Workshop for Fraunhofer-startup tandems and entrepreneurs

Are you an entrepreneur and have already established contact with a Fraunhofer Institute, that is interested in realizing your idea?

Are you a start-up already working with a Fraunhofer Institute in order to bring your product based on Fraunhofer technology to the market?

Or are you a Fraunhofer researcher working together with a start-up?

Then join the AHEAD Pull-Workshop!

Entrepreneurs and start-ups have the opportunity to create a suitable solution based on Fraunhofer technology for their concepts and products supported by AHEAD.

AHEAD supports entrepreneurs and start-ups to bring - together with Fraunhofer researchers - innovative high-tech solutions to market.

In order to evaluate whether and in what form this constellation can be supported by AHEAD, Fraunhofer Venture offers a virtual info workshop on July 13, 2020.

In addition to the individual evaluation of the projects with regard to AHEAD readiness, we will not only explain the AHEAD program in more detail, but also provide tools and further information to make a joint project with Fraunhofer successful from the very beginning.


Participation requirements:

  • The pull workshop is only for participants who have already found a startup or institute to work with!
  • Both parties (Fraunhofer & Startup) are required to participate in the workshop together.
  • The Fraunhofer technology should be essential for the startup's product. If you are not able to evaluate this at this point in time, we will figure it out during the workshop.
  • Participation is free.
