(Stuttgart/Tübingen/Bonn) – High-Tech Gründerfonds is investing EUR 600,000 in Reutlingen-based SIGNATOPE GmbH. SIGNATOPE will use the funds to advance the development of its unique biomarker assay system, that has been established to support pharmaceutical research. The technology is based on special antibodies and allows the early detection of possible side effects during the drug development process. Thereby, the need for animal testing will be reduced while the drug becomes safer and the process more cost-efficient. SIGNATOPE has already secured a number of renowned companies as clients of the new technique.

Before new drugs get approval they are subjected to comprehensive tests in cell culture and animal models to assess their efficacy and toxicity. The biomarker assays developed by SIGNATOPE are able to detect organ damage and drug side effects. As biomarkers might differ between humans and animal models, to date a multitude of tests have been applied for this analysis. During phase I of the GO-Bio program, which is being funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research, the team at the NMI Natural and Medical Sciences Institute at the University of Tübingen developed a novel technique, which quantifies relevant biomarkers not only in humans but also across a wide variety of species. „Our technique delivers quantitatively comparable data, regardless of the selected test model. We are able to detect even the tiniest amount of biomarkers in urine and blood samples. This helps to cut down significantly on time and costs with respect to drug development,“ explains Oliver Pötz, CEO at SIGNATOPE.

As a major German seed stage investor, HTGF sees huge potential in the new approach devised by the Reutlingen researchers. „The team really impressed us with this pioneering technology. In comparison to traditional histopathological techniques involving tissue sections, non-invasive biomarker assays are becoming increasingly relevant in the development of new drugs,“ explains Dr. Lena Krzyzak, Investment Manager at HTGF.

SIGNATOPE was founded by scientists Hannes Planatscher, Thomas Joos, Octavian Schatz and Oliver Pötz, together with the NMI. „As a business-minded incubator, the NMI is the nucleus behind many successful start-ups,“ explains Dr. Klaus Eichenberg, Managing Director of BioRegio STERN Management GmbH. „It is a good example of how to fuse innovative research with successful business in the region.“

Creditunion-Domains – the Domains of Trust

Creditunion-Domains - the Domains of Trust

Creditunions worldwide have a better image than other banks (Source: dimitrisvetsikas)

The Sunrise Period of the Creditunion-Domains lasts till 3rd June 2017. Interested parties for the Sunrise Period of Creditunion-Domains have to register at the trademark clearinghouse.

Why Creditunion-Domains? The Creditunion-Domains are the trustworthy domains which can be registered by creditunions only.

The mission of Creditunion-Domains is „to provide a trusted, hierarchical, and intuitive namespace for entities that have a meaningful nexus with the credit union sector. Such entities include but are not limited to, credit unions, credit union trade associations and leagues, credit union service organizations, regulatory bodies, and entities offering products and services aimed primarily at credit unions.“

The Creditunion-Domains are „promoting a safe eco-system for the credit union sector by providing best in class safeguards that will evolve over time, continuing to incorporate additional security and other safeguards as necessary.“

The relationship between better ranking and the new top-level domains was proved by a study of Searchmetrics for Berlin-domains. Websites with Berlin-Domains frequently place better than websites with .de domains and .com domains in regional searches with Google. The result of the study by Searchmetrics can be summarized as follows:

„42% of searches show that .berlin domains rank better locally .“

A study of Total Websites in Houston shows that the results by Searchmetrics can be generalized to all new top level domains, including the Creditunion-Domains: It was proved that Google uses the domain endings of the New Top Level Domains as a key element for the assessment of domains. Total Websites draws as a conclusion:

„It is clear that the new top-level domains improve the ranking in search engines.“

Customers, who are interested at the Creditunion-Domains, are also interested in many cases at the Bank-Domains.

Together with the Machines

PRUFTECHNIK celebrates 45 years customer centricity

Together with the Machines

Industry 4.0 and IoT have been dominating the industrial space in 2017. „So far, these have been merely buzzwords,“ counters Dr. Sebastian Busch, Managing Director of PRUFTECHNIK AG. „However, our customers have changed in the last 45 years – that is correct. They are not linear anymore,“ Busch continues. However, PRUFTECHNIK“s path has always been linear for more than four decades now – always ahead as innovative driver, market leader, and providing a direct link between customer and solution. On the company“s 45th anniversary, we are traveling in time with you and open the door into the future.

