Technological innovation is essential to a company’s lasting success. Nonetheless, R&D can be a lengthy process, and it demands substantial capital investments.

An innovation, like a technology, a material or processes you want to implement is eventually already existing or even in use in another industry or sector. Often these innovations are also in development by brilliant scientists from universities, institutes and start-up companies. The challenge is – How to identify them?

We at PK-Techventures identify substantial scientific and engineering advances that fit your company and your innovation/strategy project.

Our purpose is to fast-forward your R&D process and streamline your innovation projects. We help find the innovation of any kind for your project.

Whatever your company’s size, PK-Techventures is the shortest distance between business and tech, between wildly different sectors, between idea and realization.

Project Examples . excerpt

Pioneering innovation for the textile industry

Studies show that around 400,000 tons of textile waste are accumulated in Germany alone per year. To date, only a fraction of this figure is recycled because high-quality recycling of clothes was recently considered virtually impossible from a technical standpoint because more than 90% of textiles are made of different and mixed fibres. Thanks to its sophisticated in-house tool, PK-Techventures was, however, able to identify several promising technologies and methodologies.. These processes separate the blend of cotton and polyester, previously considered a no-go in terms of recycling, and then makes them recyclable as separate raw materials again.

What is it about?

We identified several type of methods to substatially reduce some toxid substances from more than 40 million litres of industral wastewater. The KPI to measure is called COD ( Chemical Oxygen Demand). Based on the findings and the technology clustering by our client decided on which technologies to be most feasible to have potential to reduce Lignin or long-chain organic compounds or lignosulfonates in their wastewater.

Case description

A client from an industrial business is operating several businesses while the size of each businesses havent been much in balance. The clients stratgy was to expand the the business areas not through organic grwoth but through an acquisition on an suitable company with a reasonable marketposition. Describing the M&A tagret candidate the same way like we do it for a technology gives us the profile, description and the requirements such a company need to provide.

Case description

It is a clear trend currently to replace used materials with more sustainable materials with biogradeability or an higher grade of recycling options. Our approach on this is divided into materials available already in several niches of startups or established businesses. More often we identify solution in this field in one of the hundreds of universities and institution we are screening for our projects.

What is it about?

Identification of potential JV or M&A candidates in the Nucleotide Extraction Kits & Reagents market.

Motivation of The Client
– Use the existing market access to cover the largest possible share of the $ 3 billion market
– Establish yourself as an end-to-end supplier in the nucleotide extraction market
– Exponential sales growth

The search focused on companies with a defined turnover that can offer the know-how on the one hand and kits and reagents ready for the market on the other.
In addition, we identified expired patents that can be commercialized through a collaboration or acquisition.
In order to show a longer-term perspective, we tracked new developments and approaches that promise medium-term development potential.
