What we do

Merantix, Europe's top AI platform, has been incubating AI-first startups across various industries since 2016. Our 180+ member team is supported by global investors like Softbank. To foster Europe's largest AI ecosystem, we've launched two initiatives: AI Campus, a Berlin co-working space hosting 80+ AI/ML teams from startups to corporates; and Merantix Momentum, an AI services company with 60+ engineers, executing AI projects and pushing innovation in various AI domains. Together, we strive to transform cutting-edge AI research into valuable products.

Over the past seven years, we have further strengthened and developed our expertise in building and scaling impactful deep tech startups, and our unique positioning attracts the best talent and AI ideas. With the current advancements in AI through the democratization of powerful foundation models, we see many amazing founders tackling the most crucial challenges of our time.

As we co-invest with top-tier VCs in Europe, our network partners are excited about our new positioning as they can rely on our AI expertise for technical due diligence of deep-tech startups. Thus, receiving investment from Merantix ought to be regarded as the “AI stamp of approval” which will be a strong signal for growth investors. The startups we invest in will also benefit significantly from being part of our AI ecosystem, which comes with a host of perks.
