We select the best and brightest minds in deep tech, sourcing 50 top scientists with strong IP and high Technology Readiness Levels, and pairing them with 20 entrepreneurs who have deep tech experience, a proven B2B track record, and a clear vision for their next startup.
Where innovation meets opportunity
We understand the pivotal role that deep tech plays in shaping a better future for society and the planet. However, we also recognize that bringing deep tech innovations to market can be challenging. That's where we come in.
At DEEP Pioneers, we bring together the best of both worlds - experienced entrepreneurs and visionary scientists - to bring cutting-edge technologies to life. Our mission: build the right founding teams with the resources they need to turn their inventions into thriving businesses. We source disruptive technologies with high a high "technology readiness level" from across Europe, develop the founding team and connect with the rare species of "deep tech proof" investors to fuel growth. The market opportunities for deep tech solutions are immense, and we're here to help you tap into that potential.
There is neither a lack of technologies, nor of market opportunities. The startup ecosystem fails at connecting breakthrough technologies with experienced entrepreneurs and those investors who do not shy away from true deep tech startups. Hence, DEEP pioneers will fill this gap.
Our three-day Bootcamp, held off the grid, is where the magic happens. Founding teams get to know each other, workshop with mentors, and form initial commitments.
The most promising teams are selected to receive grants from our partner VCs and sponsors and receive tailored mentoring to become investment-ready.
