Fuel is Built for a Specific Type of Startup
We’re looking for innovators ready to work with an enterprise customer.
Fuel is an industry agnostic accelerator with a focus on artificial intelligence and machine learning.
This focus encompasses tech from machine vision, deep learning, reinforcement learning, natural language processing, and other disciplines to create transformative solutions like chatbots, image recognition, optimal pricing, automated insight discovery, and many others.
While we are industry agnostic, we are looking for startups focused around consumer packaged goods, supply chain, human resources, advertising and marketing, AgTech, business process automation and productivity, as well as technologies that are direct enablers of these. In short, we are looking toward any area where these technologies facilitate exponential gains for our enterprise partners.
What makes Fuel different?
Collaboration Not Competition
We are building out this program to be one that focuses on collaboration: between both startup entrepreneurs and enterprise partners. We want to build a community, so we will not take on startups that are in direct competition and we are not running the program as a competition.
Tangible Business Growth
We expect you to come out of this program having made clear, tangible strides. Some smaller outcomes include feedback sessions, training, pilots and demos with enterprise mentors. But, our bigger goal is for you to leave with access to sales opportunities and commercial agreements that translate to revenue growth.
No Equity Exchange
We do not take any equity for this program because the expectation is that this will be a mutually valuable exchange between startups and their enterprise mentors through deep learning and connections. We simply ask for your time and commitment to make this program worthwhile for all involved.
