This cohort features a diverse group of startups spanning cross discipline technologies for developing, deploying and utilizing AI and generative AI across industries, including healthcare and life sciences and to combat the spread of misinformation. This cohort is also focused on privacy, trust and compliance and data management.

From an applicant pool of more than 250 companies, 10 startups were selected to participate in the 12-week program. The companies in this cohort have an average of $6.4M in funding.

The ten startups in this Tel-Aviv cohort are:

“We’ve witnessed the rise of AI related funding in our deal flow process for this cohort – with a 50% increase in startups touting AI as their focus domain. This reflects the funding environment and traction companies are getting from investors. Namely, we see startups developing AI related infrastructure and vertical dedicated AI infrastructure, alongside applications” said Alon Leibovich, Managing Director, Intel Ignite Tel-Aviv. “Q1 24′ demonstrated another strong performance from the Intel Ignite Tel-Aviv portfolio with roughly $300M in exits and we have reasons to believe Q2 will deliver strong results as well.”
