Deep Tech. Nearly all startups/step-ups are somehow technological, many of them are hi-tech, but some are “deeper” tech than others…
The generic term “Deep Tech” is overused for technologies that include AI, AIoT, robotics, DLT/blockchain, electronics, high-end material science, biotechnology, or quantum computing.
Deep Tech, as a buzzword, is often used to get the attention of potential investors. However, any savvy VC or PE investor knows they have to dig deeper to separate hyped projects from commercially viable projects.
The selection of the right candidates will determine the success – just it’s a bit more tricky.
We reach the best results when assessing the tech investment ideas in a three-stage process.
The first step is a trained selection algorithm with ten years of historical tech investments.
Secondly, we start a structured assessment process to understand team skills, tech assets, critical success factors, and commercial impact prediction.
The thrid step is an in-depth assessment process, a solid preparation for a due diligence process.
