Spin-offs


DLR supports business enterprises founded by its employees who, acting as entrepreneurs, intend to serve the market with products and services based on DLR technologies. While a spin-off company is being set up, we advise our institutes and the potential founders about how to shape and focus their business plan, support them in formulating their business ideas and help them obtain funding from, for example, the Helmholtz Enterprise Fund, and, where appropriate, provide internal funds for the development or validation of technologies for particular applications. Whenever DLR is convinced by such a business concept, we arrange for co-operation between the DLR institutes involved and the new spin-off and facilitate contacts with investors, such as the High-tech Start-up Fund, to secure the funding of the enterprise, which will become a DLR licensee. Particularly in the start-up phase, young enterprises with portfolios in the high-technology sector are confronted by great challenges. To avoid any need for big up-front investments in plant and equipment etc., companies are offered the use of DLR's own infrastructure. Where strategically important subjects are concerned, DLR may occasionally even consider acquiring an interest in a spin-off company under company law. Having a spin-off as partner enables DRL to speed up the practical application of its research findings, thus securing recognition of the appropriateness of related research spending.
