Empowering AI entrepreneurs to build successful companies

A full-service studio that provides tailored technical and product support to Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning startups, all in one place.

About the program

We focus on applying tech to product. Thanks in great part to the open-source movement, it's easier than ever to build a technology company. However, AI & ML innovation is still in its nascent phase and very hard to apply in the building of comprehensive solutions and scalable products.

We want to make technology accessible. In line with recent announcements made by Google's CEO Sundar Pichai and Chief Scientist Fei Fei Li, Launchpad is more committed than ever to make new technological advances, like AI and ML, universally accessible and useful to startups globally.

We offer tools and best practices to apply AI to products. With this in mind, Launchpad Studio aims to be a go-to hub for the world’s best AI entrepreneurs by empowering them on their journeys, as they build next-gen products that matter.

Studio services

We start with a "diagnostic" to understand what your startups’ goals and biggest challenges are. Based on our assessment, we provide a customized offering for your AI startup and invite you to work with us at Launchpad Studio in San Francisco.
