Calejo has been selected to be on the quality list AI Landscape of Sweden. The list, which is part of a larger survey within the EU, is intended to serve as a prestigious stamp of quality for important European startups in AI.
The Swedish survey is part of an ongoing European initiative to create a European landscape with AI companies in each EU country and the ambition of the Swedish project group is that the Swedish startup companies should be highly represented on this map.
Quality stamp The purpose of the list is to support the growth of AI companies. In a complex area, the list should help guide and give an important signal to innovation ecosystems, investors, authorities and academia that the listed companies are quality-stamped by a highly qualified AI council with representatives from universities, authorities and companies.
-The map serves as a seal of quality for qualified startups, says Stina Lantz, program manager at Ignite Sweden, a national program part of SISP - Swedish Incubators and Science Parks.
In-depth mapping The project is led by AI Sweden, Ignite Sweden and RISE, who have spent a long time looking for Sweden's best startup companies in AI and which they believe will accelerate and contribute to the use of AI applications in the country.
The map has since been approved by an evaluation committee with representatives of investors, large companies, academia, start-ups and incubators.
- We believe that start-up companies will make a big difference in accelerating the Swedish AI ecosystem through this survey. Being present on the map will serve as a guide for stakeholders in the private and public sector who want to collaborate with these AI companies, says Katarina Fégeant, project manager at AI Innovation of Sweden.
Joint European initiative The listing is part of an ongoing European initiative to make a qualitative survey of startup companies within each country. Sweden is currently discussing with Germany to create a joint list for both Swedish and German AI companies as early as 2021. In the long run, the idea is to create a common list for the whole of the EU
