Our always evolving ecosystem
We are global and we think globally because societal challenges aren’t centered in one city or one country.
Our ecosystem includes startup centers, tech experts, business leaders and stakeholders across the globe, including HighTechXL partner Singapore Deep-Tech Alliance, Rise Europe and technology partners in the Netherlands, Switzerland, France, Canada, Poland and beyond.
We continue to reach out to those who believe advanced technologies and entrepreneurship are key to solving societal challenges.
If it takes a village to raise a child, it takes a robust ecosystem to build deep-tech ventures focused on solving grand societal challenges. We leverage our global network of tech and business experts to support our efforts.
HighTechXL is fortunate to have an outstanding supervisory board. We rely on their guidance and appreciate their support as we build deep-tech ventures that solve grand societal challenges.

You can’t build deep-tech ventures without deep tech. Our tech scouting team assesses technologies from research institutions and tech companies, and, if interesting, presents them to our Discovery Board for evaluation.
Our tech experts assess the technology on key categories, including maturity, IP status and application.
Once the Discovery Board gives the green light, technologies go to our tech pool and on to co-founders who want to start a venture.
