Part 1 - How COVID-19 is Affecting the Deep Tech Startup Ecosystem
COVID-19 has been the most profound shock to the national research enterprise since World War II. The repercussions are still shaking out, but lost research output due to temporary closures of most state economies has wreaked havoc on the pace of innovation and commercialization in the U.S. It is expected that the financial and economic affects of the pandemic on capital markets will be a catastrophic event for many early-stage companies, especially those that are bringing deep technologies to market. The first part of the Deep Dive Into Deep Tech Incubation webinar series will feature thought leaders from government, academia, startups, and the investment community to discuss how deep tech entrepreneurs can try to weather COVID-19 and make it out on the other side of this ongoing crisis stronger and better prepared.
