Building deep-tech ventures to solve grand societal challenges.

Our unique recipe

We merge the unique skills of our global ecosystem with deep tech and entrepreneurship to build deep-tech ventures that tackle grand societal challenges. We support teams as they progress through our venture building program and connect them with essential resources, such as investors, advisors and customers.


Deep-tech venture building requires a bold spirit. We seek visionary entrepreneurs who are passionate about solving society’s most pressing challenges with cutting-edge technology.


We scout advanced technologies from world-renowned research institutions and tech companies, assess them based on patent position, novelty, manufacturability and knowledge transfer, then explore applications for each one to begin the venture-building process.


HighTechXL fosters deep-tech ventures aimed at solving societal challenges by leveraging a global ecosystem that includes the Eindhoven Startup Alliance, technology and program partners and a vast network of industry experts, advisors and investors. Our mission is to build impactful ventures, and our partners share our vision and collaborate with us towards achieving it.

Venture building

Our venture building approach is rigorous, with teams working on all aspects of the venture with  support from our global network. We support teams throughout and after the program. Complicated, but worthwhile.


We believe deep tech can fuel the transitions we need globally for sustainable development. To that end, we support deep-tech ventures that address global sustainable development challenges and require them to focus on at least one of the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
