(VentureCapital Magazine Special Edition "Startup 2010", October 2009)
October 5, 2009
Midwife, surgeon, gravedigger – it’s a cliché to say that no matter what happens the lawyer always makes a buck. But how can you utilize an attorney’s services and of what kind of cloth should he or she be cut to generate the maximum benefit in the delicate interplay between start-up company and investors? Which attributes do attorneys possess, and how do they use them to influence the various situations a start-up faces?

Technology Start-ups – Too Much of a Risk!?
How early-stage technology funds really have to look to be successful
(VentureCapital Magazine, Special Issue "Tech-Guide 2009")
July 14, 2009
It’s a topsy-turvy world: The big private equity guys are berated for being ‘locusts’ and are supposed to be responsible for the capital market crisis, while the early-stage VCs are the ‘honey bees’. But apparently, the honey isn’t very sweet: Investors are still being drawn to later-stage buyouts and, with a few exceptions, are steering well clear of early- stage VCs.

Germany is a great country for venture capital investors.

European buyout market left standing in 2008 - Debt and equity parted company in 2008
February 11, 2009
Last year stands out as the year in which the concept of the leveraged buyout was deconstructed and its resilience called into question. The protective mantle of the credit boom, which helped the European buyout industry to raise $172bn (€130bn) between 2006 and 2008, according to research house Preqin, was thrown off as the availability of debt and equity fell devastatingly out of step.
High-end customers, mission-critical applications and operative pitfalls
October 30, 2008
Let's be clear: Medical technology is not "biotech light", and is not for Web 2.0 investors who want to get a taste of a little more technology. Medical technology is complex on a number of levels; the customers are extremely demanding, applications are often matters of life or death, and the market is highly professional, in an environment of very conservative private and public contractors.
Public launch financing or professional investors?
August 4, 2008
The good news is, the start-up scene is gaining momentum again, and a spirit of optimism prevails. The bad news is, even high-potential start-ups are doomed after one or two years, even though they could have generated one to two million in sales, just because they get involved with the wrong financing structure! What lies in store for start-ups, and what should they consider?

The following article is intended to explain why certain aspects of IPR are so important from a VC, and hence business, perspective and why you need to pay attention to them!

September 25, 2006

The Connection between Technology and Success...or Why High-Tech Isn’t Always High-Tech
Value(= success) = freedom to operate x origin x management x investment strategy x market x hype? Is the formula too long? Can we determine the value of a technology in advance? What does the “high” in high-tech mean anyway? That the non-technical among us are awestruck by it, because we don’t understand it? Or are there more objective yardsticks? Can we earn more money the “higher” the technology is? The answers to these and other questions, below, are designed to guide company founders, VCs and fund investors through the technology jungle.
