IN collAboration with hightechXL

Founded in 2015, HighTechXL began as a focused effort to bolster Eindhoven’s tech scene by making sure promising early-stage startups got the guidance and financial support to advance to market.

By partnering with Eindhoven’s multinational tech giants, we developed a three-month acceleration program specialized in supporting hardware startups. HighTechXL's efforts were spectacularly successful, with a 60-plus percent survival rate. Moreover, we produced an amazing number of transformative companies in multiple market sectors.

In 2018, we pivoted to venture-building, creating teams around the advanced technologies developed at CERN, Philips, TNO, Nikhef and other global research centers. Now, those teams spend nine months in an even more intense process that takes them to international competitions as they raise capital and perfect their deep-tech MVPs.

We support them in developing the skills, learning the methods and using the right tools necessary to expand their business. (More Info.)
