Start Out

Sting Incubate Deeptech

An 18-24 months long program of tailor-made coaching and support at a slower pace. In addition to all the support that startups in Sting Incubate enjoy, you get access to specific deeptech-related resources.

Sting Incubate Deeptech is for startups with solutions and innovations based on advanced and complex technologies, often with long development cycles, longer time-to-market and a need for large investments.

In our Deeptech program, we want to work with companies that are based on substantial scientific advances and new disruptive technologies that help bring solutions to some of our time’s biggest challenges. Game-changing companies within areas such as AI and machine learning, biotech, robotics, life science, new materials, cleantech and more.

Some of our alumni deeotech companies include Yubico, Diamorph, PerceptiLabs, Bioservo Technologies, Gleechi, and Adaptive Simulations. Are you next?

What others say about us

    The deeptech coaches have both strong technical and business backgrounds that have been invaluable for us to precisely draw our business strategy.

    Iman Vakili, Sencept

    Sting helped us grow significantly faster. Over the past six months, we’ve expanded our team, secured funding and have more than ten prospective customers.

    Fredrika Kringberg, Relox Robotics

    The coaches guide and help you find the way forward, they don’t tell you what to do. In the end, I’m the one who makes the decisions.

    Christina Lundbäck, Surfcleaner

What you get

In Sting Incubate Deeptech, you get all the support that startups in Sting Incubate enjoy, but for a longer period of time and with fewer hours of coaching; 8 hours of coaching per month.

In addition to what Incubate offers, you also get:

• Additional hours with expert coaches on IP issues
• Access to Sting’s Deeptech Partners, organizations such as RISE (advice on EU financing, help with technical due diligence) and IVA (access to CTO network).
• Access to Sting’s Deeptech Mentors: individuals with a deeptech background who have successfully commercialized and industrialized heavy technology
• Deeptech Talks, during which CEOs from current and alumni deeptech companies meet for experience exchanges.
• Investor Readiness Workshop with selected deeptech investors.
• If necessary, help to recruit a commercial person who may be able to become a co-founder.

Otherwise, everything is the same as in Sting Incubate:

Your personal coach has entrepreneurial experience and a network from your field and will challenge you to aim higher and reach further. You can get a seed investment of SEK 500 000 from Propel Capital and we give you access to investors all over Europe to help find and attract the right kind of financing.

Together with our partners, we provide you with the right people and resources to grow your business. If you get in, you will have resources like a corporate and the knowledge of a serial entrepreneur at your fingertips.
