To festively kick-off the new season, ACE AI Lab, an initiative by ACE (Amsterdam Center for Entrepreneurship), will celebrate corporate-startup collaboration at the cutting edge of science & artificial intelligence during the AI & Entrepreneurship event on September 30th.
ACE AI Lab empowers entrepreneurial academics to launch their AI-based startups by connecting them with corporate partners and providing them with real-life use cases. Multidisciplinary academic teams are coached by experienced AI entrepreneurs to build a proof-of-concept for the partner within 12 weeks – a prime example of open innovation in practice that has proven to be successful.
On Friday, September 30th, key players in the entrepreneurial and academic ecosystem will gather at the lively AI startup hub of Startup Village, to learn about the impact the lab has generated since its emergence in 2020. Over the past few years the initiative has worked together with 68 academics with an expertise in AI, has facilitated 17 challenges with corporates such as KraftHeinz, OLVG and ABN AMRO and supported the emergence of 7 AI-based startups.
The success of the lab will be illustrated during the event with a keynote by ACE portfolio company Ellogon, a demo of the current challenge with uniQure and a panel discussion of one of the previous challenges that spun out into a startup in the healthcare industry. Tickets for the event are selling out quickly: make sure to secure your spot via this link.
