Innovation Financing

Digitalization is shaping social and economic life in all areas and opening up new opportunities for the active participation of society in innovation processes, among others through crowd-based methods such as crowdsourcing and crowdfunding.

These methods provide companies and organizations with the opportunity to involve their customer groups as an active crowd in the co-design and – if required – also in the financing of their products and services at an early stage.

Mission

Our mission is to introduce companies, research institutions and other organizations to the potential of crowdsourcing and crowdfunding. In doing so, we empower them towards a demand-oriented use of the instruments, e.g. via our proven crowdsourcing offer “Technology seeks application“ and through practical knowledge from successfully accompanied crowdfunding campaigns in the fields of science, regional development and sports.

In our interdisciplinary and international team, experts from the disciplines of economics and social sciences work to continuously develop practical solutions for clients of companies and other institutions.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Crowd Innovation: Potential for researchers at Fraunhofer and companies

The development and implementation of innovations can benefit in many ways from the involvement of society in research processes. 

With its Crowd Innovation platform, Fraunhofer IMW explores the potential of crowdsourcing for research and enables researchers to receive fresh impulses and ideas to further develop their technologies.

The platform also offers companies the opportunity to search for solutions together with Fraunhofer researchers, thereby laying a foundation for further collaborations.
