We are inviting visionary minds to be part of Deep Tech for Good, an SGInnovate initiative. This global initiative aims to gather experts in Science and Technology, entrepreneurship, academia, government and international affairs, to reimagine the boundaries of research-based innovation, catalyse collaborations among corporates, startups and governments, and advance Deep Tech developments for social and economic good.
We are bringing together the best and the brightest to share their vision and explore how Deep Tech can be applied in areas like Healthcare, Clean Energy, Agriculture and Transportation for the betterment of the planet and its people. We hope to achieve this goal through a series of collaborative initiatives such as Deep Tech talent building programmes, innovation challenges and research commercialisation efforts. We invite you to join our conversations and initiate meaningful projects. If you have an idea that we can collectively work on, please let us know.
To take up a career in Deep Tech, young talent need opportunities to explore how emerging areas such as AI, Robotics and Quantum Computing could be utilised to build meaningful solutions to big problems. Programmes such as Summation and the Infinity Series seek to provide these opportunities by matching top talent with high-potential Deep Tech startups.
The Covid-19 pandemic is an important reminder of the long-term importance of investing in and building human capital – health, knowledge, capabilities, skills and resilience – that are critical to ensuring that everyone has the opportunity to reach their full potential. This is especially true in Africa, which is home to the world’s youngest population and also to some of the toughest human capital challenges.
