Together. Successful.


With Wieland Ventures, we invest in young start-ups with new ideas and work with start-ups that help us to improve and keep Wieland's business and production processes up to date.


When investing in a start-up, we are interested in long-term cooperation because we want to achieve success together. We not only support you financially, but also offer you access to our comprehensive knowledge and wealth of experience - unlike a traditional financial investor.


For cooperation, we are looking for start-ups whose solutions will improve our products, corporate or production processes and make us more innovative in the future. If this is the case, we become your customer and offer you access to our functional divisions at over 60 locations worldwide.

We invest in solutions for

  • Thermotechnical challenges
  • E-Mobility
  • Recycling


We are looking for cooperations

with start-ups that have made sustainability their theme.

4 steps to Success


We have multiple ways of working with start-ups. Here are a few areas we can directly support you with.


We provide you with our deep knowledge and versatile options of our R&D in the field of material development, material processing and measuring and testing technology. Thus, your idea will be developed continuously.



We give you access to our worldwide production facilities and offices. But also on a case-by-case basis to our resources in the field of process management, production, sales and distribution as well as legal and patent matters. In this way you will have more time to focus on the technical and market development of your idea.


We are the link to important contacts. Our worldwide network helps you to develop your business idea. Worldwide, we are closely networked with our customers from a wide range of industries. Research institutions, universities, associations, cooperation partners and participants in the market are also part of our close network.
