The programme aims to attract disruptive start-ups and scale ups that apply AI with high-growth potential while helping them grow into world-leading companies.
The 20 companies selected will each receive a £7,500 grant. The six-month programme will be delivered online from the University of Edinburgh’s Bayes Centre and Scale Space in London’s White City Innovation District.
The University of Edinburgh is home to the largest centres for computing science and informatics in Europe.
Scale Space brings together Blenheim Chalcot’s venture building expertise, together with world leading universities to create a new community for scaling businesses. The first Scale Space is a joint venture between Blenheim Chalcot and Imperial College London, located on Imperial’s White City Campus, in the heart of West London’s new innovation district.
Mark Sanders, Scale Space Executive Chairman, hailed the move, adding: “Participants in the Post-Covid AI Accelerator will benefit from the combined expertise of the University of Edinburgh and Scale Space.”
