Artificial intelligence and blockchain are some of the most transformative and disruptive technologies in the modern world of digital revolution. The technologies increasingly play a central role in a more sustainable and resilient global economy. As major economies race to take the lead in their development and adoption, venture capitalists have also found a way to leverage them to enhance deal sourcing and value creation.It's no longer a secret that key trends in blockchain artificial intelligence will shape equity crowdfunding by the venture capitalist sector. While equity crowdfunding is the practice of raising capital by soliciting small investments from a large number of investors, the practice is increasingly being enhanced by revolutionary technologies.Role of AI in Venture CapitalArtificial intelligence is playing an integral role in the venture capital industry, where firms are increasingly relying on technology to source new deals and investment opportunities. Most importantly, the technology is helping the VCs make more informed investment decisions.The sheer volume of data in the investment world always presents significant challenges to even the most experienced investors. The data and information involved can overwhelm VCs, who must sift through to identify opportunities with tremendous potential for value creation.Artificial intelligence is increasingly helping by allowing VCs to quickly and efficiently analyze vast amounts of data and identify patterns and trends that might not be apparent to human investors. The revolutionary technology enhances the analysis of historical data by identifying patterns that indicate future market trends.Machine learning technology also helps venture capitalists make more objective decisions, unlike in the past when they relied on intuition and personal connections. Upon analyzing vast amounts of data, VCs can remove subjectivity from their decision-making process, leading to more accurate basements.In addition, artificial intelligence helps VCs make better decisions by streamlining the due diligence process. The thorough examination of companies and startups' financials, team and market potential with the help of AI helps VCs save time and resources, therefore focusing on other aspects of the investments.Role of Blockchain in Venture CapitalOn the other hand, Intermediaries' lack of transparency and regulatory complexities have always been some of the biggest headwinds afflicting venture capitalists and hindering equity crowdfunding. Blockchain is increasingly changing as it changes how startups and other established companies raise capital and how investors manage their portfolios.The digital ledger technology enables faster transaction times as there is no need for an intermediary or third party to verify and approve transactions. Consequently, venture capitalists interact directly with the companies they wish to invest in and invest their funds for a portion of the company at the lowest cost possible. The fact that each transaction is certified and recorded on a public ledger ensures they are more secure, and no one can frequently alter them.For the longest time, venture capitalists have invested in startups at an early stage and exit or sell shares once they go public. With blockchain technology, VCs only have to invest in tokens representing a stake in the startup. With the investment, they gain a more direct and liquid way to profit from the success of the businesses.Companies and startups often have to report their progress to venture capitalists manually. The process can be time-consuming and prone to error. With the help of blockchain technology, the use of smart contracts is gaining more prominence, helping venture capitalists automatically track the progress of their investments in real-time. The digital ledger technology ensures VCs have a more accurate picture of how their investments are doing.Bottom LineBlockchain and artificial intelligence technologies are expected to enhance how VCs source deals and discover high-risk reward opportunities. In return, they should lead to faster, safer, transparent, and cost-effective transactions while allowing startups to raise capital and give investors more control of their portfolios.
