With sales of about 20bn US dollars, Henkel holds globally leading positions both in consumer businesses (Laundry & Home Care and Beauty Care) and industrial businesses (Adhesive Technologies). With our new unit Henkel Ventures, we combine our corporate venture capital activities and focus on investing into start-ups with specific digital and technological expertise. At TechConnect, our focus is on the Adhesive Technologies business unit, where we are looking for collaboration / investment opportunities with start-ups in the fields of specialty films, coatings, and composites, or with novel solutions to 3D printing, thermal management, printed electronics, and consumer packaging that involve material-critical elements. As the largest adhesive company in the world, touching virtually every industry and country, Henkel can provide unparalleled market access as well as a broad range of complementary technologies and testing capabilities to any new venture.
