We are honoured and delighted to have been successful in our application to be part of the 2021 Intel Ignite program. This prestigious global start up program run by the American multinational technology company Intel is highly regarded in the technology and innovation space. After some challenging interviews and pitches, we are proud to have been awarded a place in this program.
Over the next 12 weeks, we look forward to the mentoring, training and networking opportunities presented by Intel and their partner companies. Our team will be travelling to Munich to learn and work with Intel and the other chosen start up companies.
Intel Ignite is a start-up growth program targeting early stage companies that aim to be bold and innovative in order to disrupt their industries. The goal during the 12-week program is to strengthen each company’s performance in all relevant areas through highly tailored content for each portfolio company. Ignite provides start-ups with access to global experts in technology and business, a preferred path to the best investors. Additionally, it provides the knowledge, resources and association that comes with being accepted into one of the most challenging and competitive accelerator programs in the world.
Start-ups that have been part of this program in previous years have reported nothing but success following their part in Intel Ignite. This clearly is ‘the’ start up program to be part of and explains the tough competition to secure a place.
dRISK will use the training, mentoring and networking offered by our friends at Intel to help mature, commercialise and promote our novel work on edge cases and their use in the training, testing and validation of Autonomous Vehicles to make AVs a commercial reality.
