How Are We Different

We are different from a typical Accelerator. We understand that AI technology and ideas need time and a lot of support to grow into a real business. We also know startups come to us at varying stages of readiness, each with a unique set of challenges. This is why we focus on AI only and don’t support general startups. This is why we don’t offer cookie-cutter packages; instead, we tailor our help to the needs of each and every project. We expect that upon completing our incubation program, a startup will have at least a MVP, stable team, and established basic company functions. In other words, it will be ready to enter global markets.

Financial Investment

We provide investment up to 500.000 USD for 12 months of incubation program, while helping you reach additional funding beyond that.

AI Brain Concentration & Specialized Networking

We help you access AI related international conferences, organizations and companies, including cooperation with universities. Other startup peers will inspire you to find the best solutions.

AI, Business and Personal Mentoring

From the early stages, your idea will be supported by technology professionals, through counsel and rapid prototyping. Leading Czech and international experts will provide legal, financial, marketing, and HR advice; our health and lifestyle coaches will offer guidance when it comes to your own well-being.

Shared Resources

Manage your business, not office. Incubator can take care of all of your back-office needs. You will gain access to a large number of computational resources and other partner perks (AWS, Google Cloud, and more) as well as our shared hardware.

Individual Approach

No one-fits-all packages. We listen to your needs and create a custom plan addressing the specific challenges your project faces.

 AI Applications On Our Radar

AI can be applied in all human activities. Among the most promising are Health care, Legal, Financial / Accounting, Retail, Marketing, Transportation, Energy, Telco, Agriculture, Diagnostics / Maintenance, Security, HR / Recruitment.
