Deeptech Labs, the accelerator and VC fund for post-Seed, pre-Series A deeptech companies will unveil its Spring cohort of 6 deeptech start-ups to an online audience of investors on 21st June. More than 120 VCs and Corporate Entities have previously attended its virtual demo days, demonstrating the significant and growing interest in the European deeptech sector.
Deeptech Labs is a Cambridge-based accelerator programme and VC fund, founded in 2020 by ARM, Cambridge Innovation Capital, Martlet Capital, Ewan Kirk and the University of Cambridge. The accelerator supports deeptech entrepreneurs as they move from prototype and proof of concept to scalable products and services, and connects them to Deeptech Labs’ extensive network of deeptech investors.
The Deeptech Labs accelerator programme and investment fund was founded to fill a significant gap in the European venture market and accelerate the growth of promising early-stage deeptech companies. Deeptech Labs supports its cohort companies through a specially-designed thirteen week accelerator programme, connecting founders with a global network of more than 50 world-leading deeptech entrepreneurs, technology experts and investors.

Miles Kirby, CEO Deeptech Labs said, “Europe has a number of global advantages in deeptech – we have 50% of the world’s best universities and the highest number of highly cited research papers - but there’s a disparity when it comes to European investment in deeptech companies. European deeptech companies attract $33 billion compared to $144 billion in the US.
Thanks to our deeptech-specific accelerator programme, our cohort companies are stronger, more resilient and have highly focused go-to-market strategies and that’s why so many investors attend our Demo Days – and how we are helping to fix the European deeptech investment gap.”
