Future chal­lenges can­not be over­come sim­ply by an incre­men­tal improve­ment of today’s tech­nol­o­gy. Fac­ing the yet unknown threats of the next 100 years urgent­ly demands open-mind­ed think­ing, rad­i­cal new ideas and rev­o­lu­tion­ary tech­nolo­gies. We are strong­ly con­vinced, that we do not only have the right tech­nol­o­gy, but also the right team: com­pe­tent, enthu­si­as­tic and vision­ary.

What Drives Us

How does tech­nol­o­gy dri­ve us? The answer is sim­ple: We love tech­nol­o­gy. Rein­vent­ing the wheel might not be nec­es­sary, but it’s big fun. Is there any­thing more excit­ing than being right in the eye of a tech­nol­o­gog­i­cal rev­o­lu­tion cyclone? We don’t think so. Fur­ther­more, we believe in the strong cor­re­la­tion of the whole tech­no­log­i­cal val­ue chain from fun­da­men­tal research to end cus­tomer prod­ucts.

While this is often an infla­tion­ary and emp­ty key­word, we are not only dri­ven by the social impact of our busi­ness, but we also pro­vide a tech­nol­o­gy able to real­ly make a dif­fer­ence. We do our best to max­i­mize the broad pros­per­i­ty all around the globe, because we believe that human kind needs more than evo­lu­tion­ary tech­nolo­gies for solv­ing the future chal­lenges.

While busi­ness often appears to be a tool of cap­i­tal­ism, it is also a pow­er­ful tool of social and evi­ron­men­tal respect. We are con­vinced, that cor­po­ra­tions are respon­si­ble for their employ­ees and the soci­ety around them. There­fore, we want to be lead­ing in equal rights, free speach as well as in a con­sid­er­ate exploita­tion of all ressources with­in our team and our part­ner net­work. We codemn the exploita­tion of labor and ecol­o­gy along our upstream val­ue chain. In our eyes holis­tic reson­si­bil­i­ty and sus­tain­abil­i­ty are key suc­cess fac­tors.
