March 16, 2017 - Eindhoven
Register Startups

XL Day is the place where a new generation of emerging high-tech startups launch, and where older generations of innovators share their successes. HighTechXL brings the entire industry – startups, investors, corporations, and decision-makers – under one roof for a peek into the technology-enabled future.


From introducing VR to the optometrist’s practice to giving independence to the blind, the latest batch of HighTechXL innovators defy conventional boundaries.
