Artificial Intelligence powered Startup Stories


Artificial Intelligence will transform many areas of businesses – and it is likely that you already had an encounter with an artificial intelligence today (Hello Siri!)


In this edition of Startup Stories event, you will meet 2 founders that successfully built a new business that is powered by Artificial Intelligence. Get to know different areas of how Artificial Intelligence and how it can be used as a business case. Let yourself be inspired!

  • Meet David Eberle, CEO and Co-Founder of typewise. With the AI text-prediction engine, you can compose emails, messages and documents more quickly and accurately. Last year, Typewise raised CHF 1.8 million in a crowdfunding campaign.
  • Meet Tanja Koch, CCO and Co-Founder of Amplo. They want to make machine learning easily accessible for automated diagnostics, predictive maintenance or many other data driven insights to all machine manufacturers. The team just closed their first investment round in January 2022.

Both founders will talk about their stories of both success and failures and their personal experiences of building an own business.

This event is co-organized together with the ETH Zurich and will be held digitally.
