Amsterdam-based Hyperion Lab is starting its second run with nine new startups working in the field of green Artificial Intelligence and High-Performance Computing (HPC). The lab is a collaboration of Amsterdam’s EscherCloud and global hardware manufacturer NVIDIA to support the communities working in AI and HPC.
‘From fashion to proptech and edtech’
With this second batch, Hyperion Lab continues its mission to provide support for startups to expand their talent within the Netherlands and access more funding from its investor network. “We have another amazing batch of startups joining us from fashion and proptech to edtech. The EscherCloud team looks forward to continuing to help both our alumni and this new batch with their growth plans”, says Sana Khareghani, CSO at EscherCloud.
“The Showcase Program is a great opportunity for the community to come together and develop the next generation of AI innovations. The mission to support these promising companies and build out the AI ecosystem on the foundations of Amsterdam’s excellent science base and inspiring startup climate is close to our hearts.”
Each participating startup is automatically a member of the NVIDIA Inception Program, which provides access to NVIDIA’s technology, deep learning training and expert sessions with technology and business mentors.
