Deep Tech investments
We help the tech start-ups powering the next industrial revolution
Who we’re backing
Advancing technology touches every aspect of our lives: agriculture, education, health, commerce, communication. We seek out the founders who are solving deep technical problems across every industry in ways that will transform our world. They’ve pioneered new business models to create opportunities and invent entirely new markets.
We’ve supported start-ups such as augmented reality eyewear manufacturer WaveOptics, machine learning software company Magic Pony Technology, orbital launch services leader Orbex and silicon chip analytics provider UltraSoc.
We bring our own deep scientific expertise, experience of growing complex businesses, and rich networks of universities, angel investors and experts to help make your big idea a reality.
The successes of the teams we’ve invested in speak for themselves. They’re powering Snap’s AR glasses, revolutionising the food supply chains and delivering payloads into orbit. It’s results like these that drive our passion to invest time, heart and hope into your vision, from quantum computing to robotics, and sensory augmentation to 3D printing. We have an office in the US and extensive resources to help founders who are based or expanding there.
