Intel Ignite Launches London Cohort for Deep Tech Startups

Intel Ignite London Cohort

Intel Ignite, the accelerator program for early-stage deep tech startups, has announced the launch of its London cohort. This marks the first time the program has expanded to the UK. Ten startups have been selected to participate in the 12-week program, where they will receive mentorship and guidance on various aspects of their growth journey. The areas covered include product development, technology, marketing and sales, fundraising, and go-to-market strategies. The program will also emphasize co-founder dynamics, founders’ mental health, and diversity and inclusion practices.

The selection process was highly competitive, with over 200 applicants vying for a spot in the program. The 10 chosen startups will have access to a funding pool of $7.6 million provided by external investors, without having to pay any participation fees. These startups represent a diverse range of sectors in deep tech, including generative AI, machine learning, next-gen computing, robotics, and manufacturing.

Here is the full list of companies in the London cohort:

  • Apoha: Sensory intelligence for anchoring machines into physical reality.
  • Circuit Mind: Electronics design assistant for engineering teams.
  • Crypto Quantique: Chip-to-cloud system for managing and securing IoT devices.
  • Fianchetto: Light-speed photonic processors for faster and more sustainable computing.
  • Ivy: Integration of all AI frameworks, hardware, and infrastructure with one line of code.
  • LGN: Edge AI management software for businesses.
  • Lumai: Scalable and ultrafast 3D optical interference processor.
  • Skippr: AI-generated product design.
  • Vaultree: Fully-functional data-in-use encryption.
  • VyperCore: Acceleration and protection of computer-intensive applications through novel microprocessor design.

“With these pioneering startups, Intel Ignite is thrilled to be launching the first cohort in London, which is home to the third-largest market for startups and the number one market outside of the U.S.,” said Tzahi Weisfeld, Intel’s VP and general manager of Intel Ignite.

Intel Ignite was first introduced in 2019 and has since expanded to three more locations worldwide: Munich, Boston, and Tel-Aviv. To date, a total of 148 companies have participated in the accelerator programs, collectively raising $1.7 billion in funding.
