Systems & Deep Tech
Under the hood of the Digital Economy are systems powered by decades of fundamental research and applied innovation into ground-breaking new technologies, creative algorithms, manufacturing techniques and disruptive use cases. In the formative years this was dominated by semiconductor technology that was the underpinning of Moore’s Law and the doubling of raw computing power every two years on average. As the internet took off, the focus partly shifted to communications equipment, mobility and wireless technologies that laid the framework of today’s hyperconnected world. As we look forward the lion’s share of research dollars are pouring into Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) powering the Deep Tech revolution.
Several professionals at Arma have technical backgrounds, including masters and doctoral degrees, and relevant industry experience, allowing us to engage meaningfully with CTOs and Heads of R&D, unlike generic financial professionals. This allows us to truly appreciate and effectively communicate the game-changing value proposition of Deep Tech companies, securing exceptional outcomes for our clients. The Arma team has sold fabless semiconductor companies to Broadcom and NXP and data analytics businesses to IBM and Verisk, as well as raised capital for disruptive businesses in 3D printing, autonomous driving, humanoid robotics and AI/ML, among others.
