Stronger together

Did you create a product we can use in our prototyping? Or are you looking to build a new business? We’d love to talk about ways to collaborate. We bring experience with deep research, design, programming, data analysis, hardware and software prototyping, user testing and building companies across industries in order to create the best deep tech solutions.

How we work with...


Whatever you do, deep tech will impact your business and industry in the near future. Maybe your current core business gives you a leg up in creating novel new business and technical solutions. Combine your competitive advantage and industry expertise with our speed, agility, and unconventional ideas to create solutions that move us both forward.


As an investor that works with us, you will have the opportunity to invest at an early stage in vetted companies that build novel technologies and business models, jump started in-house by our own experienced team.


We start every project with interviewing industry, academic, and technical experts who help shape the scope for the problem we want to solve; they foster our knowledge of targeted user groups and our technologies of interest. We want to work with mentors who are excited about contributing to the growth of an idea and, later, a young company - providing pivotal advice and guidance to ensure its success.


Bringing academic research into commercial reality is difficult. But we can help: with a team of programmers, builders, business developers, strategists, and data scientists, we are ready to fill in the gaps and take your work to the next level. Via our network of partners we can help you navigate the deep tech landscape to provide access to additional resources and opportunities.


As an investor that works with us, you will have early access to high quality deal flow: early stage, vetted companies that build novel technologies and business models. And the experienced WATTx team is along for the ride, always there to provide technical and network support to ensure the success of our portfolio companies as they grow and mature.
