Why does startup foundation/ corporate spin-off help in my innovation process?
If you don’t want to integrate startup culture into your company, you can create a spin-off which solves complementary tasks to your main business. Companies like Daimler or Bayer have corporate entrepreneurship programs and venture capital to invest in smart minds and concepts. With the Ambivation corporate spin-off program we support you in founding your own startup.
When is a corporate spin-off viable for my company?
You have employees who need more responsibility and freedom.
There is not the perfect startup you want to invest in.
You want to try out a new business model without your branding.

Other Innovative Approaches
You can of course found your own company, but a spin-off often makes sense if you: 1. want to protect your brand and need a unit to test something new. 2. you have employees who need a different work culture and different incentives to perform best for you. 3. you want to diversify your risk and compete with other startups.
You can participate in startups, but it happens that there is no startup in your market segment that is “mature” enough.
