The PortXL accelerator program is the first to be established tailored specifically for maritime start-ups. Since then we have added to our portfolio the Business Fast Track program, geared towards scale-ups. Our alumni start-ups and scale-ups all over the world have made waves in the maritime, energy, logistics and refinery sectors.
“As a direct result of PortXL’s outreach program we became aware of the needs within the broad spectrum of the maritime industry that PortXL represents and has a deep expertise in. Specifically, FWT developed a signed evaluation, pilot, and use case study with Royal Vopak. That relationship which provides both revenue and strengthened investor confidence vastly exceeds the contractual dollar (euro) amount many times over. Furthermore, the mentorship support that PortXL has led to a series of relationships that FWT will draw on now and in the future. “
“PortXL is the place to be for any start-up that wants to grow in the maritme sector. They facilitate matchmaking with relevant connections from the industry and thereby help you to kickstart your business with various industry leaders. We have grown a lot over the exciting 3-month period at PortXL, thanks to the amazing network, the coaches and of course the warm and welcoming team of PortXL! Highly recommended.”
For Planys, joining the program was one of the most impactful decisions the company made. The program not only made us realize the true potential/value of our technology solution to customers but also gave us a superb head start needed to start full-time operations in this part of the world. One of the main points that make PortXL unique is their focus on pushing both startups and partners in closing contracts – this is a boon for any startup!”
“PortXL gave Flower Turbines a stage to showcase big maritime companies our small wind turbines and their contribution to the sustainability goals. Being with peers / other start-ups and scale-ups propelled our development.”
