Clean- & Greentech
The cleantech and greentech sector offers enormous opportunities for (new) start-ups. Innovative ideas in recycling and the circular economy can conserve valuable resources and minimize the environmental impact. Effective sustainability controlling, which includes the reform of corporate sustainability reporting in the European Union (CSRD) and ESG strategies, is crucial. In this way, we can maximize the success of the business models whilst also making an important contribution to society. Let’s combine profitability and sustainability together.
Automation & Digitalization
The robotics and mechanical engineering sector offers enormous potential thanks to its automation, digitalization, machine learning, and artificial intelligence. Industry 4.0, sensors, and accessibility play a central role here. Automation reduces costs and increases productivity. Machine learning and artificial intelligence enable autonomous decisions and error minimization. Industry 4.0 integrates digital technology and enables real-time data analysis. Sensors are essential in order to perceive the environment and the condition of the machines. Accessibility promotes acceptance and dissemination. One thing is certain: innovative solutions are the key to success in the dynamic robotics and mechanical engineering industry.
Innovative Materials & Manufacturing Processes
Innovative materials and manufacturing processes have played an important role in the industry in recent years. We are focusing in particular on additive manufacturing processes and materials that are crucial for the use and generation of renewable energies. Rare-earth elements, for example, play a key role in the production of electrical energy. We see great opportunities in the environmentally conscious use and recycling of raw materials of this type. Additive manufacturing processes have revolutionized the way products are manufactured in recent years. They have also greatly expanded the possibilities for product design and specific optimizations. We see great opportunities for the future in this area, too. After all, the combination of technological progress and sustainable thinking promotes the sustainable development of our society. We want to play an active role in shaping the future.
