A network of 104 Impact Builders join our X2.0 Growth Programme

We’re thrilled to announce that we have built a strong network of 104 Impact Builders (IBs), companies and individual experts, who will provide exceptional services to the startups chosen for our X2.0 Growth Programme.

The startups selected will benefit from the expertise and support of our Impact Builders, enabling them to drive growth and make a meaningful impact in their respective industries. 

Highly qualified experts from 28 countries will offer supporting services to the startups to generate impact and scaling-up in internationalization, commercialization, promotion, and legal aspects. They are going to provide needs-based, custom, industry-focused growth services that will be offered from May until September 2023. 

Ten lucky startups from more than 75 applications will benefit from the X2.0 IBs expert services in our first programme addressing Manufacturing & Circular Economy.


Who Are the Experts in Our Impact Builders Network?

After a rigorous process of evaluation of the 120 Expression of interest (EoIs) we received for the first Cut-Off, we proudly welcome 104 Impact Builders as part of our “Impact-Builders-Catalogue”. This network includes 56 experts in Finance/Investment, 35 in deeptech/Scientific areas, 73 in Business Development & Scaling-Up, 26 in Promotion & Communication, 18 in Internationalization/Soft-Landing, and 11 in Commercialization & Legal needs.

The Growth Programme for Manufacturing & Circular Economy is about to begin!

Finally, the first Growth Programme will take place from May 15th to September 15th.

Why participate in the Growth programme?

The X2.0 Growth Programme is an amazing and unique opportunity to scale-up your startup and network inside our Impact Builders community. 

Selected startups will receive €30,000 in Innovation Vouchers: €20,000 to cover the needs-based growth and scaling services, €5,000 to be used for mentorship and €5,000 for events, exhibitions, and fairs.

Impact Builders have a lot to gain as well: economic benefits for the provision of required services, establishment of business relationships with companies, attendance to events, seminars and meetings, ability to promote their company in our website, participation in a deeptech startup support programme and the most important one, being part of the X2.0 community providing networking opportunities with key stakeholders.
