Tehnopol Startup Incubator’s AI accelerator assists in introducing new and robust technology companies based on artificial intelligence to the market.

A specialist training series focused on AI together with mentors and experts who are among the best in the business will help participants complete the development cycle, and the mentors will work each week with the teams. See the mentors at The teams participating in the AI accelerator can also use the co-working space in Science and Business Park Tehnopol.

AI accelerator is open to startup companies and spin-off teams from established companies registered in Estonia and to teams of researchers and students whose ideas and solutions use artificial intelligence.

The accelerator is free of monthly fees and we don’t take any participation options. You only need to have an escalating technological AI-based business idea, an existing prototype or the ability to create one during the accelerator and a motivated team with the necessary skills.

10 teams will be accepted into the new round of the AI ​​accelerator and each team will receive 10,000€ to develop their idea.

The AI accelerator is part of Tehnopol AI Development Programme, designed to help Estonian businesses introduce artificial intelligence (AI) solutions, making them more competitive and keeping the Estonian economy sustainably successful in the future. We do this by launching and funding pilot projects based on AI, organising development marathons, running an accelerator with a six-month development cycle, and sharing all of the knowledge gained during the programme with other businesses.

The AI Development Programme has been created jointly with the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Communications to introduce artificial intelligence technologies into Estonia.
