With the aim of constantly improving the framework and range of services of Fraunhofer Venture we initiate transfer-oriented projects supported by the BMBF (Federal Ministry of Education and Research).

The main objective of these projects is to closely coordinate and connect our development programs. Furthermore they are to validate whether the established development programs (Business Ideation, FDays®, FFE, and FFM) really meet the needs of Fraunhofer institutes and founders or whether additional support measures are reasonable and necessary.
