ABOUT US

We are the newly established “German Agency for Disruptive Innovation” (SPRIND). We support disruptive innovations. Rafael Laguna de la Vera is the founding director of SPRIND.

We create spaces in which innovators can take risks and think in radically different ways. We also create an entrepreneurial setting to bring ideas to the market.

We accomplish this by identifying “high potentials” – known as “hipos” for short – in research institutions, universities and the business community and assist them before, during and after creating a startup. We assemble working teams that bring disruptive innovations to life: products, services and systems that make life tangibly better for all of us in the long run.

“Made in Germany 2.0:” We create a spirit of optimism in Germany and Europe – working together to generate economic benefits that come to life here in Germany and help secure our future prosperity. The first projects with our support promote European solutions in digitalization (analog computers, artificial intelligence, sovereign cloud stack, a project within GAIA-X) or accelerate groundbreaking innovations in the fields of life sciences, environmental technologies and sustainability.

Are you yourself working on great ideas, discoveries and inventions for the future that offer answers to the immense challenges of our time and can lead to economic benefits in Germany and Europe? We invite you to introduce us to your specific project for disruptive innovation here.
