For you, we scout for the right funding programs at state, federal and EU level. Since 2010, we have raised more than 150 million € in funding for our partners. Please find an overview of current tenders here.
We are directly linked to partners in industry, research, healthcare and politics. We establish suitable contracts for you and accompany cooperation meetings.

If you are looking for suitable founding partners for your idea or start-up, we can co-found start-ups as a “company maker” through Medical Valley GmbH. This means, for example, if you are a doctor or researcher, have ideas that can be commercialized, but you wish to remain a doctor or researcher, we can – in selected cases -, jointly found a start-up. In the last three years we have actively participated in three medical technology start-ups and have taken over management issues.

To successfully launch your medical device on the market, a precise and accurate planning of certification strategies is indispensable. We will provide guidance to help you find the right person for the certification of your product. Moreover, we also can help you with transferring reimbursement costs. We are affiliated with numerous public and private health insurance companies in Germany and offer unique medical, technical and health economic validation possibilities with our dmac (Digital Medical Application Center).

Are you looking for a way to find access to international markets for your product? We make sure that you don’t have to go down this road alone by determining potential markets in advance and making the relevant basic conditions transparent. Market analysis, conception of admission strategies and delegation visits help you to develop a comprehensive understanding of the opportunities and challenges of the target country. If you, as a foreign company, are interested in entering the German market, we are also there to assist you. We can provide you with essential information about the German market and the healthcare system and work out the optimal soft-landing plan together with you.
Are you looking for impulses, inspiration, answers or the right questions? If you don’t know what you need to bring your start-up forward or if you are interested in topics that are not listed here, please, feel free to contact us.
