About This Event

With the whirlwind of events that 2020 brought, there is an urgency to accelerate tech innovation to address immediate challenges in industries such as healthcare and communications. Deep Tech refers to technologies that are based on tangible engineering innovation or scientific advances and discoveries. Some examples include Artificial Intelligence (AI), Internet of Things (IoT) and blockchain.

Deep tech remains promising despite the unpredictable economic outlook. With increasing support from the local government through support schemes, Deep Tech has also created many new exciting tech and non-tech career opportunities amidst the pandemic within emerging deep technology companies.

Joined by our partner, SGInnovate, our panelists will discuss the role of Deep Tech in powering industries of the future.
