"Founded in 2015, at HighTechXL we believe innovation is an answer for the grand challenges of the world, and that anyone with a good idea of making a positive impact, should be empowered to make it a reality.
We started in Eindhoven, a region focused on R&D and high tech business, where the normal accelerator model would not cut it for the hardware startups. By partnering with the big companies in the region, we developed a 3 month acceleration program specialized to support hardware startups to go from prototype to market.
Next step was to try out this program with corporate teams - projects that have top priority or need a re-scoping. Also here we validate their business in 3 months and build an entrepreneurial mindset whilst doing that.
HighTechXL empowers those within or outside of a company to turn their ideas into a reality - to make an impact. We support them in developing the skills, learning the method and using the right tools necessary to grow their business."
