We are delighted to announce our partnership with Hello Tomorrow - a global non-profit on a mission to unlock the potential of 'Deeptech' to help solve some of the world's toughest challenges.

Zinc will join the Hello Tomorrow ecosystem, providing our expertise in product & service design across hardware and software, to help accelerate startups going from lab to market in the most effective way.

The Challenge gives science & engineering focused entrepreneurs around the globe a platform for their research and projects, providing equity-free prize money as well as other funding opportunities, global visibility and connections with key players in the Deeptech innovation network.
