Starmind, the leading technology to expand human ingenuity by applying neuroscientific principles to AI, recently announced that it has been chosen by Microsoft ScaleUp to participate in the prestigious four-month program for technology start-ups.
Starmind joins nine other innovative companies from around the world as they work with experienced coaches at Microsoft and continuing to develop their growth strategy.

Led by a jury of Microsoft Executives and Venture Capitalists (VCs), ScaleUp’s focus is on the technological scaling of start-up solutions, especially with the aid of the Microsoft Azure cloud platform. The program is represented at eight locations worldwide: Bangalore, Beijing, London, Seattle, Shanghai, Sydney, Tel Aviv and Berlin.
“Microsoft has attracted some of the brightest minds in the world to develop products and technology virtually everyone uses. Their highlighting and recognizing our work in AI is a strong token of acknowledgment and one I am proud to share with the entire Starmind team.

This will ultimately add more value for our clients, team, and stakeholders,” said Pascal Kaufmann, Founder of Starmind.
