The 2020 Catalyst Artificial Intelligence (AI) Accelerator at Oxford Brookes University is a launchpad for growing start-ups wanting to use the power of AI. To qualify for entry, the start-ups must be incorporated, owned and managed by either Brookes students, graduates or staff, and ready to trade or ideally having started trading. If you are interested in applying please complete the application form below. Applications are currently open and will close on April 6th at midday.
Over a period of eight weeks starting in June 2020, the start-ups will work intensively on optimising their businesses to attract more sales as well as identifying how to deploy AI in their operations. The start-ups will attend meetings and workshops on Tuesdays and Wednesdays each week.
Prior to the accelerator starting, each start-up will meet with the Catalyst team to create a personalised plan with key project milestones and deliverables so they can start the programme with a formalised set of actions. With the support on offer, the start-ups will learn how to grow into an AI-enhanced viable and sustainable business.
In order to provide support to the start-ups, funding will be released in stages.
* The full amount may vary and will only be awarded to best performing teams based on the quality of their presentation pitch and impact report.
Start-ups participating in Catalyst are highly encouraged to continue using the co-working spaces available for entrepreneurs at the Headington and Wheatley campuses. In these spaces, they will continue to receive support and guidance from mentors and they will be part of a collaborative network of entrepreneurs.
