About (istari artificial intelligence) is a data intelligence company in the start-up phase. Our goal is to provide web-based company and market information in real time. The web is full of useful information about companies, but only a fraction of this information can be found in traditional company databases. We have developed web AI, an artificial intelligence-based tool that analyses and evaluates millions of company websites at a high frequency. From market analysis and lead generation to investment opportunities, webAI offers the necessary information for all use cases. Our customer base ranges from governments and public authorities to companies from the private sector such as consulting firms and the financial industry.

Students, scientists, and founders in Baden-Württemberg are engaged in the technologies and possible applications of artificial intelligence. The KI Garage helps them turn ideas into reality, develop research results into products and services, and found start-ups with promising business models. We want to help people take advantage of opportunities, understand the potential risks, and shape the future together.



The MCEI Startup Lounge is your place to get inspired to create something new and to meet and mingle with the Mannheim Startup Ecosystem. Meet startups and creative minds to discuss great ideas in a laid-back atmosphere. Each Startup Lounge features an inspirational talk by a (usually early-stage) venture to get the discussion going. We usually also have some budget to cover drinks (provided by either by MCEI or one of our co-feature partners). Join us if you are into startups and want to expand your network in the Rhine-Neckar Metropolitan Region and live the entrepreneurial spirit.

Due to the ongoing situation Startup Lounges will be held online for now. But no problem. You can join us from anywhere!
