Intel has announced ten more startups for its Intel Ignite accelerator in Europe.

This cohort is the sixth in Europe and will be based in Munich with startups from across Europe. The startups in this batch have a strong focus on artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML), but also span technologies as diverse as fusion power, multi-spectral X-ray cameras, chip-scale photonics, and quantum sensing. 

Over 300 companies applied for the 12 week programme which starts today. The companies have an average of €3.9M in funding and come from seven countries – Germany, Switzerland, Croatia, Ireland, the Netherlands, Spain and France.

The startups in the sixth European cohort are:

  • Deep Detection (Spain) – Next-generation multispectral X-ray cameras for industrial inspection and material of contaminants and composition through deep learning. 
  • Dotphoton (Switzerland) – Lossless raw data image compression for scalable and reliable AI in critical applications. 
  • FononTech (Netherlands) – Impulse printing for electronics via fine-grained patterns in the micro to millimeter range. 
  • Proxima Fusion (Germany) – First generation of fusion power plants using QI stellarators. 
  • Quantum Diamonds (Germany) – Quantum sensor-based technology for semiconductor failure analysis and quality control. 
  • Semron (Germany) – High-density AI inference chip for edge AI applications that reduces energy consumption, without compromising compute power. 

Other software startups in the European Intel Ignite cohort are:

  • Electric SQL (Croatia) – Local-first software platform for building modern apps that feel instant to use, support multi-user collaboration and work offline. 
  • Giskard (France) – Testing interface for AI and ML models that detects vulnerabilities and allows for automation of QA testing. 
  • SuperDuperDB (Germany) – End-to-end framework to build and deploy AI applications on top of the data layer. 
  • Zerve (Ireland) – Coding environment platform for data science, AI development and visual data exploration with production-ready output. 

“We believe the startups and founders in this new cohort have the opportunity and the potential to change the world,” said Markus Bohl, managing director, Intel Ignite Europe. “These entrepreneurs could shape the next innovations in AI, the way the devices we use every day operate, and the future of energy. As part of Intel Ignite, our role is to help them to scale those world-changing technologies faster, build better teams to build better companies faster. This includes supporting them to hone and relay their unique narrative more effectively, find product-market fit faster, and raise more funding at higher valuations, faster.”

“Because it includes startups from several different countries, our European program is a microcosm of the global startup ecosystem and a prime example of how we put our goals into action to help mold healthy founders, successful companies and create a community in each of our cohort locations,” said Tzahi (Zack) Weisfeld, Intel vice president and general manager of Intel Ignite.

The Intel Ignite accelerator program for startups has seen 148 companies participate to date globally, in its programs in Europe, Israel and the US with the latest opening in London. UK.
