On September 1, 2023, in the beautiful evening setting of Darmstadt at Woogs-Cafe, we successfully hosted our first MedAI Roundtable.

Our mission was simple but powerful: unite MedAI startups to identify shared needs and spark innovation. With no formal agenda, startups introduced themselves, sharing their focus and highlight their topics of interests.

The evening buzzed with electric discussions among startup guests. Delectable food, drinks, and ambiance led to inspiring connections.

We are thrilled to report that numerous connections were forged, and discussions about potential collaborations are already underway. In fact, two groups have already begun working on a joint project together, and they’re eager to dive into the details in the coming days!

Thanks to the 22 participants from 10 startups and 2 companies: Multilingo Medical AI, MySympto, Deep LS, PreScriptAI, EinMind, mediEM, KardioIQ, ViSPA, Green Convenience, UnderstandUrself, Eloquest, and Innoplexus. Your enthusiasm was truley inspiring.

And special thanks to our AI startup coach Phillip Travers for designing and organizing the event!

Stay tuned for more MedAI innovation and collaboration updates!

Last Friday, August 30, 2023, marked a major milestone as we successfully hosted an innovative Proof-of-Concept Workshop (PoC) for pioneering AI Startups. This initiative by AI Startup Rising | hessian.AI aimed to empower pre-incorporated AI Startups who participated in our Open Idea Competition or received our Lean AI Startup Funding. The workshop aimed to prepare these startups for the upcoming AI Startup Competition starting on October 12, 2023. Stay tuned for more information!

Our journey began during a previous AI startup competition, where we identified a gap in supporting startups targeting B2B and B2G markets. PoC Projects emerged as a way to break into these markets, but challenges persisted. We addressed key questions about navigating this path pre-incorporation, managing intellectual property, taxation, and gaining customer trust.

The workshop, featuring legal experts, tax consultants, and a successful startup, received positive feedback from 10 participating dynamic startups. Their involvement validated the importance of these topics. Kudos to all participating startups for their valuable insights: MySympto, ArchiPlan, CloudMent, mindwaves, copyrAight, UnderstandUrself, MediEM, Bird Mapper, FLIPoQ, PrescripAI and Phont.

Special thanks to legal expert Tim Steininger, tax consultant Jürgen Jaschke, and Marco Limm from cre[ai]tion Gmbh for sharing your expertise with us and Phillip Travers, our AI Startup Coach, for designing and organizing the workshop.

The workshop’s success inspires us to do more! We’re excited to announce that we’ll host this workshop again during the AI Startup Competition 2023/24.
