At GTC Europe 2018, NVIDIA® will host a competition to find the best AI startup in Europe. Last year, Gamaya, a 20-person startup from Switzerland who helps farmers improve their productivity and sustainability, won the Inception Awards and the DGX Station™ AI supercomputer.
To be eligible, startups must be using AI/deep learning, have been founded no earlier than 2015, and have raised no more than $5 million in funding.
Selected startups will be invited to the first round of the competition, held between 25th-29th June. Here they will pitch live to an audience of international VCs and industry executives for a place in the final. Ten startups will proceed from this round and pitch again live at GTC Europe, where the winner will be announced. NVIDIA® CEO and Founder Jensen Huang will present the winner with their prizes – an NVIDIA® DGX Station™ and $100,000.
Finalists will be selected based on a range of criteria including their innovative application of AI and commercial potential. Applications for the Inception Awards closes on 25th May 2018.
