Resources and support for every stage of the journey

Our AI startup accelerator is designed to address the unique challenges (growth, finding product market fit, go-to-market strategies, etc), fine-tuned for the specific journey of building an AI-first company.

We offer a variety of resources and support for every stage of the AI startup company journey—from workshops and educational content to access to an ecosystem of industry experts, mentors, corporate partners and investors.

WLDA Ventures is continually updating our program to keep pace with the rapidly growing number of founders starting AI companies and the evolving trends in AI.

Mentors are the backbone of our program and serve as one of the biggest value-adds for cohort startups participating in the program.

The Next Horizon of AI Foundational Models

Large-scale foundation models such as GPT-3 and DALL-E have taken the world of AI by storm. Previous AI tasks—from text categorization to object detection—can now be accomplished with much less curated labeled data. This is huge for many companies building AI solutions using prior technologies.

We’re looking to support a small number of early-stage women-founded startups in fields where artificial intelligence can have a transformative effect—like health care, financial services, climate change, and education—and where AI tools can empower people by helping them be more productive.
