Startups are the key to innovation in the Port

If you only work with established solution providers, you risk missing out on potential new sources of innovation: buying from/collaborating with an innovative startup or scale-up in the port sector gives you a competitive edge. Startups may also simply outperform existing solution providers in the port because they have less overhead costs, and a stronger innovation focus.

How does it work


With the Venture Fast-Track we want to help you get ahead of the market by uncovering opportunities for strategic partnerships with the most innovative & disruptive companies that match a challenge in your business environment. That is why we start with a 1 day onboarding workshop where we will help you identify that challenge. Afterwards we will create a tailor made search profile based on the outcome and specific sector & industry knowhow that is unique to PortXL.


With the search profile we will search for, shortlist and reach out to max. 10 startups or scale-ups that match the challenge. The result is a report with with the selected startups and our analysis on why this could be a solution. Over the last 4 years we have successfully scouted over 2000 startups in the sector this has allowed us to create unique network of startups that is unmatched in the sector.


After you receive our report we will schedule a second workshop where we will organise quick 30 min introduction calls with your selected matches. In the last 4 years we have matched over 100 companies and their challenges with innovative & disruptive startups. We know working with startups can he hard but our acceleration programs are designed to help you engage with startups in pilots and create value together.
