Together with the European Commission, Dealflow.eu is excited to host this e-pitching event organized together with EurA AG, on 28 July 2022, from 10:30 AM to 12:00 PM (CET), to award the most promising DeepTech innovator that has emerged from EU-funded research and innovation projects. 

Sign Up to explore your next investment opportunity! 

The technological advances performed in 2020 by tech giants such as SpaceX, Blue Origin, META and more, made it clear that the powerful ecosystem is taking shape to transform the way we view modern technologies and AI. Successful DeepTech ventures bring together multiple talents of various expertise to solve a problem, and 97% of DeepTech ventures contribute to at least one of the UN’s sustainable development goals. 

The European Union is among those who want to look into the future with a thriving DeepTech industry. Based on data by Dealroom, last year European DeepTech companies were worth a combined €700 billion. 

During the e-pitching event, the following six startups and innovators will present their innovative business cases.
