Eindhoven’s fast-rising deep-tech star is looking for talent, ready to expand its founding team.
Incooling is searching for people to fill three crucial positions in computing, refrigeration and data center industry expertise.
The six-month-old team is adapting CERN CO2 technology to cool computer chips, CPUs and GPUs. In other words, to completely upend the semiconductor landscape. Who wouldn’t want to be part of that?
This is one of Europe’s most dramatic startup stories.
Just in April, the Incooling team:
• announced at the Beyond Tech conference that they had raised 630,000 euros, 30,000 of it from the Eindhoven Startup Alliance, and the rest from undisclosed private investors. (See the vid above.)
• won the pitch competition at VentureCafe Rotterdam, claiming the grand prize: a plane ticket to InnoVEX in Taiwan. Garage+ selected Incooling to go to Computex (InnoVEX is a part of Computex), so they will have one booth at InnoVEX and one at Computex. The team will spend 10 days in Taiwan.
• was chosen to attend Global Entrepreneurship Summit (GES) in The Hague.
• won “wild cards” to pitch at the Get in the Ring Global Meetup in Berlin.
• announced they’re opening an office in Silicon Valley in 2019.
In addition, Silicon Valley-based investor and entrepreneur Sander Arts is joining the advisory board.
Not bad for a company that started last September as HighTechXL pivoted from a conventional tech accelerator to a deep-tech venture builder, working with CERN, Nikhef and other world-class research centers to take their latest technology to market.
From the Incooling jobs tweet (Hey, they’re 20-somethings, okay ….):
Incooling is hiring! That’s right! If you are passionate about computer hardware, like to play around with cooling systems to overclock your computer or simply would like to get into this industry have relevant experience then this is for you!I
Incooling currently is in HighTechXL’s accelerator program for deep-tech startups. So you would not just join a hot startup, but would go to work in Building 27 on High Tech Campus, the largest startup hub in the Netherlands.
So you could have an ordinary career. Or, as HighTechXL CEO Guus Frericks says, “Why should we work on the easy stuff when we can work on complex things that matter?”
