DeepTechU // Connect, Collaborate, Venture to Change the World
DeepTechU is a new venture conference presented by the University of Chicago Polsky Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation in collaboration with several partner universities.
Taking place April 20 – 22, 2021, the three-day, virtual conference will focus on deep tech ventures from university researchers across various industries and feature quick pitches, panel discussions, among other educational content.
In its first year, DeepTechU is for entrepreneurial faculty and researchers from Midwest universities and venture capital investors interested in deep tech.
The goal of the conference is to:
- Build awareness of deep tech innovation and the important role of universities, national labs, and partner organizations
- Showcase the greater-Midwest pipeline with “early looks” into cutting-edge, research-based ventures
- Educate faculty founders on what investors are looking for and how to successfully get post pre-Seed capital
- Create opportunities for more inter-university collaborations and multi-institutional teams
