Selection Day

Casting Day: Venture Building Program

September 2019

Join a deep-tech venture for the ride of your life!

At the end of June, we held the FasTrackathon, a reverse-hackathon where we sourced advanced technologies, and teams came together to identify application areas and possible business cases.

We sourced these seven advanced technologies from CERN, Philips and TNO:

CERN technologies:

Flame Detector


Fiber Optic Dosimetry

TNO technologies:

Printed Electronics & Sensors

Laser Infused Forward Transfer (LIFT)

Philips technologies:



More than 70 people attended, and 15 teams were formed. What happens next?

There is a summer program which allows teams to further develop their ideas and continue with a few deliverables. They will meet once a week on Tuesdays from 16:00-18:00. The teams will then decide whether or not to join the 9-month accelerator in September and actually work on building a deep-tech venture and take the technology to market. You can find information about the summer preparation sessions and see the technology one-pagers here.

Which is where you come in.

If you missed FasTrackathon but would seriously consider joining a deep-tech venture starting September 17th, you should come to Casting Day to meet the teams, learn about the technologies and get the inside scoop on how the venture building program works.
