We’ve been thrilled at the strong response to our Innovate.AI Global Startup competition, and I’m pleased to announce that we’ve finished selecting the AI finalists for each region. It’s been an exciting process, and I’ve personally enjoyed working across our team and with our VC partners to bring this competition to life.
In North America, we’ve been collaborating with Madrona Venture Group, a VC in our own backyard that has a strong focus on tech being developed in the region. In Europe, we’re working with Notion Capital, a VC with deep experience in enterprise tech. And in Israel, we’re partnering with Vertex Ventures Israel, a VC known for finding entrepreneurs who are tackling fundamental challenges. This competition has been a great way to see the breadth of startup innovation that exists.
