Intel’s growth accelerator program Intel Ignite, announced the 10 startups Tuesday chosen to participate in its sixth Tel Aviv cohort.
The program had more than 220 applicants, with 10 chosen to move on to the next round as part of the sixth cohort.
The selected startups work in various tech verticals pursuing innovation in AI, digital health, robotics, sensors, hardware, developer tools, and cyber security.
Programs will consist of a variety of fields including founders’ dynamics, go-to-market strategy, marketing and sales, product development and management, and recruitment, among others.
Founded in 2019, Intel Ignite is a global corporate startup program for early-stage startups designed to manifest innovative ideas into tangible industry-disrupting technologies. The accelerator program has supported 48 startups in Israel thus far as well as 20 in Europe, which have since collectively raised nearly $700 million in funding to date.