From the first simple ideas to today“s user-friendly, cloud-based measuring devices, PRUFTECHNIK“s image has changed drastically. The living room in Schwabing, Munich, where the first devices were produced, has long been replaced with a high-tech production line based on lean management in Ismaning (to the north of Munich). The company-owned premises do not only accommodate Production, but also, among others an in-house R&D department (hard- and software), Quality Management, Sales and Sales Support, Product Management, Marketing, Logistics, Service and Tech Support. At the same time, PRUFTECHNIK has its own branch offices in 18 countries worldwide and agents and distributors in 70 additional countries – we are as close to the customer as possible.

To maintain the service, support, and sales quality at the highest level possible, PRUFTECHNIK continuously invests in the development of new company-owned branch offices. We are currently completing the new offices in Wroclaw (Poland), which also accommodates a part of PRUFTECHNIK“s development efforts. Another new building has started in St. Petersburg for the Russian sales and service subsidiary. Furthermore, two new offices were opened in the past two years in the US. The Philadelphia headquarters manage the operations of the North American market with area-covering sales and service partners.

PRUFTECHNIK has always focused on the customer, rather than on the product itself. „We must understand our customers and their problems every single day and offer them sustainable and customized solutions,“ explains Dr. Busch. „Simultaneously, the demand for our expertise is constantly growing. Selling products is only a part of our business. Our maintenance services have long gained their own importance in providing holistic solutions,“ says the Managing Director, who manages the company in the second generation.

The variety of industry awards PRUFTECHNIK has won for its products in the last decades is another testament to the importance of staying close to the costumer. PRUFTECHNIK is and remains state of the art! Several products have been nominated for further awards in 2017. The innovative VIBGUARD Online Condition Monitoring System is one of the frontrunners for the renowned US-American „Maintenance Solution Awards“. Out of more than 500 products, ROTALIGN received mid of April the Finalist Certificate of the „Industry Award 2017“ of Huber Verlag (Huber Publishing House).

In 45 years, PRUFTECHNIK has advanced from optics and hardware producer to electronics and software expert, focusing then and now on the wishes and needs of the customer. And this can also be applied as our motto for the future: „We must stay close to our customers,“ explains Dr. Sebastian Busch.

About PRUFTECHNIK:
The PRUFTECHNIK group, with subsidiaries and partners in more than 70 countries worldwide, is continuing to set new standards with innovative technical developments in the sectors of machine laser alignment, condition monitoring and nondestructive testing to maximize and optimize machine and plant availability and to secure product quality.

Giant Krugerrand: Heavyweight Gold Coins for the Jubilee Year

Mega coins of gold weighing up to 1.6 kilograms and new silver and platinum Krugerrand coins

Giant Krugerrand: Heavyweight Gold Coins for the Jubilee Year

50oz Gold Krugerrand Jubilee Edition (Source: South African Mint)

Johannesburg, South Africa, 10 May 2017 – On the occasion of its 50th anniversary, the world’s most popular and best-selling investment coin, the South African Krugerrand, has been manufactured for the first time in extraordinary weight units and in various precious metals. An impressive Krugerrand coin in 50-ounce weighing approximately 1.6 kilograms, is the flagship of the anniversary range of Krugerrands. This special coin is strictly limited to only 50 individual units, and will also be available as part of five highly exclusive anniversary sets. The pure material value of these special items amounts to EUR 57.987 Euro (as at 10 May 2017: day’s gold price at 36.241,93 EUR/ kg).

Also available for the first time in the gold Krugerrand range, is a special 5-ounce gold coin, limited to 500 pieces with a material value of more than EUR 5.000,-; a 1/20 ounce coin limited to 12,000 units and a 1/50 gold coin limited to 50,000 units. These new gold coins are in addition to the standard 1 ounce, one half ounce, one fourth ounce gold Krugerrands.

For the first time since 1967, the Krugerrand is now also available in metals other than gold: fine silver and fine platinum (also in limited quantities). These new coins are issued only in 1 ounce of either metal and are regarded as popular for collectors due to their limited quantities.

All Krugerrand coins in the jubilee year bear the characteristic design of the South African springbok on the front side, and the portrait of Paul Kruger as well as the country of origin in Afrikaans („Suid Afrika“) and English („South Africa“) on the back. The collectible Krugerrand coins all bear a special anniversary privy mark „1967-2017 50 Year Anniversary“, adding to their collectability.

