In a major announcement at its developer conference, MongoDB has launched the MongoDB AI Innovators Program.
This groundbreaking initiative aims to expedite the adoption of generative AI technology by offering organizations access to MongoDB Atlas credits, partnership opportunities within the MongoDB Partner Ecosystem, and collaborative go-to-market activities.
With a focus on accelerating innovation and time to market, the program comprises two distinct tracks: AI Startups for early-stage ventures and AI Amplify for more established companies. By joining this program, participants gain exclusive access to a vibrant community of founders, developers, and MongoDB experts, creating an environment conducive to the rapid development of AI-powered solutions.

The rise of generative AI is reshaping technology across various domains, transforming everything from developer tools to end-user experiences. In today’s fast-paced world of innovation, organizations of all sizes, including startups and established enterprises, are keen to harness the potential of generative AI.
They aspire to revolutionize their business operations, pioneer novel ways of conducting business, and disrupt entire industries. However, integrating generative AI into existing applications presents significant challenges. It often entails the need to bolt on additional technology or develop entirely new applications from scratch, both of which are time-consuming, expensive, and require specialized expertise.
Consequently, many organizations find it difficult to identify the optimal path forward, risking lagging behind their competitors. These organizations yearn for a clear roadmap to innovation in generative AI. They seek opportunities to collaborate with established technology leaders, access cutting-edge tooling, engage subject matter experts, and expedite the deployment of their AI-powered applications.
The MongoDB AI Innovators Program addresses these pressing needs, empowering organizations to overcome barriers and embrace generative AI with confidence. The program offers an array of benefits and collaborative initiatives designed to fuel success:
Expanded MongoDB Atlas credits
The AI Startup track of the MongoDB AI Innovators Program provides eligible organizations with up to $25,000 in credits for MongoDB Atlas. As the leading multi-cloud developer data platform, MongoDB Atlas offers unparalleled support for building data-driven applications. With advanced capabilities for working with large-language model (LLM) embeddings and seamless integration with LLM tools and providers like AWS, Google Cloud, and Microsoft Azure, organizations can harness the power of MongoDB Atlas to reimagine end-user experiences. Since 2019,
MongoDB has already provided over $25 million in credits to more than 8,000 startups, facilitating rapid application prototyping and production with MongoDB Atlas. With expanded access to credits, startups can overcome technological obstacles and transform their ideas into AI-powered solutions faster and at a reduced cost.
Startups entering the program through MongoDB Partners, including AWS, Google Cloud, and Microsoft Azure, also gain access to these expanded credits and can even explore collaboration opportunities with MongoDB Ventures for early-stage funding.
Amplified visibility and accelerated time to market
The AI Amplify track, open to organizations of various sizes and business models, offers a pathway to increased visibility and accelerated time to market. Submissions by participants in this track receive expedited evaluation by MongoDB experts and are considered for strategic partnerships and joint go-to-market initiatives. This track empowers companies to gain greater exposure for their projects and access new markets. MongoDB’s technical experts are readily available to provide solutions architecture support and assist in identifying compelling use cases for co-marketing opportunities.
Access to MongoDB Partners and solutions
The MongoDB Partner Ecosystem, consisting of over 1,000 organizations ranging from Databricks to BigID to Accenture, is a valuable resource for MongoDB customers. MongoDB has the distinction of being the only independent software vendor (ISV) featured in the startup programs of all three major cloud providers. Esteemed companies like Forbes, Toyota, and Powerledger have already leveraged MongoDB’s industry solutions and technology integrations through partnerships within this ecosystem.
By participating in the MongoDB AI Innovators Program, organizations gain prioritized access to MongoDB Partner opportunities. Eligible organizations can be fast-tracked to join the MongoDB Partner Ecosystem, enabling them to build seamless and interoperable integrations, collaborate on cutting-edge solutions, or showcase their expertise and certified skills in delivering AI-powered services. With a shared focus on go-to-market strategies, this collaboration between MongoDB and its partners facilitates the deployment of AI solutions to both existing and untapped user bases.
