AI Startup Accelerator [deadline for applications]

August 16

The Meta AI Startup Program is a 4-month AI accelerator designed for European startups developing advanced AI solutions with open-source foundation models. Our aim is to accelerate the development and market entry of these projects.

Meta partnered with notable European organizations — Hugging Face, Scaleway, HEC Paris and Station F — to provide a blend of technical guidance and business acumen, ensuring startups not only advance technologically, but also strengthen their market presence.

Hosted at STATION F in Paris, the world’s largest startup campus, the program will accelerate 5 startups in the MVP or product stage, from early October to early February 2025. Applications are open for startups from across the EU, with a selection panel from Meta, Hugging Face, Scaleway and HEC Paris Incubator choosing projects based on their use of open foundation models and integration plans.

Selected startups will benefit from technical mentoring by Meta, access to Hugging Face’s tools and Scaleway’s computing resources to develop services based on open-source AI technology.
