AI Startup Battle


If your startup is leveraging Artificial Intelligence in its product(s) or service(s), then this is your chance to pitch and win the 6th edition of PreSeries’ AI Startup Battle.

What makes this competition so special?

Well, it is the absence of human involvement in selecting the winner. Indeed, an entire human jury is no longer needed thanks to PreSeries' own A.I. The voice-controlled A.I. will communicate with the contenders live on-stage and generate scores in order to rank the startups and choose the winner.
The startups selected to compete will be able to pitch on stage, make connections at PAPIs Connect, and get unique exposure among a highly distinguished audience attending Latin America's 1st conference on real-world Machine Learning applications. All selected contenders will receive 2 free tickets to the conference as well as an exhibition booth worth R$ 10,000 for the entire duration of the event (2 days). The winner of the battle will be analyzed and taken into consideration by the Wayra Academy, and if the startup passes Wayra's selection, the winning company may be invited to Telefónica Open Future_'s acceleration initiatives and services, including: training, coaching, a global network of talent, as well as the opportunity to reach many Telefonica enterprises in Brazil, Latin America and abroad.
