Growth through start-up initiatives

How can cooperations with start-ups contribute to your own growth? We evaluate the relevance and innovative strength of suitable start-ups for established companies, e.g. medium-sized companies. This includes, among other things, smart screening of innovation ideas and teams, commercial due diligence and the creation of frameworks for strategic cooperation.

Our services

Our ecosystem

Our ecosystem

Our ecosystem consists of a number of co-investors and business angels, support programs organised by us (business plan competitions, expert networks and accelerator programs) and our own ecosystems, as well as a network of (currently) ten start-ups in which we have made corporate angel investments. Our customers can access this impressive ecosystem and its combined power of innovation at any time.

Screening & selection of relevant start-ups

Screening & selection of relevant start-ups

Have you prioritized innovation potential for your company and are faced with the challenge of deciding which start-ups you want to actively team up with? We screen potential start-ups with the help of AI-based systems and our extensive personal contacts in start-up ecosystems. Finally, using jointly developed guard rails and filter criteria, we identify ideal cooperation or participation targets, often directly from our network.

Structured venturing programs

Structured venturing programs

Have you identified suitable start-ups for cooperation or participation and would like to define the optimal framework for cooperation? Once the right start-up for a cooperation or participation has been found, we help you to assess the partner and create an attractive framework for the cooperation. This creates trust based on stable governance. And that paves the way for a successful business relationship.
