Digitisation and innovation have become increasingly important in all sectors in recent years. Germany has a lot of catching up to do, especially in the area of digitisation, which is also evident in international comparisons, such as the EU's Digitisation Index.

Smart solutions are needed to drive digitisation and innovation forward. Young and innovative start-ups from Germany and Europe are among the pioneers in the development of new technologies and business models - they are agile, innovative, disruptive and can change entire industries in the long term. Especially in the start-up and growth phase, start-ups need intensive support and financial resources to be able to scale successfully. The German government wants to start precisely there and has adopted a comprehensive start-up policy in the coalition agreement. The focus is on both the expansion of growth financing and the reduction of regulatory hurdles. In addition, new and existing concepts and instruments for the promotion of innovation and growth of start-ups are to be further developed and implemented.

We advise the public sector on the promotion of start-ups.

Multidisciplinary competencies of KPMG enable a modular and needs-based offer. KPMG Venture Services has been supporting young and innovative companies in all business management issues for over a decade - from foundation to growth, from the first round of financing to exit. Our expertise is complemented by our many years of experience in advising the public sector, particularly in the design and implementation of digitalisation projects.
