The Program

    BRIIA is a 13-sprint, small-group program that propels AI-powered startups from prototype to fundability. We intensely focus on three main areas – designing a category, acquiring customers and acquiring investors. Our goal is to have companies that complete our program be ready for conversations with investors for their first significant round of capital.
