7 Startups Across North America To Join The Second Cohort Of The Intuit Prosperity Accelerator: AI

Intuit and Credit Karma, along with Highline Beta, a venture studio and venture capital firm, today announced the second cohort of theIntuit Prosperity AcceleratorTM: AI. This announcement follows the recent launch of Intuit Ventures, further evolving the company’s strategy to drive future innovations by supporting early to mid-stage startups.

The second cohort is comprised of seven early-stage startups from top technology hubs including San Francisco, New York, Toronto and Montreal. These companies were selected based on their ability to leverage artificial intelligence (AI) to create solutions that help consumers and small businesses overcome financial challenges. Like the startups from the inaugural program in 2020, these companies share Intuit’s value of being mission-driven. Additionally, they focus on customer obsession to deliver innovative products, ideas, and results.

In an effort to fuel their growth and spur industry innovation, Intuit will partner with the cohort over a five-month period. We will coach them, provide product and technology expertise and connect them to Intuit’s existing consumer and small business customers.
