Deep Tech Canada

Vision & Mission

Our Network Formed to Bring Breakthroughs to Life

Before 2015, there wasn’t an easy way to access resources, support, and partners in the deep tech industry. Especially not from one place. That’s when our founder, Marie D’Iorio, saw an opportunity. Her vision? To facilitate partnerships and collaborations that bring scientific breakthroughs to the national and international marketplace. And, to do so by creating a network that helps members reach their full potential.

Our members are advancing next-generation technologies that are catalysts for change. Together, we’re strengthening Canada’s tech ecosystem, building new opportunities for individuals and industry, and improving lives.
