The Session

Grill or Chill (GoC) is a platform for startups to showcase their products and get valuable feedback from experts in the startup ecosystem.

The Theme for this month is Deep Tech,

Deep Tech, or deep technology startup companies are startup companies with the objective to provide technology based on substantial scientific advances and high tech engineering innovation.

They require lengthy R&D, may take a long time to reach commercial application, and often require large investments to achieve commercial success.

The underlying intellectual property of deep tech innovations is usually well-protected and hard to reproduce, making it a strong competitive advantage or barrier to entry.
