Our corporate venture capital activities are a special way of networking and a strategic complement to our R&D. They give us an insight into innovative technologies and business activities aligned to our growth strategy at a very early stage of development. Evonik has committed €100 million to venture capital, and since formation in 2012 Evonik Venture Capital continues to invest in promising start-ups. Annually more around 500 potential candidates are examined.. This is where the proposed partnerships surpass purely financial considerations. Evonik supports start-ups with its know-how and infrastructure, and in return, hopes to receive inspiration for its own innovation work.
