PortXL is the 1st World Port & Maritime Accelerator for innovative start-ups and scale-ups that have the potential to disrupt the port and maritime industry. Since 2018, PortXL has expanded from Rotterdam to Singapore and Antwerp. The PortXL Antwerp program is focused on the Belgian port’s thriving Ecosystem. If you’re interested in the opportunity to impact this industry, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Each year, we invite cutting-edge start-ups and scale-ups to join our 3-month business fast track program, providing access to our global port, logistics, refinery & energy network and hands-on process support from our partners to scale your business. Our PortXL Antwerp program is now open for applications. You can apply here.
PortXL Antwerp 2019 program dates: September 2019 to December 2019 (applications close August 2019)
At PortXL we don’t just accelerate start-ups, we drive global maritime innovation. Our main goal is to increase the client base for start-ups and scale-ups entering or active in the port sector by scouting new products and technologies, finding a match with corporates and tackling industry issues together. Our corporate partners in Antwerp are Port of Antwerp, DEME, MSC Belgium and EY.
To experience the PortXL Antwerp journey through the eyes of the alumni and partners, check out the above aftermovie of last year’s edition. Among last year’s six selected participants, three contracts were signed at Shakedown, with others having built a significant pipeline of opportunities that have the potential to initiate future collaborations.
Who we’re looking for:
- Start-ups with a product that is scalable on a global level, and are looking for pilot opportunities
- Scale-ups looking to fine-tune their products and grow their network of corporate clients