Rand Refinery and the South African Mint produce the bullion Krugerrand in South Africa. Rand Refinery has refined nearly 50,000 tons of gold, around one third of the gold ever produced worldwide. The Rand Refinery was founded in 1920 by the Chamber of Mines in Germiston, South Africa to process raw gold mined around Johannesburg, marketing it around the world. The firm now processes approximately all gold mined in South Africa and a substantial share of gold mined in the rest of Africa. In addition to the world-famous Krugerrand gold coin, the company sells gold ingots ranging from one gramme to one kilogramme in weight. In Europe, the best-known ingots are the „elephant ingots“, bars of fine gold with an elephant motif on the back. The Rand Refinery has been admitted to the London Bullion Market Association, and is also listed for good delivery on the New York Commodities Exchange (COMEX), the Tokyo Commodities Exchange (TOCOM) and the Dubai Good Delivery Multi Commodities Centre (DMCC), amongst others.

U.S. IPO- Going Public – Small Cap Firms

How to access U.S. capital market as small firm

E-news business 05/08/17
source Focus Equity 2017|OTC Insights

Raising Capital – Challenges and Solutions for Small Firms
IPO Advisory is the way to go given cost effectiveness and specialist support

Why should small firms access the equity capital markets?
Banks are reluctant to lend since the 2008 financial crises. Thanks to the stringent minimum capital and liquidity coverage requirements, banks aren“t fond of lending money. Further, quantitative easing, which was supposed to promote lending isn“t doing so because banks will have to buyback those securities at some point of time in future.

U.S. IPO Advisory Service

Reuters notes that only U.S. bank lending is higher now than it was then. Lending is barely higher in Japan, steady in the euro zone and notably lower in Britain. Richard Swart, an expert of alternative finance at UC Berkley, notes that „high cost, high risk, and low reward of underwriting small loans makes small businesses unattractive to banks.“ Anyhow, banks“ reluctance to lend makes it difficult for small businesses to access capital and that“s where stock capital markets come in.
Stock markets are a flexible capital raising option for companies. Fund raisers don“t have to worry about bankruptcy or interest payments and can sustain losses in order to grow. According to OECD,
„Growth requires investment and long-term investment requires patient capital. It is therefore essential that companies that have the potential to grasp commercial opportunities of scale and scope have access to equity capital.“

Equity financing is not only important because of flexibility; it also opens the door for further financing, secondary public offering for instance. Getting listed exposes a firm to the opportunity of financing future growth.
Equity financing might be more relevant for small companies as they are exposed to very high financial risk if they opt for debt financing. However, small companies might also find it difficult to get listed on major stock exchanges amid rigorous regulation. Therefore, over the counter markets might be the best option for small companies to go public.
How to access the U.S. financial capital market as a small cap firm?
There are several ways to access the market in the U.S ranging from securing a bank loan to getting listed on stock exchanges. Small firms don“t usually have the luxury to secure a loan as banks are reluctant to offer loans. Large exchanges are problematic because of the compliance regulation; smalls firms don“t have the skill or the resource to comply with regulation. Therefore, most of the small firms settle for angle investors or venture funds.
Regarding Angel Investors, the problem is they fail to provide a decent return to their investors. 80% of all angel investing association in the U.S. fail to provide return to their investors. Therefore, it“s quite difficult for small firms to find suitable angel investors. In case financing is secured, it“s isn“t as flexible as exchange equity and comes with limiting clauses. Venture funds aren“t so different.
„Taken as a whole, the returns from venture capital investments are low and unreliable, and many smaller venture capital firms ultimately fail.“
Choosing a good venture capital firm might be a cumbersome and cost intensive task for small growth firms. Overall, equity markets are among the safest choice for acquiring finance, however, financing largely depends on meeting the regulation and approaching the market in a right way. Therefore, it“s not a good idea for startups, or potential growth companies, to access equity markets without external help.
One of the efficient ways for small companies is to get listed on an OTC market using IPO, or going public, services of firms like GH Capital Inc. that specialize in small-cap IPOs. This reduces the workload of finding a good angel investor or a venture capital firm. This strategy also provides access to flexible equity financing.
Is IPO advisory the way to go?
It“s a good idea to use advisory services, especially for small companies, to go public. Small corporations don“t usually have the skill to carry out a complicated exercise like initial public offerings. If the companies do have expertise, they are engaged with their growth strategy, given the fact most small corporations emerge in growth sectors. Management can focus on operations instead of getting involved in taking the company public. Further, DIY is a double edged sword. It can negatively affect operations while also impacting the process of going public. Therefore, using an advisory service might be the right course of action as it can be cost effective and reduces the risk of poor execution.
Moreover, there are numerous benefits of using a one-stop IPO advisory service. Firstly, IPO candidates don“t have to use separate firm for several services, which leads to cost efficiency and limited administrative work. Further, IPO advisories usually agree to equity compensations, allowing small firms to preserve their cash in order to capitalize on the market growth. One of the advisory firms that can enable small cost effective IPO“s is GH Capital Inc.

