Light for health

A simple rapid test can be a life saver in the event of a suspected heart attack. Two years ago the Adlershof company Optricon presented an analyser for just this purpose. Utilising optical methods and microprocessor...

Proactive inspirers

Centre or outskirts? In this case it is a matter of interpretation. Martin Mahn is based in the city centre, on Ziegelstraße in Berlin-Mitte, and drives out at least once a week to the outskirts – to a new centre, the Adlershof Technology Park. Mahn, Managing Director of Humboldt Innovation, is convinced: “If Humboldt University with its key institutes had not moved here to Adlershof there would have been fewer spinoffs.”:

He explains: Setups are easy in Adlershof. If a location is to support the setup of new companies it is important that it can provide suitable space and areas in all phases of these companies’ development. In Berlin City...

Over the pond

“Whoever invents and produces a new kind of Spreewald gherkin does not have to go to America, but can stay on the regional market,” explained Prof. Dr. Dietmar Lerche. He himself sells four out of five devices abroad. Fifteen years ago he founded the company L.U.M. GmbH that develops new kinds of measuring methods and equipment, e.g. for the storage stability of paints, foodstuffs, and cosmetic products.:

Lerche is pleased: In the meantime his equipment has become the laboratory standard at a number of international groups. In other words it is used everywhere these groups develop and produce – distributed all over the...

Finding the right partner

“We won through in the end,” claimed Marco Köhler, Managing Director of Cruso Systems GmbH. This young startup has made a name for itself with the development of the first mobile GPS city guide for pedestrians. The road was not easy: The development of a technology and its first launch as a product are worlds apart. Although the Science City Adlershof, where “the Cruso” was born, was developed to a great extent with public funds, different rules apply to company founders.:

When faced with the two financing options – bank or venture capital – the Cruso team chose the latter. The founders of this spinoff from the Fraunhofer Institute for Computer Architecture and Software Engineering FIRST struck...

The next generation

Christian Scholz took the corporate helm faster than anybody had thought. His company, LTB Lasertechnik Berlin GmbH, is a leading capacity in the field of short pulse lasers for medicinal analysis, laser based measuring systems and high resolution spectrometers. His father founded it in 1990. Sören Schmahl does not consider himself second generation. Together with his father Wolfgang he started the Institute of Facility Management.:

Until 2008 LTB had five partners. When four business shares were offered for sale from mid 2007 father and son did not want to see the company fall into the hands of outside investors. Without further ado junior took the...

Founders never stop learning

“Raising a child is generally more challenging than creating a child”, this was the conclusion drawn by Inc., the US magazine for entrepreneurs – and the same goes for firms and products.:

Well, as a father of two sons and cofounder of a startup, I can imagine what the author is trying to tell us. In 2002 it was really a simple decision to found the company eagleyard Photonics GmbH: At last we had the...

Fresh meat guaranteed

The controller aims his scanner like a pistol at the joint of pork. The small yet subtle difference: He won’t be making any holes. Instead the laser light is reflected and returns a wealth of information on the condition of...
