Mike Butcher at TechCrunch wrote an article featuring results of the investor and startup survey request in May. The article mentioned HighTechXL and several of our alumni, including Guus Frericks (HTXL Founder and Chief Growth Officer), John Bell (CEO), Betsy Lindsey, CFO of Aircision, Han Dirkx, CEO of AlphaBeats, Incooling, Amber, Dynaxion and Carbyon We agree with those surveyed the one thing that’s lacking is early-stage investment for deep-tech ventures like the ones we launch at HighTechXL. But we also see the tide is turning, and we welcome investors to support early-stage startups on their way to fast-growing scale-ups. Oh, and we beg to differ. #Eindhoven is poised to become the Netherlands' #1 tech hub.