Connecting companies

Connecting companies

The GMC AG headquarter in Zug, Switzerland

Contacts are very important nowadays. The right contacts are often the key to a successful business. Finding those useful contacts is often called „networking“.

Contacts to all different types of branches can be useful, even though they may not seem like it in the beginning, says Rieta de Soet, CEO of Global Management Consultants AG in Zug, Switzerland.

The last couple of years special events for networking have developed. „Easy networking“ is designed for people and companies in certain branches, so that they connect with the right people, which is a win/win-situation for both sides.

Rieta de Soet speaks from experience. She has successfully managed GMC Business Centers for more than 25 years and met a lot of people and companies along the way. A lot of companies started at GMC AG and kept growing from there, but the contacts still remain after they expanded their company outside of the Business Center. This is also a good opportunity for companies that decide to work with Global Management Consultants AG, because GMC AG can easily connect it`s clients with their contacts, adds Rieta de Soet.

Über GMC AG

GMC AG mit Hauptsitz in Zug/Schweiz, ist mit zahlreichen Business Centern international in Amerika, Australien, Asien und Europa vertreten.

Scaling new heights using cutting-edge logistics

Greiner Bio-One invests in a new high-bay warehouse at its Frickenhausen site

Scaling new heights using cutting-edge logistics

Ground-breaking ceremony for the new high-bay warehouse in Frickenhausen (Source: Michael Latz/Greiner Bio-One)

Frickenhausen, 27 April 2017 – Greiner Bio-One GmbH is constructing a new high-bay warehouse at its home base in Frickenhausen. The new 29-metre-high construction will replace the current high-bay warehouse, which is no longer capable of dealing with the greatly increased warehouse technology and capacity requirements. The building is part of an infrastructure project that also includes plans for developing additional production space. The ground-breaking ceremony for the new high-bay warehouse was held today, Thursday, and it is scheduled for completion in April 2018.

Five times faster – more than twice as much space
Greiner Bio-One specialises in the development, production and sale of high-quality plastic laboratory products. Its 1980s high-bay warehouse was no longer able to keep pace with the dynamic growth the company has undergone in the last few years. It was close to full capacity at times, and stock had to be stored at other sites. The new building will double the number of pallet spaces to more than 12,000. With a volume of 70,000 cubic metres, there is – theoretically – easily space to park 7,000 compact cars in the building.

Warehouse technology has evolved radically in recent decades. The digital revolution is also driving a technological transformation. This alone made a modernisation of the facility inevitable. The new fully-automatic high-bay warehouse will improve material flows and productivity in logistics. It will in future be possible to move five times as much material in and out of storage in the same period of time.

Major infrastructure project launches
However, the company is not only investing in the plant infrastructure to improve material supply and logistics, it is also significantly expanding its production capacity at the same time. In the next two years, for example, the production areas at the Frickenhausen site will be expanded by a third to a total of 5,200 square metres. The addition of 14 more system positions will then bring the total number to 61. The next few years will also see a further 40 employees added to the existing staff of 330. All in all, the company is investing more than eleven million euros in the comprehensive renovation of the Frickenhausen site.

Clear commitment to Germany as an industrial location
„Efficient logistics and production are more than an investment in competitiveness for us,“ CEO Heinz Schmid explained at the ground-breaking ceremony for the new high-bay warehouse. „Systematically expanding the site is also a promise to our customers that we will continue manufacturing high-quality products „Made in Germany“ at this site.“ The whole project therefore represents a clear commitment to Germany as an industrial location on the part of Greiner Bio- One.

Franchising has had a bad reputation in the past when it first started, but it has come a long way and is highly recognized now, considering that a lot of companies became successful because they were part of a big franchise system. When people think about franchising they usually think about restaurants or clothing brands, but there are more possibilities.

GMC AG, for example, offers their franchise system. It is a popular system which is based on a great business concept. Rieta de Soet says, franchising opens up a lot of opportunities.

Business Center offer completeley equipped offices and conference rooms, that can be rented for a few days, weeks or even months and years. Business Center are perfect for franchising, because there is a great demand in renting shortterm-offices, rather than committing to one permanent office.

There are a lot of benefits coming from franchising. Franchising is perfect for people who want to pursuit their dream of having their own company. However franchising can minimize the risk of financial bankruptcy, because the new owner gets to work with a proven system, claims Rieta de Soet, CEO of Global Management Consultants AG.
