What we offer


The AI Entrepreneurship Academy, a high-quality qualification program and expert network, is one of the building blocks of AI Startup Rising. It is aimed at founders and those interested in founding a company in the entire process from brainstorming to the scaling phase.

The AI Academy is aimed at two target groups: First, AI experts who do not have entrepreneurial skills, gain the knowledge required for founding a company. In addition, students and young scientists from applied disciplines can acquire basic AI knowledge. This creates synergies and leverages potential for AI innovation, particularly as a result of the convergence of different technologies that arises at the intersection between AI and applied research disciplines.


AI Academy talks take place every 3-4 weeks. See our events page for a full list.

Recordings of previous Academy talks can be found on our YouTube channel.

Master Classes

The Master Classes are offered as a component of the Academy. Master’s students of an AI-relevant course at Hessian universities are given the opportunity to participate in the program.

The program pursues two goals: On the one hand, students with a first technology-based start-up idea receive support in concretization of a business model or use case. Master’s students without a concrete idea are trained and made aware of the potential for implementation of a technology and can acquire basic entrepreneurial skills.

For participation in the program, the master’s students receive a certificate and the possibility to join the network as an alumni to benefit even after the program has ended.

Dates & Deadlines

The Master Classes 2022 are running during the summer semester, starting from May 9.
