Starting your business

‘Where innovation starts’ is the TU/e slogan not without good reason. If it is going to have an impact on people and society, the knowledge that is gained has to ‘land’ somewhere. For some thirty years, therefore, we have been initiating and facilitating spin-off companies. The result is more than 100 technology companies, including well-known successes such as Prodrive, Coosto, Xeltis, SMART Photonics and Flowid.
