NVIDIA’s Inception Program for AI Startups Adds 2,000th Member

Less than 18 months after its launch, NVIDIA’s Inception program — which helps accelerate startups pushing the frontiers of AI and data science — has signed up its 2,000th member company. The milestone was reached with Imagry, a Haifa, Israel-based startup using machine learning to embed image recognition capabilities on any device.

NVIDIA made the announcement in Tel Aviv, at our inaugural GPU Technology Conference in Israel, part of a series of GTC events being held this year in Silicon Valley, Beijing, Munich and Taipei, among other locations. It’s an appropriate location for the 2,000th Inception member company. Israel is said to have the highest density of startups of any nation — with an estimated 4,000-5,000 new companies in a nation of 8.5 million people.
