Wonder what the world will look like in 50 years? Seth Bannon has a vision for at least the next 10. The founder of venture capital firm Fifty Years, Bannon believes it’s possible to make money while also doing good. That’s why he’s backing ventures that aim to solve the world’s most pressing issues. Areas like space technology and synthetic biology are exploding, and Bannon thinks these industries will transform society within the next decade. Bannon spoke to Real Vision’s Maggie Lake at the iConnections conference in Miami, where they discussed why venture capital has lost its way and how he’s getting it back on track.
