As one of Europe's largest application-oriented research organisations, the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft stands for excellence in research. Fraunhofer supports the development of Fraunhofer spin-offs with a magnitude of an internal program. However, funding of the techology venture is a significant challenge at an early stage of the new venture formation state and comprises a significant success factor for technlogy transfer. With Fraunhofer Venture, investors get access to promising technology projects, but also diverse investment opportunities for technological superior spin-offs with a high readiness level. There is the possibility for a co-financing by Fraunhofer. Thereby, Fraunhofer Venture is the central contact for the investment portfolio of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft.
