Scaling Up Artificial Intelligence Start-Ups


Growing an AI business is hard, internationalising one is even harder. At this event, we will focus on how to scale up an AI company with incredible speakers who will share their experience and secrets. We will also see how Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning can be applied to real business cases and improve the productivity and efficiency levels in various industries.

We’ve started to see an increase of European startups who are connected among themselves. In 2017, Italy registered a 19% growth rate of scale-ups who internationalised outside the country, with a total of 178 companies and $1.3 B raised [ref: Report Tech Scaleup Mindthebridge] but we can certainly do more.

Stefan Zwicky, Director of Swiss Business Hub Italia, will explain how the Swiss Business Hub Italia can help Italian AI companies establishing and growing their businesses in Switzerland. Two founders of AI start-ups will tell us their journeys about internationalising their companies and going from 0 to $10 M in 16 months.

We will also have Mr. Joël Dumoulin, Technology Transfert Officer at Idiap Research Institute, who will reveal some of the projects they are working on and how they apply Artificial Intelligence on real business cases.
