Techleap for Deeptech

We at Techleap are dedicated to empowering founders and building a thriving ecosystem of funding and support for the Deeptech industry. Our goal is to accelerate the creation of Deeptech startups and propel their development into scaleups with global impact.

Scaling Breakthrough Technologies

Deeptech companies develop and commercialise breakthrough technology to solve big societal and environmental challenges. When embarking on the journey of a deeptech venture, it becomes apparent that bringing a technology, like hightech, biotech or healthtech, from research to a scaling business can easily take 8 to 12 years.
To address this issue, we developed a comprehensive database comprising 260 organisations that support deeptech ventures in the Netherlands.

Deeptech Support Organizations

Within our database, we identified 11 types of organisations that offer direct support like entrepreneurial guidance, funding access, business support, knowledge support, space, community, or a combination of these services to deeptech founders in the Netherlands.
