Ascent is a new Venture Partners accelerator for deep tech startups coming out of the University of Colorado campuses in Boulder, Colorado Springs and Denver.

Deep tech startups, or new companies focused on science and/or engineering, face unique challenges because of their disruptive nature, intensive research and development and significant capital requirements. Ascent understands the needs and pathways for deep tech startups to find success. Leveraging ecosystem experts, our mentor network, and Venture Partners staff, early-stage companies will accelerate their viability and traction over four months. 

We have just selected the cohort for 2022 and are actively recruiting mentors and subject matter experts.
