On Venture Capital

What we support is destined for greatness.



The 21st century is an era of great challenges. Regionally greatly differing growth of the world population is one of them. Another one is the increasing convergence of living standards of developing countries with those of developed countries - despite dwindling natural resources and looming climate change. 


Software / IT

The digital world is undergoing rapid and extensive changes as IT infrastructures transform and inexpensive and fast transmission capacities become available to many. Essentially, two overarching trends support these changes:


Industry 4.0

Automation and process technology is an interdisciplinary, crossover technology which significantly contributes productivity gains within existing industry and product sectors. It is this technology which makes the wide adoption of new high-tech applications possible in the first place (e.g. in the fields of micro and nano technology or alternative energy generation).


New Materials

Driven by short product lifecycles, trends for environmental sustainability as well as efforts in research and by high-value industries such as aviation or medical technology, the evolution of New Materials offers great potential for economic value creation.
