Earlier this week, we held Demo Day for the Vercel AI Accelerator program. 28 talented AI teams showed off the impressive demos they built over the 6 weeks of the program, in 3 minutes each.

Watch the demo day recording.

Summary of the program

We announced the Vercel AI Accelerator back in June, got over 1500 applications and only accepted 40 teams, about 2.5% of all applications. These 40 teams have been going through our 6 week accelerator, building new products and features, attending events like a kickoff meetup in San Francisco, tuning into over 15 fireside chats with AI experts and VCs and leaving weekly updates in our Discord. Some teams have added hundreds of thousands of users over the accelerator while others built and launched an entire MVP in a matter of a few weeks.

Out of the 40 teams in our accelerator, we picked the top 28 teams and those are the ones that pitched their amazing AI startups on Demo Day. We then picked 3 winning teams to each receive $120,000 of credits from our AI platform partners.

In addition to these teams, we also had several top investors, our amazing AI partners from the accelerator, the Vercel engineering team, and our four talented judges present during demo day. Our 4 judges were Nat Friedman (Investor & former CEO of GitHub), Lin Qiao (CEO of, former lead of Pytorch), Guillermo Rauch (CEO of Vercel), and Shyamal Anadkat (Member of GTM at OpenAI).
