Greeting to all innovators and tech entrepreneurs!


As Asia is becoming the world’s AI powerhouse, according to AI Business, RISE.AI, Southeast Asia’s First Corporate AI Accelerator Program, will be launched to drive the AI development in this region through the adoption of corporates.


However, the adoption of AI is time-consuming and costly. Most corporates in SEA region are facing insufficient resources in developing AI technology within the organization, and also have no access to global AI developers.


This is why RISE.AI is designed to link corporates and qualified global AI developers in creating potential synergies that will allow them to survive and remain competitive in the changing global economy.

RISE.AI is looking for 30 best-in-class AI startups from all over the world to Southeast Asia to grab the unprecedented opportunity to collaborate with top corporates in Asia.


Startups will be delivering pilot projects within 9-week boot camp along with dedicated mentorship from veteran corporate innovators & entrepreneurs in Asia and present your project on the Demo Day. Therefore, no matter who you are or where you are from, if you believe that your AI startups are ready to grow internationally, you are invited to the part of RISE.AI!


Furthermore, any corporates who are interested in being part of RISE.AI, please contact us at
