Technology transfer through spin-offs
Spin-offs contribute substantially to the implementation of outstanding research results in new products and services. The aim of Fraunhofer Venture is to activate and maximize the transfer potential of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft by actively bringing together technology transfer concepts, business models, start-up teams, IP resources, and investors.
In this context, Fraunhofer Venture acts as a central point of contact for all questions regarding spin-off and investment, accompanies the spin-off process with experienced coaches, supports by supplying subsidies, and therefore helps to tap additional transfer potentials. Spin-offs do not only open up the possibility for additional R&D cooperation; license, dividend, and exit proceeds offer opportunities for further research.
