Cork Deeptech Fest invites entrepreneurs to ‘push the boundaries of what’s possible’
Ever heard of Deeptech?
The term represents a new wave of rapidly evolving and converging technologies that are set to redefine innovation.
At the end of this month, Cork’s Republic of Work is hosting a unique and exciting networking opportunity for entrepreneurs in this space to gather, network, and find investment.
Attendees of Deeptech Fest Ireland at Republic of Work HQ on the South Mall will have the opportunity to join keynote talks, fireside chats, and panel discussions. There will also be live-pitch battles and other networking opportunities.
“Deeptech is more than just developing new technologies or achieving scientific breakthroughs,” said Programme Manager at Republic of Work, Eshna Gogia.
“It’s about pushing the boundaries of what’s possible and solving some of the most pressing challenges facing us today. From gene therapies to cancer treatments, from storing data on DNA to creating smart materials without harming animals, there are countless examples of how Deeptech can revolutionise our world.
“To achieve these breakthroughs, it takes cutting-edge research, interdisciplinary collaboration, and a bold imagination. Fortunately, Ireland has all the ingredients necessary to unlock the full potential of Deeptech.”
Republic of Work is partnering with one of its members SOSV to host the event on March 27th.
John O’Brien, Director of Global IT, SOSV says: “We are delighted to be taking part in Deeptech Fest Ireland. At SOSV, we are passionate about human and planetary health and see this event as a fantastic opportunity to connect, collaborate and share our global experience with others in the area.”
Deeptech Fest Ireland is a paid event (general tickets are €25, students €19), and coffees and lunch will be provided on the day, which runs from 9.30am until 6.30pm. For more information, or to book a place, visit Eventbrite or republicofwork.com.
