The X-Europe programme offers training, matchmaking, and promotion opportunities to deeptech startups and unites the network and services of F6S, TNW, Design Terminal, Growth Tribe, and TechChill.

Under the umbrella of the Startup Europe initiative, the EU-funded programme X-Europe aims to foster the growth of leading European deeptech startups by providing top-notch training and mentoring services and guiding partnerships with investors, corporations, and ecosystem builders. The programme is designed and run by five leaders in the startup community: F6S, TNW, Design Terminal, Growth Tribe, and TechChill.

X-Europe has entered its second year, with three cohorts in its pipeline: HealthTech, AgriTech and Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning, and now, we are super excited to launch the fourth open call for European startups and scaleups, this time in the Smart Cities and Sustainability domains.

Additionally, X-Europe seeks to connect ecosystems across Europe and allow opportunities, companies, and capital to flow freely across the continent.

The programme has been successful, providing growth and a plethora of matchmaking opportunities to 80 cutting edge deeptech startups. TNW Event has been a pinnacle of the affairs where our startups have digitally mingled among the global business elite, showing a keen eye for developing and commercialising innovative solutions and shining with their flying colours. Design Terminal’s Future of AgriTech Online Summit has shined its light to the AgriTech cohort, providing yet another opportunity for digital knowledge sharing and networking.

All services of the X-Europe programme are provided free of charge thanks to Startup Europe.
