The KI Garage Network Accelerator is an offer of the KI Garage based in Heidelberg. The KI Garage project is funded by the Baden-Württemberg Stiftung. The Network Accelerator is a 10-week program where AI startups are supported in defining their target market and developing a first AI-based product. The teams are supported by experienced business and AI coaches and have weekly workshops.
The kickoff on October 21, 2022 in Heidelberg was mainly about getting to know each other. The teams and the coaches introduced themselves to each other and had a first joint workshop on the Lean Canvas. The event ended with a 90s party on a party boat on the Neckar river. After partying, the first virtual workshop will start on October 26.
The University of Stuttgart is represented twice in the program. With Semanux, an AI startup is participating in the program. Marcel Werle is participating as a business coach and will support an AI startup over the next 10 weeks.
