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
  • AgrarTech
  • Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning
  • Cleantech & New Energy
  • Cybersecurity
  • Material Science
  • Nanotechnology
  • Internet of Things / Industry 4.0

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.
