Welcome To HighTechXL

Here, hardware means passion.

We support hardware startup founders all the way from idea to prototype to scale-up by connecting them to a top-tier community of entrepreneurs, corporates, and investors.

Bring Your Hardware Startup To Life


HighTechXL Plaza is so much more than a place to be; it is a community of exceptional creators driven by their love for hardware and open innovation. We share knowledge, facilities, and network to foster the ultimate space where startups, scale-ups, and investors can work & connect under the same roof.



Building a hardware business is tough. We help hardware founders move fast from prototype to market through a 6-month hands-on program tailored to their needs. We cover the Hardware Startup 101 and plug early-stage founders into our dedicated network to fast track access to capital, customers, and suppliers.


Scale Up

Hardware startups need support all year round. This is why we created the HighTechXL Academy: A system of events and workshops designed to help startups kick-start and scale their business; address any question or processes from Lean, product development, manufacturing & distribution and finance.
