Deep Tech

Deep tech is no longer exclusively the province of tech giants and the scientific community. BCG’s deep tech consultants help clients leverage emerging technologies, engage deep tech ecosystems, and deliver both sustainability and profitability without compromise.

What Is Deep Tech?

Deep tech involves leveraging mature and emerging technologies to solve the largest problems facing the world today—while enabling bold business objectives and invigorating value chains.

Emerging technologies hold plenty of promise—but without a way to focus the right tech on the most pressing challenges, companies can’t gain their full value. BCG has pioneered strategies enabling organizations to go beyond the limits of traditional technology and achieve expanded functionality, sharper decision making, and sustainable operations.

Our Approach to Deep Tech and Deep Tech Ecosystems

BCG works with clients to redefine their value chains, revamp the way they work, and adapt to disruption by deploying big-impact, high-capital technologies such as artificial intelligence, synthetic biology, quantum computing, and augmented reality. Our deep tech consulting is distinct in scale and expertise:

  • We monitor accelerating deep tech trends to generate insight, and we make recommendations on best use cases and investments. 
  • BCG’s experts recognize situations where a firm could disrupt its industry through deep tech deployments—or where a competitor is threatening disruption. 
  • Our consultants act as catalysts between multiple players in the deep tech ecosystem, bringing within reach the extensive capabilities needed for successful ideation, setup, and scaling of deep tech ventures. 
  • BCG’s deep tech experts pay close attention to climate change and sustainability issues, leveraging powerful solutions to fuel real progress on this most urgent issue.
