A novel acceleration model for AI innovation and social impact

Who Is It For

With the pan-Arab region in scope, Al Venture Labs' accelerator seeks mature, pre-Series A (post-seed) Al startups in the expansion phase, and that are on a mission to innovate in - or disrupt - specific industries, or that are even developing new technologies within the realm of Al science itself. The accelerator's goal is to support such startups in their growth through a unique, highly efficient approach.

Rationale and M.O.

We never believed in a one-size-fits-all acceleration process. We find traditional models to be ineffective, or sub-optimal at best. Armed with this mindset and a peerless network of mentors, industry veterans and staff/resource pool, we were able to develop and successfully implement a unique approach that was tried and tested successfully with multiple cohorts.
Our process begins with assessing the individual needs of qualified startups. A tailored acceleration plan is then put in place, and includes access to technology, markets, and development professional services and hands-on assistance by our dedicated teams.

Modus Operandi

For every startup we admit, a tailored acceleration plan is put in place, and it includes access to technology, markets, hands-on assistance and development services by our dedicated teams
