making a difference

We’re deep-tech venture builders. We mobilize the Eindhoven region’s unique skills and networks by combining deep tech with entrepreneurship.

It starts with you.

HighTechXL is a venture-building accelerator that builds teams of entrepreneurs and tech talents around the most advanced technology in the world … technology from CERN, TNO, Philips and other global innovators. 

As teams mature in our program, we connect them with the investors and mentors they’ll need to emerge as viable businesses. HighTechXL also works with multinationals in Europe and China, helping them become faster, leaner and more competitive.


Learn the necessary skills to drive innovation such as resilience, resourcefulness and leadership.


Work in an agile and lean way that embraces failure but ultimately leads to success.


Visual and interactive tools to make sure your message gets across.


HighTechXL’s venture-building approach is the fastest way to build strong teams with everything they need to get deep-tech to market. We start with next-gen technologies, including lasers and particle accelerators, build our teams around that tech carefully and strategically, then put the new enterprises on the stage nine months later. It’s amazing to see … it’s even more amazing to experience.
