About the Institute:
The Institute for Deep Tech Entrepreneurship aims to understand and address the critical barriers to the successful commercialisation of Deep Tech ventures. Many of the world’s most pressing problems — from addressing climate change, developing sustainable food and water systems, and improving human health and well-being — depend critically on the successful commercialisation of fundamental science and engineering innovations that are often referred to collectively as “Deep Tech”. Deep Tech is a cornerstone of continued advances in new technological paradigms that arise from fundamental science and tangible innovation.
The Institute for Deep Tech Entrepreneurship will build on the College’s strong entrepreneurial culture and outstanding established Science, Engineering and Medical research to position the College as a global leader in the design and implementation of entrepreneurial funding models, frameworks, processes and tools necessary to commercialise Deep Tech innovations emerging from universities.
