ZEW Study - Again Decreasing Number of High-Tech Start-Ups in Germany

In 2010 the number of high-tech start-ups in Germany fell by two per cent. This is a result of a recent study of the Centre for European Economic Research (ZEW) conducted in cooperation with Microsoft Germany. The surge in growth in 2009, which was caused by the Unternehmergesellschaft (UG – a limited liability company with less restrictive entry costs) did not continue. In the last year 14100 high-tech start-ups were set up. This number is significantly lower than the numbers of the second half of the 1990s, where on average approximately 18500 start-ups per year were established. read more

However, the number of high-tech start-ups in cutting-edge technologies such as medical engineering which have especially good chances of growth the long run decreased. In total, the number of high-tech start-ups standing at 14,000 is still on one of the lowest levels since the mid 1990s. read more

ZEW Study: High-Tech Start-Ups in Germany at All-Time Low

The high-tech sector cannot escape the economic crisis. The number of start-ups dropped to a new low point in almost every high-tech sector. In total, the number of high-tech start-ups, which had been stable for years, decreased by eleven percent to about 15,300 start-ups in 2008. These are the findings of a study conducted by the Centre for European Economic Research (ZEW) in Mannheim in cooperation with Microsoft Germany. The study was presented today in Munich. The sectors affected the most are advanced technology and technology-oriented services. The development in IT services, especially in the software sector, is rather stable. The high-tech founders expect a clear market adjustment, but they are still optimistic regarding their firms' future. The founders consider the politicians' task to create good general conditions for start-ups in the long run. read more

Upward Trend in High-Tech Start-Ups

In 2007, there were more high-tech start-ups in Germany than in the previous years. Despite this upward tendency, the number of start-ups is still below the number reached in 1995. These are the findings of a study conducted by the Centre for European Economic Research (ZEW) in Mannheim in cooperation with Microsoft Germany. The study outlines that the number of high-tech start-ups in 2007 increased by four percent compared to the previous year to a total of 19,200 start-ups. The extraordinary good economic situation in the high-tech sectors is the reason for this trend. High-tech start-ups develop contrary to the general trend as the number of start-ups in all economic sectors is still declining. There are clear regional differences concerning the number of high-tech start-ups over the last ten years: Nuremberg surprisingly ranked second after Munich, the Stuttgart region on the other hand lost its place among the top ranks. The study also finds that every twelfth high tech firm in Germany is founded by a majority of women. read more

Number of High-Tech Start-Ups Stabilising – Economic Upswing Positively Affects German Start-Up Scene / Overall Level Remains Low

In the course of the previous year, the number of high-tech start-ups in Germany stabilised. These are the findings of a study conducted by the Centre for European Economic Research, Mannheim, in cooperation with Microsoft Germany. The study was published today in Berlin. The results suggest that the total of high-tech start-ups in 2006 has remained constant compared to the previous year. Still the overall level remains low. The high-tech sector has thus developed against the general trend as the numbers of new businesses in all economic sectors keeps declining. However, the study also shows that the shortage of skilled workers and financial problems remain serious hindrances to high-tech founders and negatively influence foundation numbers. read more
