Study on the role of venture capital for the digitisation of the German “Mittelstand”

Titel: Community Workshop "Employment Law for Startups"

German mid-sized companies have to adjust or even transform their businesses in times of digitisation. Really do they?

What impact does the digital transformation really have on companies of the German “Mittelstand” (SMEs)? And what does secure their future viability in times when all aspects of live are affected by digital changes? A recently published study takes on these questions and specifically looks at the role venture capital plays in this context.

In cooperation with Deutsche Börse Venture Network and Fraunhofer Gesellschaft e.V. – Fraunhofer Venture, the Kompass Digital GmbH and Alphazirkel GmbH have published the joint study on this topic. The survey focuses on the digitisation and venture capital measures implemented by German family-owned mid-sized companies in 2017.
