Intel® Ignite was featured in Startups Magazine for making a meaningful impact on innovation. The article outlines our program’s core mission: to accelerate a global deep tech ecosystem by bringing together a diverse network of early-stage startup founders, mentors, domain experts, and investors.
As highlighted in the article, Ofer Shayo, Managing Director of Intel Ignite London, dubs Intel Ignite “the bridge between seed and A round.” To apply, startups must demonstrate significant potential with a minimum of $1 million in seed funding, an experienced founding team, and substantial intellectual property. Notably, it’s not just the tech synergy with Intel that counts; the program equally values the “coachability” of founders.
Once you’re in, you’re part of a lifetime journey, not just a 12-week stint.
Intel Ignite’s global footprint is expanding. Current hubs include Tel-Aviv, Munich, Boston, and the newly added London—a hub for deep tech. Despite market volatility, over 800 startups applied for the recent cohorts, and the program has even rolled out its first-ever customer advisory board, comprising CTOs and CIOs from leading companies.
