Entrepreneur First: Science in Singapore and London

Over the past week, Entrepreneur First  have staged their 7th cohort demo day in London and their first in Singapore.

The two programs add to the Global startup ecosystem 30 new enterprises through graduation, and this round, we were excited to see even more of a focus on deep tech and science coming out of the award-winning investment programme. Global Head of Talent Zoe Jervier said “It shows that now, more than ever, the most ambitious technical individuals want to be founders and that they want to use technology to solving deeper, chunkier, futuristic problems.”

Below are some of our picks from the two demo days, spanning health, space, energy, environment and advanced computing – with links to their early-stage websites:
