It’s time for the first ever 𝗔𝗜 𝗧𝗲𝗰𝗵 𝗪𝗲𝗲𝗸! Perspectives from research, entrepreneurship, talent and applications will all be covered during four different afternoon events hosted by Amsterdam Data Science in collaboration with ICAI. Do we see you there?
Startups (and scaleups) are an essential part of a healthy Data Science and AI ecosystem. How are the Amsterdam AI startups doing? What does it take to take an idea into a profitable business plan? And what are the expected developments for the AI ecosystem? We cover it all in this afternoon event about AI entrepreneurship.

Vladimir Nedović has 20 years of experience with diverse data-driven technologies and innovations, and 15 years of experience in AI. Currently, he is a co-Lead of ACE AI Lab, a program of ACE Incubator aimed at students who want to launch an AI-based startup. Before the AI Lab, Vladimir was a Technical Director of Rockstart Accelerator’s AI program, in collaboration with JADS University. In 2014, he was the co-founder of AI startup Flavourspace, which provided B2B solutions for personalized food inspiration. His entrepreneurial ambitions date back to 2011, when he was finishing his PhD in AI and involved in a spin-off at University of Amsterdam. Soon after, he founded Synemedia, whose aim remains to discover groundbreaking data-driven concepts worth investing in.
ACE AI Lab: Ensuring AI product-market fit:
Pushing technology products into the market that doesn’t necessarily need them has never been a good idea. In the case of AI, science fiction has transitioned to high expectations from intelligent solutions. Whereas typical startup incubators offer support to existing teams and ideas and bolster their business skills, at ACE AI Lab we take a different approach. Taking well-scoped AI challenges from industry partners, we match them with highly motivated and capable student teams, who will develop the proof-of-concept but also the basis for their own future startup. This has proven to work well in practice, with happy customers and more than 1 in 3 student teams continuing further as a startup.
