For the fourth year in a row, the ten most promising startups-to-watch from the Brainport Eindhoven region have been announced. The event on Wednesday, July 12 attracted more than 200 people to the Oude Rechtbank – and was completely sold out. As last year, ten startups from the innovative Eindhoven High Tech Ecosystem were given the Gerard & Anton Awards, named after the two brothers that founded Philips at the end of the nineteenth century.

According to the jury, these ten startups will be making big steps in the next 12 months and therefore are “to be watched”.

This year’s winners are (in alphabetical order):

Amber mobility


Bambi medical




Haak Innovations













E52 startups-to-watch and the Gerard & Anton Awards are an initiative of E52, in collaboration with TU Eindhoven, High Tech Campus Eindhoven, Rabobank Eindhoven/Veldhoven, Witlox Van den Boomen, NextMove, City of Eindhoven.

Starting Monday July 17, E52 will publish a daily profile of all of this year’s winners. More on last year’s winners can be found here.
