EU-LAC Digital Accelerator invites you to join our virtual webinar ‘’The Deep Tech ecosystem in LAC: How European Corporate can benefit from LAC Startup Talent’’ next January 18th, 2024 at 16:00 CET.


Deep Tech startups are companies based on a scientific discovery or significant engineering innovation. Deep Tech startups involve significant technological and RD (research and development) risk. However, innovation in Deep Tech is essential to effectively address the great challenges of the humanities. Deep Tech companies have the potential to catalyse change, establish new industries and disrupt existing ones.

Today, with 340 Deep Tech startups, the Deep Tech ecosystem in LAC is valued at $8 billion and has a lot of potential to grow. The LAC region has strong advantages such as talent and the cost of RD (research and development), to continue developing and growing the Deep Tech ecosystem in LAC.

In June 2023, our partner IDB published a study on Deep Tech ‘The New Wave’, contributing to the description not only of these technologies, but of the existing potential in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC). Therefore, it is an excellent opportunity for our Accelerator to generate a discussion space that allows European counterparts to discover the deep tech potential of LAC countries.
