When the words deep tech and the University of Cambridge end up in the same sentence, chances are there’s going to be a pretty good show. And as it would appear, newly launched Deeptech Labs has been fine-tuning the orchestra.
Based in, you might have already guessed, Cambridge, Deeptech Labs is a newly launched post-seed accelerator that seeks to position post-seed stage deeptech startups from across the UK and Europe before leading deeptech investors (I’m looking at you Amadeus). Each startup selected to participate in the programme receives a £350,000 investment and has the opportunity to present at a Demo Day.
Backed by Arm, Cambridge Innovation Capital, Ewan Kirk, Martlet Capital, and the University of Cambridge, the three-month development programme includes weekly fireside chats and expert panels, with access to over 50 deep tech leaders including the Founders and/or Chief Executives of Arm, CSR, Imagination Technologies, Analysis, Active Hotels, Arieso, Blinkx, Cloudamize, Focal Point, Riverlane, and Ubisense. To name a few.
Deeptech Labs’ first demo day kicks off tomorrow, and its second cohort commences in September of this year.
“This ambitious new 13-week seed to Series A program is designed to enable deeptech startups to leverage the best minds in this space,” comments Deeptech Labs CEO Miles Kirby. “With Deeptech Labs backed by the UK’s most experienced and successful technology, research, investment, and R&D organisations, together we can help to facilitate this goal.”
