More about the AI startup program

To accelerate applied AI in Swedish business, research and society we know that it is necessary to help the startups. The AI Innovation of Sweden Startup Program is designed to help Swedish AI startups in different ways. The program consists of three stages: Learn - Connect - Accelerate.

Stage 1 - Learn

Stage 1 is open for all startups and focuses on learning and inspiration from the field of AI. The mission of Stage 1 is to educate entrepreneurs and founders in the field of AI. Startups can take part of our educational initiatives to grow their AI-competence and knowledge. Startups are also invited to take part of our open events and workshops held all over Sweden with our regional nodes and together with our local partners, as well as our national activities.

Stage 2 - Connect

The second stage of the Startup program focuses on highlighting Swedish AI startups and connecting them to potential partners and investors through exclusive events and meetups. As a part of the Startup Program Stage 2, startups will also get access to our growing community of AI-startups. 

As a startup in stage 2 you will get access to exclusive events, be invited to the national AI-startup community and highlighted as a Swedish AI-startup on AI Innovation of Swedens startup list.

To be a part of Stage 2 in the AI Innovation of Sweden Startup Program you need to apply and be approved of our evaluation board. The evaluation board will look into your competence within the field of AI and the technology your startup are using to provide your solution/services.
