The shelf-life of technology buzzwords seems to get shorter every year. Biotech, healthtech, information tech—the words and technologies are still in use. But they have lost the zing that makes investor hearts tremble.
Inevitably another term—and technology—have climbed to the top of heap. Deeptech is the now the topic of articles, seminars and investor conferences (more about that later).
Deeptech is a relatively new development. That means startup founders, investors and potential customers are paying attention to what it is and what it can do.
Start at the Very Beginning
Getting clear about what deeptech is andis the first step in making a wise investment.
What is deeptech? Deep Tech companies createthat redefine markets and industry processes. More and more people describe deeptech ventures as startups with a unique and highly protectable platform technology at their core.
What makes deeptech startups different? The business potential of deeptech startups can only be assessed with a deep scrutiny of the underlying technology. That’s difficult because few if any experts exist for a technology that’s being developed. And deeptech commercialization requires more time, capital and investor patience than other startups do.
These questions—and their consequences in business development terms—are just two topics you might discuss at the 2018 Global Capital Summit.
