We want to support the development of future Deep Tech Champions in Europe

Artificial Intelligence, Blockchain, Internet of Things, 3D Printing and Biotechnologies. These are just some of the technologies which represent a new wave of innovation known as Deep Tech. Healthcare, finance, agriculture, consumer services… for each segment Deep Tech will be a strong driver of innovation and progress over the next decades.

 

Going back to the original definition of Deep Tech firstly made by Swati Chaturvedi, founder of Propel(x), in July 2015: « create value with solutions to global challenges: climate change, food & resources management, migrations, cyberwarfare… ». At the end of 2017, a report made by BCG (Boston Consulting Group) alongside with Hellotomorrow states that « Deep-tech innovations are defined as disruptive solutions built around unique, protected or hard-to-reproduce technological or scientific advances ». They create value by developing new solutions, not only by disrupting business models. As they are advancing the technological frontier, they face unique challenges. 

Europe has a strong technological knowhow, boosted by powerful research and development institutions. Deep technologies are progressively reaching a level of maturity enabling concrete applications. However, the collaboration from a business standpoint is not efficient yet. These core strengths need to be gathered with a digital and business perspective. This way, the perfect ecosystem to attract talents and deliver value for Deep Tech users, business, entrepreneurs, investors, academics, and politicians, will be then created.

We believe that a business-impulsed initiative, in the form of a « do-tank » can help with Deep Tech related challenges. In early 2018, The Deep.Circle is created with the main goal: gathering selected and high-level entrepreneurs, investors, industry leaders, academics, and politics. Their mission is to support the development of future Deep Tech Champions and initiatives in Europe. Members will have the opportunity to meet regularly and exchange their perspectives.

The first edition will start with the theme « artificial intelligence ». On June 5th in Berlin, Deep.Circle will focus on „Taking responsibility for AI in Europe“.
