Fraunhofer techbridge supporting early stage tech startups problem
Fraunhofer TechBridge: Supporting Early-stage Tech StartupsProblem:

Solution:

We scope and execute projects to develop or de-risk early-stage technologies using Fraunhofer expertise (e.g., prototyping, testing, modeling, demonstration, road-mapping).

Early-stage tech startups lack resources & expertise for prototyping, testing, piloting, etc. …

But investors & industry partners need technical validation to invest or partner.


Fraunhofer techbridge how it works
Fraunhofer TechBridge: How it Works

1

  • Funding: We raise funds from external sources to perform work on behalf of startups. We take no equity or cash from the startups.

  • Selection & Evaluation: We request proposals from the startup community. Technologies are evaluated by the TechBridge team and Fraunhofer domain experts.

  • Technical Project Work: The TechBridge team works with technical group leads to develop targeted projects to develop or de-risk selected technologies. Reports are provided at project completion.

  • Intellectual Property (IP): Startups’ IP is fully protected. Startup has option to license any IP developed during a Fraunhofer project
