Building Deep Tech Talent for Meaningful Causes [Online Event]

About this Event

There are endless possibilities in the world of Deep Tech - the different domains allow for a vast number of opportunities for talent to pursue meaningful causes.

Beyond profits and margins, Deep Tech companies are increasingly pursuing missions to better social and economic good for the planet. This vision for a sustainable and liveable future has helped spark the creation of many enterprising companies looking to make a positive impact on society. On the individual's scale, people are always looking for a meaningful purpose and direction in their job opportunities.

Across industries, it takes more than one person to reach these lofty goals - a group of like-minded, talented individuals with relevant expertise is necessary. Assembling and being part of the right team takes a lot of time and effort, with many hurdles and pitfalls to overcome and find the matching pieces.

Join the conversation with our diverse panel of Deep Tech leaders and supporters as they share their experiences in working for Deep Tech companies, teamwork and the necessary drive needed to reach the end goal of making lives better.
