About the Podcast

Deep Tech Stories
A podcast making deep tech accessible by highlighting creators and pulling their tech from the lab into the real world.
What do you need to start a nuclear power start-up? How do you build a company from cutting-edge research? And how do you convince Venture Capitalists to support your quantum computing company?
Deep tech companies are based on significant scientific or engineering challenges, such as artificial intelligence, blockchain, nuclear fission and every other crazy thing you can and cannot yet imagine.

My name is Philipp. Currently, I am a PhD student in theoretical physics and in Deep Tech Stories, I explore the tech and stories behind exciting start-up founders and researchers in the deep tech space.
