Summary of Key Learning PointsSuccessful Deep Tech ventures have 4 main attributes. They develop physical products ratherthan focusing only on software. They are at the centre of a deeply interconnected ecosystemrather than trying to emerge & scale solely through VC and PE.There are eighty three percent of ventures building a physical product rather than software onlyandone thousand and five hundred universities research labs involved in Deep Tech. They solvelarge fundamental issues rather than optimisation and incremental innovation. They play at theconvergence of technologies rather than relying on one exponential technology.Deep tech also widens the option space. Convergences of approaches include advance science,engineering and design. While convergence of technologies include matter and energy,computation and cognition, and senses and motion. This allows more breakthrough solutionswith leads to accelerated cycle. This cycle involves Design - Build-Test-Learn.
