For Slalom Ventures, the launch of its new program “Venture For Good” is all about creating “win-win” opportunities for startups and enterprises.
Slalom is now accepting applications for its first cohort, which will focus specifically on helping Artificial intelligence (AI) startups.
Fully funded by Slalom Ventures, the non-dilutive impact accelerator is open to startups across the globe that are early-stage (no more than $500k raised), pre-revenue, or nonprofits using AI. Those selected startups will be paired with Slalom consultants and advisors, be it helping with go-to-market strategies or connecting with enterprise customers.
The Slalom Ventures’ team told Hypepotamus that the goal is to run two cohorts each year. While AI is the focus of the first cohort, Slalom will have other tech verticals for later accelerator rotations.
The plan is to have the Slalom Atlanta office be well represented in the AI For Good accelerator in order to connect startups with Slalom team members and their local enterprise clients.
