Winners of the Hello Tomorrow Global Summit
Hello Tomorrow was created in 2011, and has since worked towards building a collaborative ecosystem that leverages the power of deep technologies to tackle world challenges. This is why it has built the largest and widest deep tech network and helps deep tech startups and corporations build new innovative solutions and grow stronger.

One of its flagship events is the Hello Tomorrow Global Summit, an annual conference that brings together entrepreneurs, investors, researchers and other stakeholders from around the world to discuss and showcase the latest advancements in deep tech. The summit features panel discussions, keynote speeches, workshops and also pitch sessions for deep tech startups.

The Summit provides an opportunity for innovative startups to gain exposure and access to a global network of investors, mentors and potential partners as Hello Tomorrow connects them with industry leaders.

Amongst the 70 startup finalist from this year’s Global Summit, the jury selected 11 projects with a strong sustainable impact, and today I would like to present briefly 5 of them:
