Join us as the Deep Tech Talent Initiative comes to the Web Summit in Lisbon

We are thrilled to announce that the Deep Tech Talent Initiative is gearing up for an exhilarating presence at the upcoming Web Summit in Lisbon 2023! This year marks an incredible opportunity for us to showcase our mission and engage with the deep tech community.

At our booth, we’ll be actively discussing the Deep Tech Talent Initiative, an innovative programme aimed at closing the gap in deep tech expertise across Europe. We invite you to visit us to explore how we will skill one million people within deep tech fields over the next three years.

Moreover, we are excited to provide the space to meet and network with some of our current Pledgers at our booth. It’s a great opportunity to hear how the initiative has helped their organisations and how they have positively contributed to the initiative.

As part of our commitment to fostering knowledge and growth, we will be hosting an exclusive masterclass. This session will offer a deep dive into the workings of the Deep Tech Talent Initiative. Open to both Pledgers and talents, this masterclass will provide insights into how we are reshaping the European deep tech landscape and creating opportunities for progress.

The Web Summit in Lisbon is an extraordinary gathering of tech enthusiasts, innovators and thought leaders. We can’t wait to be a part of this vibrant community and contribute to the exciting conversations and initiatives driving the future of deep tech.

Join us at our booth to learn, connect and be a part of the transformative journey towards a more robust and innovative deep tech landscape in Europe.
