Drafting an email response to a customer inquiry, summarizing a long technical article or as a tool for brainstorming in a team meeting - generative AI for text generation such as ChatGPT is already being used in more than half of German startups (53 percent). Another 11 percent do not yet use such tools, but have already planned to do so, and 21 percent can imagine doing so in the future. These are results from a survey of 203 tech startups commissioned by the digital association Bitkom. "Startups are pioneers in the use of new technologies. Such 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 examine where artificial intelligence can be usefully deployed," says Niklas Veltkamp, member of the Bitkom management board. "We should also make every effort not only to use AI, but also to develop it. Startups are important innovators and first movers in this regard."

Only one in eleven startups (9 percent) does not use generative text AI and also rules this out for the future; 6 percent cannot or will not provide any information on this. In addition, 9 in 10 founders (86 percent) say they can explain well what ChatGPT is. 13 percent know roughly what it is about.
