Open Innovation & Entrepreneurship
Sartorius supports creative technologies and businesses to foster entrepreneurship and cultivate innovation. We invite students, academics, universities, start-ups and established companies to reach out and explore the various options and resources of cooperation that Sartorius provides to advance ideas and endow these with economic value. How can Sartorius support you?
"An open innovation culture and entrepreneurship go hand in hand and are the means by which Sartorius develops and collaborates on new ideas as well as future business and services opportunities. No innovation happens from scratch alone; therefore, flexibility and openness are key to applying creative changes at an early stage and at a small scale."
