Accelerate your business
We are convinced that joint research and development makes innovations faster and better. As a global company, we use our extensive expertise in various technologies and our access to a large number of markets not only to promote our innovation work within the Group, but also to launch new innovations in cooperation with external partners. That's why we have founded the Heraeus Accelerator Programm for start-ups. But we are equally very interested in partnerships with other companies, research networks and universities worldwide.
The Heraeus Accelerator was launched in 2019. Our goal is 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 start-ups.
We are constantly searching start-ups working on material solutions for the 21st century. Tomorrow's customers expect a well-coordinated offering that combines materials with value-added data and services.
The Accelerator program gives both, start-ups and Heraeus, the opportunity to explore strategic partnerships within a structured framework. After a thorough selection process, the most promising collaboration ideas are chosen and tested in joint projects.
