Module/course Summary

According to a recent report by Hello Tomorrow, Deep tech ventures are characterized by four main attributes. They are problem-oriented, not technology-driven. They situate themselves, instead, at the convergence of technologies (96% of deep tech ventures use at least two technologies, and 66% use more than one advanced technology). Building on the advancements stemming from the digital revolution, deep tech has shifted innovation away from the digital world (“bits”) towards the physical one (“bits and atoms“), developing mainly physical products, rather than software (83% of deep tech ventures are currently building a product with a hardware component). Lastly, deep tech ventures rely on a deeply interconnected ecosystem of actors, without which it cannot thrive. For Deep tech ventures reimagining the right business model is often challenging. Many ventures tend to struggle to find a compelling value proposition, to define a clear target segment or customer and to think through potential revenue models. One reason for this is the lack of commercial profiles in the team. This course is all about bringing projects out of the lab and onto the market.
