Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning: Informational Session for BRIIA’s Spring 2018 Accelerator Program

January 23, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Office Space Rental Agency in Walnut Creek, CA

Are you an entrepreneur with an early stage AI/ML company, and are you interested in fast-tracking your company to success? 

Join us for a complimentary in-person informational session about BRIIA’s Spring 2018 Accelerator program.

BRIIA’s 12-week program, based in San Ramon, is designed to assist early stage companies and entrepreneurs quickly get from “prototype to fundability”. Our applied learning approach is not just about knowing, it’s about doing. Participants gain tools and insights through workshops, Thought Catalysts (guest experts) and Office Hours (mentors). BRIIA’s goal is to get each company ready for raising capital and market scalability.

At the end of the 12-week program, Demo Day provides companies the opportunity to show off their progress to investors and community members, and launch into their next stage of success.

Ideal applicant companies have at least two founders and a working prototype, with a passion for creating meaningful solutions that solve real problems.



Bishop Ranch Intelligence Innovation Accelerator(http://briia.io) is San Ramon’s only collaboration community for entrepreneurs and data scientists.  Through our AI/ML accelerator program, coworking community, events calendar, and in collaboration with our mentor network, investors, and the community, we foster entrepreneurship and innovation in the Tri-Valley.
