Logo des HTGF (High-Tech Gründerfonds)

High-Tech Gründerfonds (HTGF) is a seed investor that finances high-potential, tech-driven start- ups. With EUR 892,5 million in total investment and an international network of partners, HTGF has already helped forge 500 start-ups since 2005. Driven by their expertise, entrepreneurial spirit and passion, its team of experienced investment managers and start-up experts help guide the development of young companies. HTGF’s focus is on high-tech start-ups in a range of sectors, including software, media, internet, hardware, automation, health care, chemicals and life sciences.

Investors in this public-private partnership include the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy, the KfW Banking Group, and Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft e.V., as well as a number of private companies.

High-Tech Gründerfonds and EXIST work together since many years. Many EXIST-funded teams receive a seed investment from HTGF.

This is mainly due to the particularly high level of market, management and technical risks of technology-based start-ups. Young technology companies and start-ups are therefore often exposed to financing difficulties. Therefore, with the High-Tech Gründerfonds (HTGF) in 2005 an instrument was created, that invests venture capital in newly founded German technology companies and thus contributing to the closure of existing in this early-stage segment financing gap. The High-Tech Gründerfonds is part of the "High-Tech Strategy" of the Federal Government.
