In the early 2000 curious minds met regularly on Monday afternoons in Helsinki at so called “Mobile Mondays” to discuss mobile business use cases. In Berlin it was the latest around “location based services” that were shared at the “GEO Mondays“.

In 2017 the founders of Taival re-started the “Monday” tradition in Helsinki – this time with a highly relevant topic of today: Artificial Intelligence. AI Monday was born.

Since autumn 2018 these #aimonday events also take place in Berlin. This is only natural as a Start-up capital and with 54% of all German AI companies the fourth largest global AI hub.

Following the success of AI Monday Berlin, we also launched a 2nd event in the “Cyber Valley” – the Stuttgart-Tübingen-Karlsruhe region, where AI science and industry come together in a remarkable way. The area has a high number of research and science institutions in the field of artificial intelligence, strong support from the state of Baden-Württemberg and of course full business and industry power – especially in Automotive.

In late summer 2019 we continued the growth by opening doors in the most recent location, Leipzig. The area is commonly known for their strong Media and Automotive industry. But in the recent years the city has become the “German Boomtown” and a strong startup community has been established in various fields, also including AI. Following a successful year 2019, we also continue the event series with 4 gatherings in 2020.

With Corona we are forced to move to an online format. Once this is over we are meeting again person. Stay strong!

We are looking forward to welcome you to one of the next AI Monday Leipzig events – as guest or speaker.



Four crisp presentations incl. Q&A. Some speaker also demo their AI solutions. Followed by drinks and networking.
