AI Accelerator

Welcome to the University of Edinburgh’s AI Accelerator!

The AI Accelerator is a six-month business development programme designed to nurture AI-driven scale-ups, facilitating transformative change across various sectors. From AgriTech to FinTech, our goal is to leverage AI technology to introduce efficiencies, forge new propositions, and disrupt markets. Our mission is dedicated to using AI for a positive global impact, aiming to save lives and protect the planet.
