Top 3 trends to watch out for in Deep Tech, according to fellow 4 European investors who spoke at Frontier DeepTech:

👩‍💻 New Algorithms

"We have only just started to scratch the surface of what we can do with data and new algorithms" - according to @mickhalsband from Lunar Ventures
🛰️ Space infrastructure

"Space and space-related technologies can help humans evolve over the next 20-50 years and beyond" - according to Avantika Gupta from Type One Ventures

"Nothing we are doing online is basically safe."

I think this quote from @zama_fhe 's founder @randhindi yesterday can sum up the 1st day of @f_deeptech

#cybersecurity was a recurring theme throughout the 1st day in a way:
It was mentioned during the #quantumcomputing panel I chaired yesterday, where I was joined by ORCA Computing's Richard Murray , @QuantinuumQC 's Waseem Shiraz and @aegiq_tech 's Max Sich

It was of course the key theme of Rand's talk on homomorphic encryption
And it came back right at the end when Roderick Rodenburg snatched victory of the startup competition for @RosemanLabs - awarder by the 3 VC judges: Obinna Nnewuihe, @SpaceSaxena and @qualleja

Physics is about to be eating the world.

Software is finishing up the appetiser, before the the main course arrives.

Happy for you all to quote me on this one 10 years from now.

If one day my VC ever gets to the levels of @a16z - this would probably be the reason.
Their founder's "software is eating the wold" classic quote underpinned their "contrarian" investment thesis at a time when the world was recovering from the dot-com crash.
They were right and the VC world today sees them as one of the legends alongside the early Silicon Valley pioneers still around, like @sequoia

Today they think the future is the metaverse. I.e. digital-2.0

I don't.

That's my contrarian view.

Software and the web have eaten the world.

Their lunch may have reached dessert...

a 🧵👇

"Information technology has changed the world. It started changing business a long time ago, but now even pop culture is downstream of tech.
We got memes, we got selfies, we got Soundcloud rappers, we got… The Kardashians. “IRL” has been secondary to “online” for a long time and that became official with the pandemic."
It all happened from the rise of 'the Cloud' and the iPhone's 'user friendly' mobile internet revolution. But...

"The end product is very sexy and you know, that's what draws people's attention, but the whole back end of it is what makes it possible."

"I'm trying to correct the misperception that design is the hard part. It is not the hard part."

Loads of insights here from @elonmusk on SpaceX’s 5-Step design and manufacturing process 🚀 ─Check it out🍿📺

I can see a lot of similarities with the general misconception surrounding the startup world:
@elonmusk The idea that unicorns are born out of an "idea", an "Eureka moment" of design inspiration.

Last Friday I took part in a panel on " Deep Tech investing for the non technical" alongside impact investor @mayaghosnb, fellow deep tech investor @FaridHaque, @VAUBANDOTIO founder @ulricmusset and IoT founder @SyedAhmed

Here are 3 points that emerged from the discussion
@mayaghosnb @FaridHaque @VAUBANDOTIO @ulricmusset @SyedAhmed 1. OPPORTUNITY: Deep Tech has the potential to accommodate a lot more funding in Europe & will allow investors to participate in the 3rd wave of tech infrastructure innovation -after the original VC silicon wave of the 60s/70s & the Cloud infra wave post dot-com burst
@mayaghosnb @FaridHaque @VAUBANDOTIO @ulricmusset @SyedAhmed 2. RISK: But! If you are indeed non technical, you should probably NOT jump straight in. Real deep tech means advanced computer science, hardware and fields requiring the understanding of complex R&D risks:

VC rounds ballooned in the last 2 years BUT the biggest hyped was (especially in Europe) at later stage...

Expect more pain on the fall down 🤕

Says @yoramdw
But money keep being raised by VCs: dry powder is out there 💣
(Caveat: now it's slowing down)

Wie kommt man so als #Wisskomm Angesteller in der Industrie unter?
Für alle, die nicht #Hanna sein wollen, aber auch die Wissenschaft lieben.

Ein kleiner 🧵:
Zuerst, meine Position.

Ich habe momentan eine Position als 'Scientific Marketing Specialist', und wie ihr schon erkennen könnt, hat #wisskomm in der Industrie oft mit Marketing zu tun.

