The Society of Friends of DLR presents the Horst Rauck Founder Award with the specific aim of acknowledging entrepreneurial spirit at DLR and recognising the courage and drive of spin-off founders. They are honoured for their innovative thinking, entrepreneurial approach and willingness to take risks in implementing a business idea based on DLR technology by setting up a spin-off company.
The focus is explicitly on young start-ups. Initial marketing may have taken place at the time of application, but products should not yet have been launched for series production. The company must have been founded for the purpose of transferring technology and expertise from DLR to market-ready products or services.
You can find the link to the call for applications here. For more information, please contact Technology Marketing directly.
The deadline for applications is 7 June 2019.
