U.S. Election Impact on Deep Tech Innovation and Funding

Join Propel(x) in a panel discussion with experts from government and venture capital industry as they discuss how the U.S. election outcome may impact their investing patterns.

Speakers were Ben Schrag from National Science Foundation, Ronjon Nag from R42 Institute and Jamie McGurk from Coatue Management.


Topics of discussion include

  • Does it matter for venture capital which administration takes office in January 2021?
  • What scenarios and policy changes do we foresee? Specifically – trade policy, climate policy, healthcare policy? What investment opportunities are available in each scenario?
  • How could funding for deep tech change? Could the support for SBIR programs change?
  • What tax policy changes do we expect relevant to early stage investors?
  • How do we expect the markets to react in each case? What would it signal for venture capital?
  • Finally, what are the current betting odds for each administration? Where do we think, we will land on November 3, 2020?
