The AI Summit New York

Accelerator Hub

Shining a light on the possibilities of applied AI.

Expect a Shark Tank-esque pitching experience! In Round One, 30 start-ups will have three minutes each to share their elevator pitches. In Round Two, 5 of the best will face a 10-minute grilling from our judges – with each judge sharing constructive feedback before the winner is chosen.

Each of the start-ups participating has access to an intensive full-day mentoring program and in-depth Q&A sessions to help them gain more perspective, identify pain points, and learn from experienced entrepreneurs to increase their probability of success in the competition!

If you are seeking opportunities to get funded, educated, and connected, this is a competition for you.
