Investment in deep tech startups is increasing year on year, as per a recent report. This trend clearly indicates that investors are drawn towards deep tech startups that can deliver notable returns over the years. Enabling such tech startups is a different deal altogether and to help accelerate their journey, a new post-seed accelerator from Cambridge named Deeptech Labs (DTL) has been launched. 

DTL is backed by some of the most notable names in the deep tech industry such as Arm, Cambridge Innovation Capital, Martlet Capital, Ewan Kirk, and the University of Cambridge. The accelerator has also selected and revealed the name of five startups, which will be a part of its first Cohort. 

New post-seed accelerator 

Deeptech Labs is the newest post-seed accelerator founded in Cambridge, enabling deep tech startups to scale faster and better. DTL’s inaugural cohort has made investments in five Machine Learning and Data Science companies: AutoFill, BKwai, Circuit Mind, Contilio, and Mindtech

In a conversation with UKTN, Deeptech Labs CEO Miles Kirby notes, “We help promising startups by surrounding them with community experts who have been down the same, or a similar path before. Throughout their 13 week journey they are provided with 1-1 mentoring and advice which, I believe, makes a big impact.”

Kirby reveals more about what happens in DTL’s programme. Twice a week, they help their cohorts take a step back from the daily grind and focus on setting a clear strategic vision and implementing it. “Selected companies receive a £350,000 investment and a structured three-month development programme. They are invited to participate in the Deeptech Labs Demo Day where they are introduced to the world’s leading deeptech investors. This year, that will be taking place on the 18th of June,” Kirby says.

Let’s take a quick look at these startup and what they specialise in.
