Start-ups - Wacker Chemie AG


What we offer

WACKER wants to support start-ups at any stage of their development. Here, our focus is on cooperations with young companies. Depending on the needs of a start-up to further develop its business, the type of cooperation can differ significantly. On the one hand, WACKER can support start-ups with its broad technology base and worldwide production and market know how, including scale-up and R&D. On the other hand, WACKER can act as a supplier, manufacturer or even customer of a start-up. We also have various examples where we have conducted joint research projects with young companies.

What we are looking for

We want to strengthen and expand our existing business divisions, as well as to develop new business areas and applications. Besides others, our focus is on life science, chemicals and digitalization. Close cooperations with young and innovative companies can be a stimulus for our business. Therefore WACKER is looking for any type of cooperation with innovative partners to further develop forward-looking innovations from ideation to market implementation. In selective partnerships we will jointly recognize, evaluate and promote future technologies.
