Why you should join us

Deep Science Ventures is designed to enable potential founders to find a "true north"; a genuine sense of direction about which they feel true conviction.

Founders joining us have up to 18 months to form a company, are funded for the full duration and get to work with a dedicated sector specialist team. They join to work on opportunities that have been pre-scoped by us and have the chance to form more than one company over the course of their time with us, de-risking the standard founder proposition.

What do we look for?
Ambitious, resilient founders, with a real sense of urgency
Deep technical expertise with industry experience
Empathetic founders, with a strong ability to persuade through concise storytelling

Our founders’ stories


Aranza joined DSV as a Co-Founder. Although her original venture was found to have intractable problems, she subsequently joined Ryan, who was also at DSV as a Founding Analyst, to found Parallel Carbon. Despite operating fully remotely, and also becoming a mother in the same month she incorporated, they recently placed Top 60 in the X-Prize for Carbon Removal.
DSV's culture is unique in many ways. Founders' work-life balance has a special importance within the structure. This allowed me to fulfil my 2 greatest dreams within the same month: founding my own company and becoming a mum. Other places could consider motherhood as a liability or a problem, but DSV embraces the possibilities it could really bring to the table.


Gael joined DSV as a Founding Analyst, with no specific ideas, IP or team members. He left having built both a direct air capture company and a green hydrogen company, which in less than 12 months, together had secured £700k in funding and 5 additional team members, and received multiple offers of investment, all before he’d left DSV. These companies have now secured £20m in funding.
The task, to develop optimal technological solutions to some of the world’s biggest problems. The ideal outcome, to found multiple companies in the climate sector. An outcome that seemed almost impossible


Murat joined as founder in our founding cohort. You could call him a "founding founder". The way he built Antiverse served as an example around which we designed some of DSV's core methodologies. He started with an extremely ambitious outcome, and conducted expert interviews, ignoring their specific opinions about feasibility but focusing ruthlessly on uncovering the true constraints that underlaid those opinions. Today, Antiverse's technology represents the cutting edge in in silico antibody design.
The DSV team is there for the long run, and that is the type of support biotech and deep tech companies need. The growing DSV network has been a significant driving force behind our success. I can wholeheartedly recommend it to all entrepreneurs.
