Eligibility for the program

Your team must consist of at least 2 co-founders. We focus on diversity: At least one co-founder should be an AI expert, one co-founder should be responsible for the business area!

The KI-Garage is a program of the Baden-Württemberg Stiftung. We give priority to supporting teams whose place of residence or company headquarters is in Baden-Württemberg. If you live outside of Baden-Württemberg and are looking for opportunities to get started here, we still look forward to hearing from you.

Our program is geared towards teams that have an internationally scalable AI business model and can already demonstrate their first paying customers. If you are not ready yet, the Network Accelerator is better suited for you.

Our program is only designed for startups where artificial intelligence is a main part of their product/service. Teams that only use AI for individual areas (such as marketing) are unfortunately not eligible for us.
