HighTechXL is the Netherlands’ premier venture-building accelerator. We build teams of entrepreneurs and tech talents around the most advanced technology in the world developed at CERN, European Space Agency, 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. Together with our partners Philips, ASML, TNO and the BOM, we challenge, support and push them to become Brainport’s next Unicorn.
We’re searching for a Director of Technology to join our high-performance team.
• a deep technical background and experience in, for example, machine building, high-tech equipment development, photonics, medical device development or other disciplines
• a significant, far-reaching professional network
• experience in building partnerships
• interest in coaching and supporting startups in the early stages of technology development with technical expertise, networking and mentoring
We search for advanced technologies at top research institutes around which we build deep-tech ventures. That’s why the tech team is crucial, as they are involved at the very beginning of these ventures.
The tech team reviews 50 to 100 technologies each year, 20 of which are assessed in depth. This assessment yields a short list of technologies we make available to entprepreneurial-minded talents at FasTrackathon, the first step to starting a new company in our program.
Next to scouting for tech and being the interface for our technical partners, you are also involved with the teams during the program. You will coach them, support them and connect them to your network as they advance through the nine-month venture building program.
Working with renowned tech institutes, professionals in innovation, our corporate partners and ambitious, driven entrepreneurs, your days at HTXL will never be boring or routine!
You are a high-energy individual. You don’t lose yourself in the details but can zoom out to see the big picture. You love it when tech is applied in a way that it can solve big problems in the world.
You want to be part of this.
