Later this month we’ll be showcasing our tech at Hello Tomorrow, the world-leading deep tech summit. But what is Deep Tech?
Deep tech described technologies are heavily based in science and engineering and extremely IP (intellectual property) heavy. Often when people think of the hottest tech start ups, peoples think of software based companies that are “The Uber of X” or the next Facebook. In contrast, deep tech start ups require in depth knowledge of the most cutting edge scientific disciplines and are therefore closely linked to academic research.
Various challenges exist in starting a deep tech company. Even if you leave aside the technological hurdles, securing funding to cover niche technical equipment and an extensive patent portfolio is often problematic. We’re looking forward to Hello Tomorrow because it will provide an opportunity to meet innovators from completely different fields that face similar problems.
