The University of Göttingen promotes startups aswell as knowledge and technology transfer . This page publishs startups of the University of Göttingen that contribute to regional, national and international sustainable development.
The Transfer & Startup Hub team has accompanied them on their way to a successful startup and supported with advice, funding, qualification formats and network contacts.
Kulero means "spoon" in Esperanto and thus describes the company's core product. The young start-up has developed edible spoons made from renewable raw materials such as millet and barley as an alternative to conventional disposable cutlery. Even when consuming hot or liquid foods such as soups or cereals, the spoons remain in their original shape. Thus, no (plastic) waste is produced and is instead an additional crunchy snack in different flavors.
myofarm is developing a unique measurement system that allows for very detailed insights into the drug response of artificial human heart muscle. The long-term goal is to provide a unique research platform to help pharmaceutical companies develop safe drugs in a timely, cost-effective, sustainable manner, while minimizing the use of animal testing.

The Inkster team develops innovative patches that allow customers to apply real-looking temporary tattoos to the skin that last two weeks. The ink from the patch, which is based on a plant fruit extract, is absorbed into the first layer of skin (epidermis) and fades with the natural renewal of the first layer of skin. The ink is 100% vegan and certified according to EU cosmetics regulation and is skin friendly.
3Digity develops individualized, robotic orthoses for hand rehabilitation. The aim is to provide patients and treating staff with a new form of hand rehabilitation. For this purpose, the hand is digitally measured and customized orthoses are automatically produced with the help of this data. These can be integrated into a rehabilitation process within a very short time using 3D printing.

In viticulture, high application rates of fungicides are used every year to protect against fungal diseases, which place a heavy burden on the vineyard ecosystem and at the same time cause high costs for the business. To meet this challenge, the start-up "VineForecast" has developed a forecasting system for diseases in viticulture that supports wineries in cost-efficient and sustainable plant protection. Using local weather and topography data, user interaction and machine learning algorithms, VineForecast calculates disease forecasts for the fungal diseases powdery and downy mildew.
The start-up Agvolution offers environmental monitoring tailored to the cultivation and care of crops and other ecosystem assets. With their very own patented microclimate sensor "CLIMAVI", they record parameters such as temperature, precipitation, and soil moisture, which are collected and evaluated in the company’s "FARMALYZER" platform (a mobile and web-based app). Based on this data, artificial intelligence develops forecasts and practical decision recommendations for resource-efficient crop protection, irrigation and fertilization.
