Coming up: Prepare to become a deep-tech startup founder at HighTechXL Info Sessions

HighTechXL is preparing to launch its next cohort of deep-tech startups that will enter the nine-month venture-building program this fall. We’re the Eindhoven-based venture builder that’s produced dozens of startups since 2015 including Sustonable, Accerion, Incooling and Carbyon. In aggregate, HightechXL startups have raised more than 100 million euros, with a far higher survival rate than other accelerators.

Sound more fulfilling than that boringly predictable corporate gig?

The doors (and borders) are wide open for the next crop of co-founders. HighTechXL’s assessment process begins now for CEOs, CTOs and CBOs, a process that culminates in everyone coming together for FasTrackathon, our deep-tech hackathon, on 16 September. (You can pre-register here.)

FasTrackathon teams will form around technology from CERN, European Space Agency, Philips and other research centers and corporate R&D labs.

We’re making it uber-easy to get all the info you need to start your entrepreneurial journey. (Hint: It’s all online)

Check out our updated Info Session landing page here.

On this page, you can request a link to see the Info Session video. Our founder and CEO Guus Frericks gives you all the details about scouting advanced technologies, the co-founder assessment process, and what you can expect if you become a CEO, CTO or CBO of a deep-tech venture.

Full disclosure: The co-founder positions are unpaid until the company meets the required deliverables and secures funding from an investment round and/or subsidies. The co-founder positions may not be paid, but entrepreneurs see real startup life, real close. 

HighTechXL provides teams with workshops, expert sessions, experience labs, network connections, pitch opportunities and all the building blocks they need to create a successful company.

By being part of the HighTechXL venture building program, you are likely to reach the funding stage with a significantly higher chance of success than if you didn’t complete the program.

After you’ve watched the video, you have the opportunity to meet the HighTechXL team and ask your burning questions during the Info Session Q&A online event coming up 7 July, or next month on 18 August.

We’re holding these events now so co-founders have time to understand our venture builder process and gather all the info they need to join a deep-tech venture this fall. Since the first info session in February, dozens of people have attended the info session, gone through the co-founder assessment process and ultimately joined deep-tech ventures in our latest cohort.

So, check out the Info Session page and start your research. And don’t forget to watch the videos of other co-founders to hear their co-founder success stories. It may be just the push you need to take the first steps.
