Supporting Deep Tech with great Partners.
Foundation for Polish Science, Leon Kozminski Academy and Black Pearls VC will support Polish startups that have developed unique, advanced technologies with great market potential. Creation of new investment fund will be they key to do it.
The model of cooperation between the institutions of science and business implies active searching for investment projects in the academic and scientific community, providing them with management support, investment capital and assistance in entering international markets. The concept will be realized by establishing a new investment fund focused on Deep Tech projects based on unique, scalable and difficult to copy technologies developed by Polish startups. With potential success of application to the Polish Development Fund Starter Program and participation of private and institutional investors, the funds capitalisation will reach € 15m.
