Our story

AI+MUNICH Connects the Munich Innovation Ecosystem to Develop a Responsible and Sustainable Use of AI

Responsible AI made in Bavaria

AI+MUNICH is funded by German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action (BMWK) and the EXIST funding program, to promote startups in the field of AI to "support not only concrete startup enterprises but above all the networking of universities and research institutions with existing AI companies and the business world at large in selected regions.” AI+MUNICH has received 5.9 million euros.

Munich Innovation Ecosystem GmbH is the project lead, promoting an AI ecosystem in the greater Munich area as an ecosystem integrator, with partners TUM Venture Labs, UnternehmerTUM, Strascheg Center for Entrepreneurship gGmbH and the Hochschule München University of Applied Sciences with MUC.DAI.

The partner universities provide teaching and accelerator formats to increase the research transfer of students and postgraduates that want to set up companies in deep tech. We support rising talent to develop technology for positive impact, employing innovative business models that contribute to transformations on a systemic level.

Selected startup projects are accompanied by deep-tech experts in a sprint process and supported in their development to prime ideas for collaboration with cross-sectorial partners in Munich through the MUNICH INNOVATION ECOSYSTEM.
