Kooperationen mit Start-ups

Cooperations with Start-ups
Süleyman Sandikçi

Abstract

Aufgrund vielfältiger Entwicklungen in ihrem Umfeld müssen sich etablierte Unternehmen externen Wissensquellen öffnen, um Innovationen hervorzubringen. Im Rahmen von Corporate Venturing suchen sie dazu häufig einen Zugang zu Start-ups. Während Corporate Venturing kein neues Phänomen darstellt, erlebt es in den letzten Jahren einen Aufschwung. Dies zeigt sich etwa daran, dass viele DAX30-Unternehmen über Venture-Einheiten verfügen, um Kooperationen mit Startups zu betreiben. Anhand der Ergebnisse einer Unternehmensbefragung mit mehr als 400 Teilnehmern aus verschiedenen Branchen werden in diesem Beitrag die Motivation der Kooperationspartner und Technologieschwerpunkte von etablierten Unternehmen thematisiert.

Abstract

Due to diverse developments in their environment, established companies have to open up to external sources of knowledge in order to generate innovations. In the context of corporate venturing, they often seek access to start-ups. While corporate venturing is not a new phenomenon, it has experienced an upswing in recent years. This can be seen, for example, in the fact that many DAX30 companies have venture units to pursue cooperations with start-ups. Based on the results of a company survey with more than 400 participants from various industries, this article addresses the motivation of cooperation partners and technology priorities of established companies.
