As summer heats up here in Silicon Valley, Citi Ventures has deepened our focus on the key trends of 2023: the macro climate, the future of fintech and, of course, generative AI. Between our FinTech Summit in June and our Generative AI Showcase in July, we were proud to convene over 2500 Citi colleagues, clients, corporate partners, investors and entrepreneurs for forward-looking conversations on these and many other critical topics. Stay tuned for more on that in upcoming newsletters!

Read on for our top insights, investments and other highlights from the last few months. We encourage you to forward this newsletter to anyone in your external network who may be interested, and to subscribe for more innovation news via the button above.
