In the last year, technology, with a strong emphasis on Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Generative AI, has become an indispensable catalyst for growth and transformation across industries. Organizations and institutions have rapidly embraced these innovations, redefining the paradigms of operation and interaction. This swift technological evolution, while continuing its momentum, has significantly disrupted traditional business practices, paving the way for novel services and products: from Chat GPT-4 to Stable Diffusion.
Tech companies in developed countries, although contributing to less than 10% of GDP, command substantial market capitalization and draw considerable attention. This has instigated a wave of tech entrepreneurship initiatives, especially in the realm of AI, across US and Europe, leading to frequent announcements of groundbreaking ventures. Universities are actively contributing to this trend, developing programs that not only focus on entrepreneurship and technology but also delve deep into the applications of AI and Generative AI, thereby attracting a new wave of students keen on pioneering startups.
