Since 2005 we have built a broad portfolio of startups in Deep Technologies including Nanotech, AgriTech, Off Shore industry solutions, and Mobility. Since then we successfully supported 200+ Deep Tech startups developing everything from high-tech scootmobiles to inkless printers, that most of all solve real-life problems and make an impact in the world. 

The Deep Tech Validation Lab is still on and the application remains open. However, due to safety concerns relating to COVID-19, we will reschedule and/or host sessions online (e.g. selection day). We put the health and safety of you, our startups, network and people first. We will keep you informed.
