About our venture clienting program

We are constantly searching for new, innovative technologies, but also focus on continuous improvements of already existing technologies and methods. Therefore, we are searching for cooperation partners for innovative projects. We want to support up-and-coming companies in the fields of materials science, technology, and digitalization in their growth phase. At the same time, we want to build long-term collaborations with the participating companies.

The project can be a feasibility study, a product improvement, a transfer of laboratory results to large-scale processes or the implementation of a completely new product idea. Our experts will be on hand aiding you with technical expertise, resources, product and market know-how, as well as access to international customers.

On the pitch day, selected start-ups will be invited to present their ideas. They will also have the opportunity to exchange ideas with Elementar representatives and receive individual feedback. Afterwards, the most suitable partners for Elementar's current use cases will be commissioned for a pilot

The project phase will ca. take 3 months and begins with a joint kick-off to define a clear project goal with milestones and the preferred method of collaboration. During the project phase, our experts grant you access to selected Elementar assets and will be on hand with their expertise. Parallel to the project, a business case will be developed. The business case will be the basis for the decision, if both partners agree to a long-term cooperation after the demo day.

The teams, consisting of your team and the specialist departments of Elementar, will jointly present the results they have achieved during the venture clienting project. The demo day ends with a closing ceremony to celebrate the success of the venture clienting and, in particular, you who had the courage to join us and lead this project to success. Shortly after the demo day, the partners will decide, if the collaboration will result in a long-term cooperation.
