📈 Chartpack: The rise of defence tech
How is the defence tech landscape shifting?
This week, I look at what’s happening in defence tech, a sector that combines deep tech, security and resilience-building. This broad umbrella category includes software development, novel materials and manufacturing, but also food security and biotech. The field is evolving — exponential technologies are expanding what is possible and needed, there’s an increasing amount of accessible capital, and at the same time — the sentiment around defence is changing — it is no longer taboo to invest or for talent to work in the industry as it may have been before Putin’s war in Ukraine.
In this Chartpack, we look at:
How the traditional paradigm of defence innovation is ineffective in a fast-changing world,
The new players that are changing the landscape,
How governments are using VC funds to secure their future security.
So, let’s dive in!
