BDC Deep Tech Fund Info Session (+ Networking)
Join us for a presentation by Thomas Park, the co-founder and lead partner of the BDC Deep Tech Fund, a VC fund focused on supporting Canadian start-ups developing “hard tech” such as quantum computers, photonics, fundamental AI and cleantech. The BDC is the Business Development Bank of Canada, a certified B-Corporation that has been serving Canadian businesses since 1944.
Deep tech, also known as “tough tech,” often requires major R&D investment to bring innovations to market. Deep tech startups face higher infrastructure and hiring costs than other tech ventures, such as business-to-business software companies, and product development timelines can be protracted, putting them at a disadvantage when vying for venture capital. Compared to traditional ventures, they need patient and sustained financing.
Learn more about BDC's activities in this area, and how your commercial project might secure funding through this exciting opportunity. There will also be a networking cocktail immediately following the event.
