Germany – not (yet) a start-up nation? New position paper by TransferAllianz

What does the German start-up scene need to become a vibrant environment for entrepreneurship? 

The “Gründungsprivileg” (founders’ privilege) to allow spin-offs to use their employee inventions independently is being discussed to push entrepreneurship in Germany forward. Scientists then were to exploit their inventions without the involvement of universities. But would Germany really be better off without this interaction? Lately, the TransferAllianz e.V. made its point clear in a position paper: We need #TechnologyTransferOffices (TTOs) to support technology transfer from science to industry. Without them, academic entrepreneurs will lack the support they urgently need to get their business off the ground!
