AHEAD for entrepreneurs

AHEAD offers high-tech entrepreneurs access to 72 Fraunhofer Institutes with its 18,000 researchers, a partner network to other renowned research institutions and an expertise of more than 500 spin-offs - thus guaranteeing the next start-up project.

The aim is to supplement the pre-selected pool of spin-offs with experienced co-founders and to launch them together in an high-impact team with transparent processes and fair conditions for licenses and shareholdings.

In addition to our continuous support, we ensure the perfect match as well as the possibility to announce your idea and we are looking for a fitting match.
