“Start-ups are pioneers in the use of new technologies. Such a rapid and widespread use of generative AI by founders should be a signal to the entire economy: All companies – including small craft businesses and the self-employed – should check where artificial intelligence can be used sensibly,” comments Niklas Veltkamp from the Bitkom management the poll results.

“We should also make every effort not only to use AI but also to develop it. Start-ups are important innovators and first movers.”
