What start-ups say about HIGH-TECH.NRW
The HIGH-TECH.NRW program is recommendable, especially due to the commitment of the team and the individual support you receive there. By focusing on hardware startups and at the same time being open to the industry, a broad network of startups is created there in which people can openly exchange ideas at eye level while at the same time receiving help from established industry experts.
Dr.-Ing. Friederike Kogelheide, GLIM Skin, Batch #1
I see the good organization and clear structure as a particular strength of this accelerator. You are really “looked after” here. What’s fascinating about this program is the diversity of the participating start-ups, so you have a very broad view of the technology newcomers in NRW. The network is also one of the main arguments in favor of the program: precisely because the focus is cross-industry, there is no competition and you can learn a lot from each other and get new input.
Patrick Bongartz, Batch #1, 2nd place
The team behind HIGH-TECH.NRW consists of real experts who understand the deep-tech world and create an excellent breeding ground for real technological innovations in NRW. To all the tech start-ups out there – if you have a deep-tech orientation, HIGH-TECH.NRW is a MUST.
Dr. -Ing. Dennis Michaelis, GEMESYS Technologies, Batch #1, 3rd place
The HIGH-TECH.NRW Program was a perfect combination of mentoring sessions and in-person activities. All high level, both participating companies, mentors and the coordination team. Certainly a helpful program.
Dr. Débora Moretti, LiveSen, Batch #1
The combination of real start-up experience, broad network, and, above all, the will and willingness to support the participating start-ups at any time (even on Sundays!!) and seriously push them forward makes this program so valuable.
Boris Mayer, Innovative Robot Delivery, Batch #1, 1st place
The Accelerator allows us to make many interesting contacts and has given us another push in evaluating our business model!

Another unique feature of HIGH-TECH.NRW is that the mentors include industry experts with whom one can discuss very specific prospects and sales markets for one’s own technology.
Dr. David Dung, Midel Photonics, Start-up 2020, 3rd place
For House of Plasma, the program was a great success. We were able to consult on many strategic issues and adjust our own planning. This includes, for example, business planning including market entry strategies and the financing concept.
Dr. Moritz Oberberg, House of Plasma, Start-up 2020
Through our participation in HIGH-TECH.NRW, we have been able to expand our network to include mentors, coaches and partners from industry, finance and science, and acquire our first customers.
