The event, planned for July 2023, will ask big questions about how we build the future – from sustainable cities to game-changing climate solutions and completely new paradigms of human health. Creating a space to connect and spark meaningful conversations about the ideas, technology, and innovators that can propel humanity into a better tomorrow.
Cicada will take a proactive approach to finding the next 23 startups, setting out on a national road show in early 2023 to engage with local ecosystems and unearth emerging deep tech voices and give them national platform and vital exposure and support.
Cicada will also implement a strategic shift from focussing on sectors like “agtech” or “spacetech” to looking at systemic solutions to broader problems, such as “reimagining the built environment” or “putting an end to waste”, to ensure a holistic approach to problems and solution design.
