It all leads to this – Wayra UK presents: AI & Blockchain Accelerator Demo Day (Cohort 3).
100+ applicants / 9 selected startups / 5 months of intense acceleration.
This 3rd cohort AI & Blockchain Demo Day will see our 9 startups pitch their projects, and for the first time a Wayra demo day will be delivered virtually to a global audience. And with a potentially global outreach we are delighted to soon announce a special guest keynote speaker.
Based at the Bayes Centre, the AI & Blockchain Accelerator is a collaboration between Wayra UK, The University of Edinburgh and DDI (Data-Driven Innovation Initiative). It is also supported by Cisco.
It was Wayra's first programme to be announced by Prime Minister Theresa May at 10 Downing Street and then formally acknowledged by the Scottish Parliament. It is also Wayra’s first programme in partnership with a world-class university.
The Accelerator launched in 2018 with a mission to make the UK and Edinburgh the “go to” place for new AI and or Blockchain businesses with high growth potential. To date, 30 start-ups have been accelerated through the programme, which aims to scale their business through investment, mentoring, business development and by giving them access to the networks of all market-leading partners.
