Entrepreneur First unveils latest class of European deep tech startups

Entrepreneur First (EF), the leading global talent investor, today announces its latest cohort of deep tech companies to investors and the public in a virtual alternative to the company’s flagship European Demo Day event. The online showcase, which comes amidst the ongoing social distancing measures announced in response to the global Covid-19 pandemic, highlights the talent and teams formed across EF’s three European locations – London, Berlin and Paris.

The digital unveiling of the EF Europe 13 cohort sees 25 startups in emerging deep technology fields such as AI, biotechnology, machine learning and robotics, pitching their ideas to the world’s best investors. The diverse cohort includes companies leveraging innovative technologies to address present and prescient global issues, including accelerated drug discovery using digital twin cells, environmental pollutant monitoring, artificial brain development for robotics applications and beyond.

EF decided three weeks ago to switch to an online-only format, given the ongoing global coronavirus pandemic. Hundreds of investors have signed up for an exclusive preview today and virtual office hours have been booked with leading funds from around the world.

Matt Clifford, co-founder Entrepreneur First, comments: “While the format of today’s Demo Day event may have changed, the focus remains the same – introducing the globally important companies of the future to the world’s best investors. Entrepreneur First believes that the best way for the most ambitious and talented people to fulfil their potential is to use their exceptional talent to build companies, transform lives and change the world. With the right support, one talented individual has the potential to fundamentally change the way an entire industry operates – which is perhaps even more important in this period of global upheaval.

“Today’s launch reaffirms Entrepreneur First’s role in promoting the use of innovative deep technologies across a wide range of sectors – including biomedical sciences, healthcare and engineering. The breadth and ambition of companies on display today demonstrates the talent and vision of our Europe 13, and the huge response from investors already is evidence of the fact that they are willing to back innovative, high-growth tech startups through difficult times. Our mission as talent investors is to activate and amplify exceptional talent around the world and to enable individuals to achieve outsized global impact and scale, and we believe that this mission remains as vital as ever during challenging socioeconomic times.”

EF’s bespoke programme, the first of its kind in the world, invests time and money in outstanding individuals, helping them to find a co-founder, develop an idea and create a high-growth technology company from scratch. Since its inception in 2011, EF has helped over 2,000 individuals build more than 300 companies worldwide, with a total valuation of over $2 billion.
