Starting up with technology. The innovative power of new business enterprises.

A Technology Region does not just appear out of thin air. Nor can it hold its own without using the power of new technological ideas, the latest findings from
the field of science and research or new processes
as the basis for 
establishing new companies.
And exactly that is what is so special about the
Aachen Region. Here – with our help – science
can become business. AGIT specialises in 
providing support for technology-oriented
start-up companies.

Euregional Business Angels Network euBAn

The Euregional Business Angels Network euBAn brings private investors – Business Angels – and young business enterprises together. A special feature is the possibility of support by business angels from our neighbouring countries, Belgium and the Netherlands. A private investor from Belgium can help a German or Dutch company to find its feet in the French-speaking market or vice-versa. This way, the business enterprises are internationalised at an early stage so that they can hold their own in the global competition.

Alternative funding resources

Apart from support programmes, young enterprises can also revert to alternative funding resources such as venture capital or private financing. We will help you in contacting venture capital companies or the business angels networks. Just ask us.

Here is a brief overview of alternative funding resources.

Early stage financing

As a coach in the high-tech start-up fund agency, High-Tech Gründerfond, we support enterprises in the initial phase of actual capital acquisition.

The Seed Fonds der NRW.Bank invests venture capital in young technology companies with good prospects in finding business applications for promising research results.

RWTH Aachen University and the Chamber of Commerce Aachen have set up a start-up initiative, GründerStart-Initiative, to professionalize high-growth business ideas as quickly as possible. There are various measures to support start-up ideas with good prospects. More information on the initiative can be found at IHK Aachen or  RWTH Aachen University.

We also have close contacts to various venture capital companies who participate in young, technology-oriented companies. Contact us.
