The OGTC, Scottish Enterprise and Scottish Development International invite you to hear how TechX can accelerate your business into the energy industry.
TechX, the new technology accelerator from the Oil & Gas Technology Centre in Aberdeen, was launched in December 2017 to help smaller, ambitious technology developers take their solutions to the oil and gas market – faster.
The TechX Pioneer programme is for start-ups with new technology ideas and provides an intense 16-week accelerator, game-changing funding – with up to £100,000 available and a 12-month incubator. Small and medium-sized companies from all sectors can benefit from the Market Entry programme, which offers up to £500,000 funding and unrivalled access to customers to help SMEs fast track a route to market.
Participants on both programmes benefit from the support of experienced business mentors, co-working space, forward-thinking business partners, rapid prototyping, test facilities, large scale field trials, and showcase events.
What’s more, TechX requires no equity or payback, and the developer retains all intellectual property.
Links to the online application forms can be found on the TechX webpage.

Take the next step and accelerate your business into the energy industry.Interest is welcomed for all sessions from:
Pioneers TechX is looking for entrepreneurial start-up companies who are interested in receiving feedback on their technology from established Oil & Gas firms to help refine their product’s feature set. We will work with you to develop your firm’s business model, provide funding to create a minimum viable product, and provide access to the market. Our ambition is to help your business scale-up and grow, focusing on technologies that can help realise the full potential of the United Kingdom Continental Shelf, maximising economic recovery of the remaining oil and gas reserves.
Market Entry TechX is primarily looking to work with SMEs from sectors outside of Oil & Gas, but not exclusively. The Market Entry Programme is designed to take existing technologies from other sectors and adapt them for the industry where an application has been identified. For Oil & Gas firms, TechX will facilitate trials with Operators, enabling the product to increase its technology readiness level, resulting in the technology being proven.
Partners TechX is seeking partners from industry that want to engage with our startups and SMEs, providing them access to your organisation’s experts. In turn, providing your organisation with exposure to some of the most exciting early stage companies in Oil & Gas.
Investors Many of the startup firms graduating from our TechX Pioneer Programme will be seeking investment to help them scale. The Oil Industry is global in nature, and we are keen to support broader internationalisation efforts. Interested investors are encouraged to get in contact with The OGTC and can be invited to our demonstration day towards the end of the programme to meet the startups.
