Every wave of technological revolution turns what was once perceived pure magic into daily reality. We live in an era of augmented humanity: man-made technology is being infused with sentiments, interfaces are becoming more personal and machines are becoming more… human. Adieu to the days of one-size-fits-all, hello intelligent-everything. And welcome new challenges.
These are what we believe are the most pressing challenges in deep tech and we are on a mission to partner with seed and early stage startups who have solutions for them. Will it be your startup?
If you have an innovative approach to any of these challenges - we want to hear from you.
