On Creating Deeptech Confluences: mobilizing private capital into ventures…

This post builds off post 1, post 2, and post 3 and is the final part of this Deeptech Confluence series. Here we look at the peripheral yet pivotal players of the Confluence that have not been mentioned so far: the Confluence Champions. These groups and individuals are essential in bridging together entrepreneurs, investors, and policymakers into a cohesive ecosystem.

The previous posts have highlighted various best practices for each Confluence stakeholder to push forward technologies from lab to market; this post however simply highlights what Champions do and look like in order to encourage others to do the same. In particular, we focus on how Champions network and shape the story of their Confluences.
