AI Startup Accelerator Starting August 26th!
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.
