Dr. Robin Bürger, Promoter for Fraunhofer Venture
Dr. Robin Bürger, Head of the Innovation Financing Unit at the Fraunhofer Center for International Management and Knowledge Economy IMW, became a Fraunhofer Venture promoter in June 2017. In this function, he is the central point of contact for Fraunhofer IMW employees interested in learning more about Fraunhofer Venture's offerings and latest transfer instruments.
A central division of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft and partner of founders, start-ups, Fraunhofer institutes, industry and capital providers, Fraunhofer Venture coaches, advises and sponsors young scientists wishing to build their own companies using Fraunhofer technologies. "Thanks to Fraunhofer Venture, promising research results can find a well-structured path to the market and have a much higher probability of success than the market average," explains Dr. Bürger. As part of the BMBF-funded projects InnoFinanz, InnoTransMitt and Matching Concept, researchers from Fraunhofer IMW are already providing support to colleagues from Fraunhofer Venture. In planned future cooperation projects, perfectly suited matching instruments for improved knowledge and technology transfer will be jointly developed and tested beyond the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft.
