Do You Have a Business Idea? Then Talk to Us!

If you have a technology-based business idea, please call us or send us an email. We will be happy to start an initial discussion. Together with you we explore the scientific and economic feasibility of the concept you present to us and discuss possible modifications if useful. Moreover we can support you in developing a first draft of your business concept and help you to optimize your concept as sparring partner. You benefit from our experience and we provide you with relevant contacts.

In addition, we assist you with the detailed business and finance planning as well as with all aspects of founding and financing. Apart from providing data on markets and competition, we also provide valuable support in the fundraising process and to find experienced management.

While your enterprise is developing, we continue to accompany you as consultants, e.g. in developing your strategy, and in the search for cooperation partners, customers, or additional investors. In some companies, we also participate on the board.

The key determinants of our success are our practical experience and our broad network of investors and highly skilled external experts.

By the way – we are an accredited coach of the High-Tech Gründerfonds (HTGF). Young technology-oriented companies can apply for seed financing of up to €500,000 from the fund. As an official coach we can also provide support requested by the HTGF.

Please note that our services are only available to scientists from Max Planck Institutes.
