Promoting Innovation and Growth

Developing innovations that are to be established in the market as new products or processes requires a very special kind of know-how. This often involves complex processes and sometimes it is a question of finding the right partner in the right phase. The innovation process has to be accompanied by a management system tailored to suit your business enterprise and has to have the right resources – both human and financial. Targeted support is also required in safeguarding and exploiting property rights that may arise. Here we can provide you with individual advice on the many financing and funding possibilities. From the original idea to the complete realisation of your project you can always rely on us to find the right counselling and coaching. 

Our workshops and information events on innovation provide useful further education and an opportunity to extend your networks.

  • Protecting ideas

    New products, processes and services ensure long durability and competitiveness of your company or start-up. However, often new ideas and developments are on a legal basis not sufficiently protected or not protected at all. If that is the case, the inventor cannot ensure that his innovation may only be used by his company and cannot secure his competitive advantage. more »
