How does a VC platform help deep tech startups?

A next level approach to investing in startups

Q Capital has developed a holistic approach to venture funding because deep technology is only as good as its ability to solve real pain points and scale in big markets.

Our Q.Inc platform offers founders an integrated path to access capital, expertise and network that helps de-risk the common challenges that deep tech and hardware startups face.

Ideation lab + design studio + venture capital

Capital is only part of the equation. We look for founders who value and want a VC partner that can help them cross the chasm to leap from the benchtop proof-of-concept to real-world applications with customers.

Our technical expertise and focus on corporate collaboration helps bridge that gap.
