It is the mission of this ZF subsidiary, founded in 2016, to drive strategic change within the Group by providing quick access to key technologies and thereby establish competences and knowledge required in this fast changing future.
Such established companies with corresponding technology portfolios can benefit from a strong and reliable partner, i.e. ZF, at their side. In turn, we gain fast access to future technologies enabling the whole ZF group to be a step ahead of the competition.
We at Zukunft Ventures believe in cooperation to accelerate innovation.
As part of Zukunft Ventures and complementary to the ZF Group innovation management, the ZF Denkfabrik (Think Tank) especially focuses on “out of the box”- ideas opening up new strategic segments in order to explore potential new ZF business. Even though neither search focus nor imagination are restricted, the ZF Denkfabrik team operates in line with ZF strategy aiming to generate business for ZF Group and its divisions.
