Venture Forum keynote Elon Musk had a silent room of over 900 people enraptured on his vision of putting a man on Mars by 2025, Cindy Chow from Alibaba introduced their HK$1B fund for Hong Kong startups, and Alejandro Tocigl, whose company MirOculus is named by Singularity University as one of the 10 coolest companies, talked about a blood test that can detect disease and severity before symptoms are even detected.
