Strategic financing solutions
We define “DeepTech” as the sector of companies whose product or service offering is based on substantial scientific advances and high-tech engineering that creates real technological innovation and patents / IP. Typical verticals include:
- Advanced Manufacturing / 3D Printing
- Advanced Components
- Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning
- Cleantech & New Energy
- Material Science
- Internet of Things / Industry 4.0
- New Mobility (E-mobility, Autonomous cars)
- Robotics & Drones
- Software / SaaS
- Virtual & Augmented Reality
We understand the challenges these companies often face – substantial R&D expenses, long-term oriented business plan, often hardware related business models, low visibility, unfashionable business models, lacking investor interest – and support founders and managers to find the strategic financing solutions they need to achieve their business and technology vision.
