The catalyst for
deeptech success

Deeptech Labs is a VC fund, accelerator, and the catalyst for deeptech success.

Twice a year, its cohort of startups are embedded in a powerful network of successful entrepreneurs, expert practitioners, leading researchers, and deeptech organisations worldwide.

Having a new technology at the heart of a business isn’t just an extra work stream, it fundamentally changes the nature of the challenge. It’s not just a startup + tech, it’s a technology startup. Cambridge is Europe’s leading technology cluster and has been a leading source of technological understanding and commercialisation as far back as Babbage and Lovelace.

Many technologies fail to be widely deployed due to strategically ill-judged early decisions. Deeptech Labs offers startups access to expert practitioners who have successfully trodden this path.

£350k investment

Twice a year we invest £350k in a small number of deeptech post-Seed startups. Then we work intensively with them in a structured, three-month programme, which ends in a Demo Day.

50+ deeptech leaders

We work with an elite community of leaders who have built and scaled deep technology companies to develop our cohort’s networks.

30 events

Our programme is made up of intimate Fireside Chats, in-depth Workshops, and community Forum Days. Our entrepreneurs and network have numerous opportunities to interact about their business and the challenges they face.
