From researcher to entrepreneur
The foundation and establishment of a successful company requires more than an innovative idea or technology.
As a partner of start-up companies, Fraunhofer institutes, the industrial sector and investors, we support foundation-willing scientists from the Fraunhofer environment with our know-how and utilize our network for a successful technology transfer.
July 10 will witness the "Munich Investment Forum" with an all-new concept at the Fraunhofer-Haus from 9.30 am to 5 pm. For the first time, the event initiated by Fraunhofer Venture will be hosted in cooperation with the Munich start-up centers CeTIM, LMU Entrepreneurship Center, Strascheg Center for Entrepreneurship and UnternehmerTUM. The motto "Invest in Science" defines the target: Potential investors should get inspired by the researchers' innovative start-up ideas. A trend presentation and an investor pitch will each introduce the four topics – online and offline, on the go and at home, health and medicine, energy and efficiency. After that, twelve spin-offs will compete for the favor of the investors on site before another innovation, the speed pitch, will have its premiere: 13 additional spin-off projects will introduce themselves in 90-second speed presentations. In an accompanying exhibition, the participating start-up enterprises present their developments.
