlin scene – which remains cool and “Shoreditchy”.
Robin is a top top man, a top founder, a top dad and top clubber. We loved Robin’s admission that he often goes clubbing at 6am at the weekend in Berlin, all fresh faced, after a good night’s sleep and smoothie’d up, to enjoy his love of music and dancing.. Brilliant !
Next up – we’re off to Stockholm to speak to the king of Swedish Tech.. King Konrad Bergstrom, the founder of Tesla of the Seas, X Shore
