Built Environment Track powered by Nemetschek

Our Built Environment Track powered by Nemetschek and supported by BEFIVE boosts outstanding early-stage start-ups in the biggest industry ecosystem on earth: the built world.

In the coming years, the built environment sector will undergo the most fundamental transformation of its existence. This offers innovative start-ups immense potential to become a driver of the change process. Building bridges between the “old” and “new” players is therefore a key success factor.

Our entry requirements

  • Technologies like computer vision, reality capture, point cloud, IOT, edge computing, AI, augmented & virtual reality

  • Digital Twin Solutions with emphasis on:

    - Aggregating and analyzing data from multiple sources (IOT, thermal imaging, sensor, etc), in conjunction with the existing building information data, to provide value to various stakeholders (Ex: emissions reduction, occupancy, energy utilization, increased comfort, etc.)

    - Simulating data from / on existing building assets to improve performance, predict maintenance and retrofit requirements, reduce costs, etc.

    - Risk control and mitigation

    - Life cycle management

  • Pre-seed or seed stage teams located in Europe

XLab Track

Our brand new XLab Track is designed to help entrepreneurial scientists in their transition from lab to market

XLab is a track within our XPRENEURS incubation program exclusively targeted at scientists across universities and research organizations willing to commercialize high-tech, complete their team and accelerate this process to take the leap towards entrepreneurship. XLab offers more flexibility through virtual modules, lower intensity than the main XPRENEURS track but for a longer period of time (5 months instead of 3).

Our entry requirements

  • A clear problem - solution fit addressing a relatively well sized market (e.g.: our epigenetic analysis software can identify nutritional deficiencies related to aging, thus helping young adult population change diets to lower their aging rate)

  • Team of minimum 2 people with complementary skills

  • Ideally close to a minimum viable product that has received feedback from first potential customers (depending on the technology field, un-tested prototypes will not fit, for example)

Why XLab


  • Flexible integration of program with other obligations

  • Demand-based support for the gradual transition from science to business (e.g for IP & strategy, customers & funding)

  • Exchange with other entrepreneurial scientistsacross research organizations

  • Focus on matchmaking: mentors, investors, co-founders & talent pools


  • Making venturing programs more accessible and relevant for scientists

  • Exchanging experiences and using synergies to create more spin-off success stories

  • Building strong & diverse teams that combine tech and business expertise and are embedded in a powerful ecosystem
