The catalyst for deeptech success

Deeptech Labs is a VC fund, accelerator, and the catalyst for deeptech success

Twice a year, our cohort of startups are embedded in a powerful network of successful entrepreneurs, expert practitioners, leading researchers, and deeptech organisations worldwide.

Having a new technology at the heart of a business isn’t just an extra work stream, it fundamentally changes the nature of the challenge. It’s not just a startup + tech, it’s a technology startup. Cambridge is Europe’s leading technology cluster for these startups and has been a leading source of technological understanding and commercialisation as far back as Babbage and Lovelace.

Many technologies fail to be widely deployed due to strategically ill-judged early decisions. Deeptech Labs offers startups with these technologies access to expert practitioners who have successfully trodden the path.
