Funding program of HM and SCE for future entrepreneurs



AI+MUNICH is a deep-tech model project to promote AI startups in the Munich region and throughout Bavaria, supported and funded by the BMWK. In addition to the SCE, the project is driven by the two Munich universities HM and TUM with the associated startup center UnternehmerTUM and the ecosystem integrator MUC SUMMIT. The goal is to establish the Munich region as a national and international AI startup beacon. We place special emphasis on the positive social impact of the AI projects in order to positively anchor the future technology AI in society.
