Airboxr, one of the companies that have made it to the 8th batch

Entrepreneur First (EF) has unveiled the six deep tech startups as part of its eighth cohort, the result of a program that was held virtually for the first time during the COVID-19 pandemic.

According to the company, the startups received online guidance and training from EF’s Entrepreneurs-in-Residence and its team of venture partners.

EF is a talent investor that backs individuals instead of fully formed startups. It claims to have helped over 2,000 individuals on its program, who have gone on to build more than 300 companies with a total valuation exceeding US$2 billion.

This news also comes after EF showcased its seventh cohort of nine deeptech companies in July last year that solved problems across diverse industries such as biotech, fintech, and energy-tech.

Below is a brief description of the six startups:


A no-code analytics tool for business users to consolidate and analyse data across multiple sources within their spreadsheets.


Leverages nanotechnology to create “self-disinfection” nanomaterials that kill microbes on contact through the absorption of visible light.
