In recent months prime Minister Rutte, Bundeskanzler Merkel, Queen Maxima, Neelie Kroes, Prince Constantijn and many others visited High Tech Capital Eindhoven. Eindhoven is recognized as fertile ground for startups. We have many tech, design, service and other startups. But which ones are the most promising? Which startups do we need to keep an eye on in the future?

A jury of experts has identified 10 startups from the Eindhoven region that surely make the headlines in the coming 12 months. It will be the third edition of the Top 10. Some former Top 10 startups are Sapiens, Manus VR and Smart Photonics.

The jury members are: Chairman Staf Depla (alderman City of Eindhoven), Gerard Spanbroek (Brainport Development), Saskia Romero (Rabobank Eindhoven-Veldhoven), Bert-Jan Woertman (High Tech Campus Eindhoven), Broos Bakens (EY Eindhoven), Mark de Greeff (Eindhoven365), Robèrt Molenaar (Witlox van den Boomen)
