How to develop a company towards DeepTech, and what does this actually mean?
Technologies referred to as DeepTech is defined as breakthrough solutions based on specific engineering innovations or scientific advances and discoveries. They are characterized, among other things, by a high potential for impact and a long time to market maturity and, thus, a high investment contribution. DeepTech technologies include solutions in artificial intelligence, machine learning, blockchain, biotechnology, robotics, automation or photonics, among others.
The market size of Deep Tech is estimated to reach $3.73 billion by 2032, and at the same time, around 15% of the market share is controlled by the top five companies. It indicates there is ample scope for deep tech ventures to flourish in the market.
The rapidly accelerating technological evolution requires us to derive as much as we can from and contribute to DeepTech technologies. By creating DeepTech technologies, we are creating the future. – Przemek says.
DAC.digital has DeepTech solutions in its portfolio that are changing reality all over the world: helping people with Parkinson’s disease, supporting healthcare facilities in Scandinavia, diagnosing osteoarthritis in dogs, connecting freelancers with SMEs in Latin America or optimizing and reducing the carbon footprint of many industrial and logistics processes.
