Deep Tech is different

What is deep tech? Deep tech can be described as advanced technologies developed at top research and development organizations and universities and not focused on products for the end-user. These are technologies that enable groundbreaking, transformative solutions that address grand challenges society faces today.

Building or growing a deep-tech organization is not for the faint of heart, no matter your gender. Deep-tech organizations – especially startups – face longer-term development cycles and unique investment challenges. But deep-tech companies also have potential for massive societal impact.

We want to shine the spotlight on inspiring women building and growing deep-tech organizations, including those working in government and universities. We want to know their inspiring story-behind-the-story, pulling them out of the shadows and into the light. Let’s celebrate the achievements of key deep-tech female leaders who are changing the world and securing a future that is better for everyone.
