Drawing on the expertise and experience in the University of Warwick ecosystem, we launched the Deep Tech incubator programme two years ago. 

The programme is going from strength to strength, attracting interesting and varied applications from businesses at different stages of their development journey. Our aim is to help them take their next steps – whether that is developing a business plan, launching a prototype product or service, or even finding investors.

As we are welcoming the third cohort of exciting and innovative businesses, we are pleased to introduce some of the ones supported so far below.
