WIForum AI Startup AcceleratorGenerative AI will be part of any solution in any industry.
If not in the product, at least in the way you get there.
And in the way you work in a next gen accelerator.

AI Startup Accelerator Starting August 26th!

UPDATE

Batch 10 is a completely overhauled Accelerator Program. Batch No.1, started 2014 in San Francisco and focused on helping startups get their MVP done and bring it to market, Batch No.6 was the first in Europe, Zürich. Batch No.6 was also the first to emphasize on Disruptive Innovation in top of entrepreneurship and MVP building.

With Generative AI entering the tech world and developing an enormous gravitational force, we decided to redo the entire program. Of course also in the AI Accelerator we will continue working with our startups on true entrepreneurship, creating a robust vision, MVP building, go-to-market and ensuring funding at the end of the program. But one thing is changing with Generative-AI: everything gets much faster, much more efficient. What took a week in the past can now be done in an hour – and that includes every facet of your work. 

Our accelerator was once described as the “West-Point for Entrepreneurs” that is the only thing that did not change. From the 8 billion people on earth we have only a few thousand really successful entrepreneurs and you should be one of them.

AI Accelerator Life

Everyday startup life with Generative-AI

As part of the accelerator program you not only learn how AI can improve your envisioned solution, you will use it every single day when you do your research, plan your marketing, create your campaigns, do your business plan, your cashflow plan, your product roadmap, your product strategy, your product development, your disruptive business plan and so forth. Moreover, you will literally design your operation and business with Generative-AI. Only when you eat your own dogfood – you can imagine what your customers could do with your application.

You will be the first startup-generation capable of rebuilding everything software from office tools to ERP systems.
YOU and your generation will change the entire trillion $ software industry 

Welcome to a new world, making the universe a better place.

Background:
the WIForum Founders worked the last 2 years on an amazing AI transformation plan, moving an innovation management platform from a conventional software to an AI-Native application. Driven by 128 highly specialized PROMPTS, the system interacts with Open AI GPT-4-Turbo today. The experience, advances and failures are shared as part of the newly designed WIForum AI Accelerator.
