We accelerate start-ups with network, expertise and access to capital

WHO WE ARE

HIGH-TECH.NRW is a network for a strong high-tech and deep-tech economy in NRW.

As an early-stage start-up accelerator for high-tech and deep-tech start-ups, it is commissioned by the Ministry of Economy, Industry, Climate Protection and Energy and implemented and orchestrated by the think tank NMWP Management.

VISION

HIGH-TECH.NRW as the most important hub for high-tech and deep-tech ventures in Europe

WHAT WE DO

As a statewide initiative, we connect high-potential start-ups with universities, industry and politics, building bridges for a strong, climate-friendly and progressive high-tech-based economy in Germany’s most populous state.
A networked high-tech economy is the foundation for sustainable promotion of relevant key technologies and thus also an essential strategic factor for achieving climate policy, social and economic goals.

WHO SUPPORTS US

Ms.  Mona Neubaur, Minister for Economy, Industry, Climate Protection and Energy of the state of North Rhine-Westphalia, assumes the role of patroness for the Accelerator HIGH-TECH.NRW .
We are very pleased to have Ms. Neubaur on our side, as she is committed to maintaining NRW’s international competitiveness by creating a climate-neutral and strong industry. This requires new technologies, which are created primarily by national high-tech and deep-tech start-ups .
