The Ignition program is aimed primarily at AI founding ideas and startups that not only use AI in products or business models, but are driven by the development and application of AI algorithms or methods. To accelerate growth, the Ignition program participants receive not only financial resources for benefits (e.g. for specific consultants, access to AI infrastructure), but also access to the hessian.AI network. In addition to the technical expertise of hessian.AI also mentoring and consulting from business partners are provided. The participants are furthermore supported in the mediation of contacts to owners of proprietary data and to experts, potential customers, cooperation partners and users from the network.

Further information on the application process will be published here soon.
