What is DeepTech Alliance?
DeepTech Alliance is a collaboration between deep tech startup incubators associated with leading European technical universities. Through the collaboration we provide startups and scaleups from our ecosystems with market access and funding opportunities on an international level.
Short about DeepTech Alliance
We believe science based deep tech startups can provide tomorrow’s solutions for today’s big challenges and we believe that Europe can become the cradle of the next generation of world class deep tech ventures.
The deep tech journey is complex, long and costly it holds high potential but cannot be made successfully alone. We believe a strong European deep tech ecosystem is necessary for novel deep tech based solutions to fulfill their potential. DeepTech Alliance contributes to such an ecosystem by connecting European deep tech startups with corporates and investors to ensure that high potential European deep tech based solutions are matched with the capital and market opportunities they need to scale internationally.
Each year we assess +6500 startups in the European deep tech startup ecosystem across our member hubs who work actively with +800 of these startups in their local programs. We hand-pick the best of those startups for our joint DeepTech Alliance programs through which we match them with investors and corporate partners internationally.
