Who we are
The Bavarian Centers for Founders and Technology
are a political-economic tool for supporting innovative business foundations and self-sufficiency in the respective regions.
Our objective and task is to offer an optimal environment for the start-up and development of future orientated businesses, catering to the founders' and young businesses' needs.
This includes apart from inexpensive and flexible premises the shared use of infrastructure as well as extensive support and coaching capacities.
The Bavarian Centers for Founders and Technology act as interest representatives in a continuous dialogue with politics and associations in order to improve basic conditions for the establishment of new business enterprises.
The centers themselves are supported financially and predominantly run by local and publicly engaged partners.
There are three categories of Bavarian Centers for Founders and Technology:
- Local centers for founders distinguish themselves by a mix in lines of trade reaching from classical service sector businesses to foundations in trade to start-ups in high-tech businesses.
- Technology orientated centers for founders improve starting conditions for young high-tech companies and for the establishment of technologically ambitious new business enterprises in connection with research institutions.
- Subject-specific technology centers support young enterprises within certain technological areas like environment, biotechnology, logistics, energy, medicine, pharmaceutics etc.
All of the centers for founders and technology are run individually. Structure of cost, the offered infrastructure and service vary according to the requirements of the respective areas of technoloy and locational conditions.
The success of these centers for founders becomes apparent in the number of employees per company, which is more than twice as high after five years than in foundations operating outside the centers.
Even more significant is the rate of insolvency, which in a comparative period of time comes to an average of only 5-10% as opposed to more than 50% for foundations operating outside the centers.
