Success Stories


Celonis

Celonis has developed an intelligent big data technology, which precisely analyzes and visualizes processes within the company. In this way, weaknesses and thus processes are made transparent in a cost-effective and fast way. The three students of TU München, Martin Klenk, Bastian Nominacher and Alexander Rinke founded Celonis 2011 without foreign capital. A few years later, they had still not claimed any funding, but with 80 employees and SAP as a strong partner, Deloitte had voted them as the growth-strongest German tech company 2016. In 2017, they signed a million-strong financing of well-known American investors and business angels.

ParkHere

ParkHere developed a smart parking sensor system which detects free parking spaces and makes the information available to car drivers. The unique, self-powered technology needs neither cables nor batteries. The sensors are being sealed in the asphalt and generate their own power by energy harvesting. On the one hand, the energy is being used for the detection of the parking process and on the other hand for sending the information via mobile internet to the ParkHere database. ParkHere is a spin-off of TU München and has been advised and supported intensely by UnternehmerTUM in developing their product and building up the company. Two of the founders took part in the entrepreneurial qualification programme Manage&More. This was then followed by the lab course THINK.MAKE.START. and the Business Plan Advanced Seminar. Then the start-up made it to the accelerator TechFounders.

Metriko

Metriko analyses customer behaviour at permanent retail stores: How do customers move through the store? Where do they stop? And, what display areas do they go past? In order to answer these questions, the start-up examines the movement patterns of customers via smartphone and WLAN without collecting personal data. Using the information acquired, the trader can tailor their retail space and business processes to be in line with customer behaviour and systematically design their retail space and product range accordingly. In October 2015, Metriko won the 2015 Innovation Award (Innovationspreis) together with 10,000 euros in prize money.

Magazino

The start-up Magazino develops and builds robots for logistics enterprises. The team has begun with a packing station and commissioning machines for pharmacies. At present, the founders work on automated solutions for intelligent storage systems of the Industry 4.0. The storage robot “Toru” is supposed to work together with humans in a storage house and thus helps to increase the efficiency of the storage system, reduce costs, and lower the burden of physically demanding work for his human colleagues. Magazino was founded at TU München. From the beginning, the start-up was advised and supported intensely by UnternehmerTUM in founding and building up the company. In June 2015, the team could secure an investment by Siemens Innovative Venture. Meanwhile, Magazino employs 29 people.

ProGlove

The smart glove by ProGlove integrates a range of sensor technologies and combines them with scanning and wireless connectivity. The wearable enables workers in production, manufacturing and logistics to work faster, safer and easier. Thus increases efficiency and quality levels at the same time. During the accelerator programme TechFounders, ProGlove has taken advantage of intensive coaching and mentoring. The team has prepared itself for a first new venture round and has initiated strategic partnerships.

TIO

Rethinking an everyday product and optimizing its sustainability was the principal motivation behind the development of TIO, the innovative manual toothbrush. The resulting product demonstrates the founders concern for exceptional aesthetics and sustainable design without neglecting the fundamentals of proper dental care. The TIO toothbrush consists of bioplastics made from renewable resources. The packaging is part of the product and is limited to the minimum necessary. The user keeps the brush handle and replaces only the head. This reuse produces up to 70 percent less waste. Furthermore, the toothbrush, which is made in Germany, completely avoids plasticizers.

Konux

KONUX has developed an optical contactless measurement technology which serves the determination of various measurement categories. Based on this technology the start-up offers individual sensor solutions. The sensors are applied e.g. in the automotive industry and can determine the attitude angle of a vehicle. Other areas of applications are the measuring technology and mechanical and plant engineering. The measuring principle and the simple setting offers many advantages, like the high accurateness, the fast response time and the cost-efficient manufacturing. The team had already patented the technology and together with Fraunhofer IWU has manufactured a prototype.

NAVvIS

Navigation systems help to easily find your destination - if you have GPS reception, which is a problem in closed rooms. The team of NavVis has developed the first positioning system that performs as an app with realistic 3D images on mobile phones through corridors and rooms. In confusing buildings such as airports, hospitals and shopping centers, the app displays directional data and additional relevant information as "Augmented Reality".
