HiTech and BioTech StartUp; R&D

The world of the Tech StartUp is special:

  • your technology is still in development
  • but you need to get your product to the market quickly
  • but you need to find or create your market
  • but your timeline and finances are (very) limited
  • and your team is growing, growing... (or should be)

What answers do we offer? You get an effective and efficient collaborative team by...

  • assessing your key employees: CEO, COO, CTO, CFO...
  • teambuilding: full speed ahead!
  • (self) leadership, communication and influencing
  • individual coaching

And so much more, the final result of your StartUp counts.

HiTech and BioTech StartUp; R&D

Assessment Key Positions StartUp

A failed recruitment of a key person (CEO, COO, VP Eng...) threatens the existence, and certainly the success, of your StartUp. That is why in-depth assessments, including behavioural tests, are necessary.

Personality crucial for StartUp success

Leadership in HiTech StartUps: key to succes

 Mobilising through leadership all talents is crucial to making StartUp projects successful. We highlight practical insights on how to make this happen.

Building a successful team

Nobody is perfect, but a team can become so.

Entrepreneurship in the startup team

StartUp companies stand or fall with the entrepreneurship of their founders. How do you get such a multi-dimensional concept measured and developed?


Most StartUps do not have enough people to carry out the many and complex tasks successfully. How do you ensure that you make the best use of your scarce manpower? The answer is... through teambuilding!

Soft skill training

Team members of a HiTech or BioTech StartUp or R&D department are often chosen and developed for their scientific expertise. But that does not mean they are productive, their soft skills translate talent and expertise into results.


Often, development themes, e.g. handling conflicts, do not concern the entire team but one or two employees. Coaching then becomes the most cost-effective approach. De Haan and Nilsson (2023), among others, show that coaching works in the workplace and for leaders.

Optimizing Founders' Coachability for Successful Startups

Results-rich coaching requires the coachee to be coachable. Below, we show that higher coachability of founders, promotes StartUp success.