Ich weiß nicht wie es euch geht, aber ich hasste immer Marketing wie die Pest.
Zum einen, da man natürlich verkaufen will und viele Marketing Tricks schlichtweg manipulativ, unehrlich oder so Klischee beladen sind, dass es einem das Herz zerreißt.

Zum anderen, da der 'Inhalt' so hohl ist und stinklangweilig. Immer ist alles 'super', man habe 'das Beste'

.@KanchanGupta: #BigTech is now playing an interventionist role in democracy, #RedTech is being used for #surveillance and subversion, while #DeepTech is about criminality.

Anne Neuberger: In the ongoing #Ukrainewar, #socialmedia companies wanted to control the #information imbalance but that has caused public resentment over the lack of #transparency and access to complete information.

Here's a balanced thread on #academia vs #industry from the perspective of someone who has held senior positions in both. I'm going to write this thread because a lot of what I read here reduces to "my tribe is better than yours" or "grass is always greener".

The academic trade is fundamentally freedom for money.

As a Sr #academic you barely have a boss and really get to determine which of millions of options you can pursue. New intl grants? More policy engagement? Acad leadership? Media? Translational research? All up to you.

Making the most of this implies a couple of things:
1) you must have a clear path to a senior position to take advantage
2) your institution must not be over corporatizing.

Let's address these two

Investment into Turkey’s tech scene skyrocketed in 2020: Turkish startups raised a record $139m and local VCs raised $328m, according to @startupswatch 🇹🇷

Let’s dive into Turkey’s VC landscape 🧵👇
1/ Despite a 31% growth in VC and angel investment from 2019, more than half of the total $139m raised went to Turkish companies with a legal structure abroad:
2/ Turkey’s largest funding round in 2020 was into marketing management platform @useinsider ($32m). Other notable funding rounds include @AppSamurai’s $2.4m Series A, @visperaco’s $2.1m Series B and Twin’s $2m crowdfunding.

I can smell bold, aspirational thinking wafting through the DC air.

Truth is, govt has always been a visionary trailblazer, market shaper, and innovation catalyst. It’s time to channel that to solve climate change, pandemic prevention, curing all known diseases + more. Brief 🧵
1. @NSF, through the vision set by @CIA and others, funded a project that created Google…
2. @DARPA provided the leadership and early funding & coordination for ARPAnet that set the foundation for the internet

1/ Scientists everywhere are looking for countermeasures against #COVID19. @DCVC and @DCVCBio are proud to work with companies like @AbCelleraBio that are making concrete progress.
2/ Moving quickly is key. @AbCelleraBio mapped 500 unique fully human antibody sequences in just 11 days – it’s the largest panel yet and a massive opportunity to identify antibodies that neutralize SARS-COV-2
3/ Together, @AbCellera and @LillyPad will screen these 500 antibodies and test new therapies in patients within the next four months. Not years, but months to a potential countermeasure to stop the outbreak.

This is a very nice piece: @johnsalvatier points out a fundamental feature of #invention, whether in research or creating technology (thread)
You have a problem and can see/measure misc. details of it. Some of these are key to solving the problem, and they are right before your eyes. But they are INTRINSICALLY not distinguishable from the rest until you know how to solve the problem=which ones are important.
As we search for the key details, we need both hard work, careful scrutiny of facts, constructing and testing models of reality, AND thinking about what we're not thinking about. And it'll be excruciating along the way.

Check out this @ITIFdc discussion of how @NSF has become "America's Seed Fund" for #deeptech #startups.

Honored to join @ProfDavidHart, Renee Bender @SmallBizCmte, Meagan Sunn @HouseSmallBiz, & report author @rob_rozansky.…
@ITIFdc @NSF @ProfDavidHart @SmallBizCmte @HouseSmallBiz @rob_rozansky The @sbirgov program awards ~$3B/year for small businesses to do R&D. Remarkable finding from @ITIFdc report:

47% of all $$ went to companies receiving >10 $1M awards.

18% to companies with >50 awards

10% (~$3.9B) to just 25 companies w/ >100 awards!…
@ITIFdc @NSF @ProfDavidHart @SmallBizCmte @HouseSmallBiz @rob_rozansky @sbirgov @NSFSBIR awards small business R&D $$ to very few repeat players.

@dodsbir awards $$ overwhelmingly to repeat players.

@NIHsbir, @NASA_OSBP, & @DOESBIR are all somewhere in between. Image
