Empowering Investors

Commercializing cutting-edge research


As the largest research organization for application research in Europe, the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft stands for excellence in research. With a number of internal programs, Fraunhofer fosters the establishment of Fraunhofer spin-offs. Financing a technology company often remains the greatest challenge of the start-up phase and is an essential success factor for technology transfer.

With Fraunhofer Venture, investors gain access to promising technology projects at a very early stage, but also to versatile investment options in extraordinary technology spin-offs of a high maturity, with the possible option of co-financing by Fraunhofer. Fraunhofer Venture is the central point of contact for the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft investment portfolio.
