Our aim is to help you to validate your ideas, develop your business plan and access networks of experts and investors in the Warwick Innovation District ecosystem.

We chatted to Sandeep Konduru, founder and CEO of Remcare about how the incubator was crucial for helping to raise capital.

Making the Midlands a vibrant centre of innovation

The Deep Tech Innovation Centre was established to create more investable companies, attract more talent and make the Midlands a vibrant centre of innovation.

The University of Warwick Deep Tech Incubator is open for applications from entrepreneurs – or aspiring entrepreneurs – who want to create a sustainable business offering innovative solutions to global problems.


For aspiring deep tech founders, who want to create a sustainable business built on data science, artificial intelligence, or emerging technologies.

We talked to Andy Pardoe and Joanna Bates from the Deep Tech Innovation Centre to find out how businesses are supported. Listen to our podcast below.

Who can apply?

Anyone with a great deep tech idea or early stage business. There are no geographic restrictions, though we would like everyone to benefit from being part of a diverse cohort, so we’d like to meet you in person from time to time!

What do we offer?

We offer a flexible training programme designed for people at different stages in their entrepreneurship journey, which is based on the highly successful ICURe programme

One to one mentoring will help you shape your business plan and become investment-ready; and you will also have access to our networks of businesses, investors and other useful contacts

As a member of the programme, you will benefit from space in our new facility at the heart of the University of Warwick campus, to work, hold meetings or just get to know others in the programme
