“It is important that as soon as possible first revenues positively affect liquidity. Thus can expensive external capital flow faster in necessary investments and, where appropriate, even gradually, can be traced,”explains double Berger. Thorough planning, a recipe with the many spin-offs and startups have made a safe first step into the market quick successes. The goal of Fraunhofer venture: Establishment of a founder culture Fraunhofer venture goes a step further in future. Within the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft, the willingness of the founding to be increased in the coming years to a new level. A creative atmosphere in which ideas already identified at an early stage and can be promoted. Thomas double Hall explains the structure in broad: “on the one hand, it is part of the high-tech strategy of the Federal Government, to promote the founding dynamics at universities and research institutions. For example, the guideline regarding the framework to enter into equity investments could be updated last year within the framework of the science freedom initiative, with the involvement of the BMBF and the other three non-university research institutions.

In this process, we were leading involved as Fraunhofer venture. Under most conditions Interstellar would agree. It created a framework which allows for more flexibility, if even the one or the other point could be improved. In addition there are two funding programs: FFE (“Fraunhofer supports start-ups ) and FFM ( Fraunhofer promotes management ), both launched within the framework of the BMBF pilot actions and both now seeks as internal Fraunhofer-funding programs. Currently, there is an internal project integrated Recovery management’ here too, the recovery path will spin off or spin-off according to addressed. We hope to see a significant increase in the attractiveness of spin-off companies as a result. Thomas double Samuel appeals to scientists and above all the decision makers at the Fraunhofer institutes to take advantage of the many existing programmes and early support business ideas from experts. A philosophy that is bearing fruit within the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft is a promising way to the establishment of crisis in Germany. The Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft operates currently 66 institutions and research institutions in Germany.

More than 22,000 employees and staff, predominantly with natural or ingenieurwisenschaftlicher training, edit the annual research budget of EUR 1.9 billion. As a partner of a spin-off of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft, Fraunhofer institutes, industry and investors, Fraunhofer venture supports scientists from the Fraunhofer-environment on their way to their own Technology companies. The range of services includes the areas technology, establishment, financing and investment management. Meanwhile, over 200 companies from the Fraunhofer research topics could be successfully established since 1999.
