Startup verticals most sought-after in 2020
When everything is a priority, nothing is a priority. To have a powerful all-consuming engagement in all industries’ affairs, accelerators need to have sufficient funds and devoted time. However, in such this case the question arises: it is better to do everything half the strength or something particular to the fullest extent? That’s why startup accelerators often choose only some verticals to work with so they could invest more and yield more. Also, it is important to remember that we only prioritize something necessary for our survival. Thus, the ventures that get the most investments tend to have an implementation on the global scale for the future well-being of the entire population.
Healthcare and life sciences. 2020 has shown us how vulnerable global health conditions are. Thus, inevitably, we will need alternative solutions in tech to solve the issues driven by the global pandemic and quarantine. Right now, it is especially topical to develop projects and apps for hospitals, health insurance companies, laboratories, and pharmaceutical providers.
Advanced manufacturing and robotics. Another structure quarantine-driven changes in manufacturing influenced is manufacturing. With fewer people being available to work in industrial occupations, it is important to automatize the production workflow even more than it was previously. It is important to not only being able to control high-tech machinery distantly but also produce durable techs to reduce reconditioning.
Agtech. Eat to produce or produce to eat? Well, for now, humanity spends much time trying to yield crops and breeding animals, wasting not only human resources but also natural deposits. Also, it is necessary to solve the problem with the efficient transportation of food, without it being spoilt. Another issue – what is to be done with the wastes after the food is not suitable for consuming? All of this matters on a global scale and the tech that will somehow solve these problems will be of great value.
Artificial intelligence. This is a universal technology that has an implementation in all the above- and below-mentioned industries. It enables such features as image and speech recognition, chatbots, language generation, data processing, and all of that may help in automation and cybersecurity.
Edutech. What stands behind all inventions and discoveries? What is the basis of constant global living conditions improvements? Education. With Edutech, it is possible to spread knowledge to long distances, in shorter periods, and with the ability to reach out for materials at any time convenient. That’s the opportunity to stick to in 2020 and onwards, and if you need help, these startup accelerators from Europe may help you (or these ones from North America, Australia, and Asia)
