Become an Inno.Wafer and benefit from a close cooperation
Together we make things happen
Innovation and Partnerships are part of Infineon‘s DNA. We walk the talk - together with startups we drive tomorrow‘s solutions. Our products address global challenges such as climate & demographic change, urbanization and digital transformation.
Become part of our startup cooperation program Inno.Wafer: The wafer is the symbol for the semiconductor industry. However, the innovations we are looking for go far beyond pure semiconductor technology. They are about the applications that you can build with our products, the software that complements them or the process efficiency that we can gain as a global corporation.
Join the Inno.Wafer now and have Infineon as your customer, supplier or business partner on your side!
Independently and in addition to a concrete cooperation we offer mentorships to interested startups active in hardware or embedded systems (see more info on mentorships below)
Dr. Reinhard Ploss, CEO Infineon Technologies, about the importance of a close cooperation with startups
"When you bringt two areas of competencies together, you may create much more than when you are going alone."
Why cooperate with Infineon?
We aspire to cooperate with startups in the following areas
Hardware based solutions: Infineon develops best-in-class sensors, power electronics, microcontrollers and security solutions for a broad range of areas as e.g. automotive, consumer & industrial products and energy distribution infrastructure. We seek startups that develop new hardware products that can leverage the unique capabilities of our products. examples of relevant topics
Semiconductor technology: Semiconductors is our core business. Are you a startup that works on technologies that enable next-generation semiconductors, e.g. GaN/SiC semiconductors, MEMS, or other innovative technologies?
Embedded Software: Next generation smart devices leverage an optimized combination of hardware and software. Infineon seeks startups that develop software which combined with our products enable new features. examples of relevant topics
Advanced productivity: Infineon has a global network of semiconductor fabs and a complex supply chain. Startups with solutions that improve the productivity and efficiency of our operations are in focus. Startups in this area ideally have already a first product on the market. examples of relevant topics
Check out how we will work together
Your startup aims for a scalable business model, based on a wholly-owned or licensed intellectual property? (Pure service providers, consulting & engineering companies are not in our focus)
Your startup is a legal entity (Inc., LLP, GmbH, etc.) from any country, that is majority-owned by its individual founders and its venture capital investors? Your startup has a full-time management and development team?
Are you active in one of the areas mentioned above?
It’s a match! Together we will drive tomorrow‘s solutions.
