InstaDeep partner up with Novation City for AI Garage acceleration program 



As part of InstaDeep’s ongoing involvement in the Tunisian AI ecosystem to empower emerging talent, the company is pleased to confirm it has joined the Novation City Acceleration Program “AI Garage“, co-designed in partnership with EY Tunisia.

AI Garage is a 9-month tailored accelerator programme designed to support individuals and start-ups in building the new generation of solutions where Artificial Intelligence is the key component. The programme comprises two pillars: the three-month Challenge business and technical training track; and the follow-on, six-month Boost intensive technical and business support track.

AI Garage gives participants access to a wide range of experienced advisors and coaches with AI expertise who will help co-create customised plans to overcome any challenges and obstacles (for example, collecting real data, or validating and interpreting AI models). All this, whilst also being inducted into the AI network of start-ups, organizations, companies and public institutions, and fostering participation in international AI events. 

As part of the partnership, InstaDeep’s AI experts will mentor and coach the participants, and provide guidance for the technical and AI side of their projects. InstaDeep will also provide a jury member for project evaluations. And, significantly, InstaDeep will give the AI Garage participants access to an NVIDIA A100 DGX supercomputer as part of the company’s “Compute Power Support” programme, plus related technical support.
