Fabian Westerheide’s analysis of the German AI landscape: see the full post.
  • Berlin is the AI capital of the country. Even though Munich is trying to keep up, almost everything is happening in Berlin;
  • There are a few specialized investors and accelerator programs for startups focusing on AI applications, which nurture the ecosystem and foster the creation of AI companies;
  • Germany is a good place to build an AI startup: engineers and data experts are much more affordable with respect to other hubs (and usually the quality is high), cost of living and administrative costs are limited, and there is already a generation of second-time tech entrepreneurs.
