HTGF and SeedCapital Dortmund invest into Process Relations

The High-Tech Gründerfonds participates as a lead investor in the spin-off of an international IP development and marketing company in the semiconductor industry. The amount of seed financing is € 700,000. In addition to the High-Tech Gründerfonds and the Seed Capital Dortmund, which together make available € 600,000 of venture capital and the founders involved with € 50,000, the Capital Acquisition Consulting Josef Krautkraemer invested € 50,000 as a side investor into the company.

After the decision to spin off the preparations took just a few months, then this first round of financing was ready, says Dr. Jens Popp, founding partner of Process Relations GmbH.

“We have invested because the Process Relations GmbH possesses innovative concepts and tested product components addressing several interesting markets. From our point of view the support of new business models by means of integrated IP-Transfers opportunities in the high-tech sector is promising, 'Holger Heinen, Investment Manager of the High-Tech Gründerfonds, explains the investment decision. “We are very glad that we succeeded in winning over the Business Angel Josef Krautkraemer as an investor as well as the High-Tech Gründerfonds,' says Dr. Dirk Ortloff, a founding partner of Process Relations GmbH.

The XperiDesk Software Suite combines the core areas XperiDesign and XperiLink into a coherent system to support the effective development of complex high-tech processes. This makes the software a valuable contribution in all phases of the development of semiconductor based manufacturing processes from the initial concept to the transfer of the production process to the fabrication. The system can be easily adapted to the methods and environments of the customers, says Dr Jens Popp. The key advantages of our product are the versioned storage of development results, the simplification of the IP-Transfer and more efficient transfer of development results into the mass production.

For the alignment of further product developments with the requirements of the industry, Process Relations has secured the availability of a first-class Advisory Board. Currently this board consists of Dr. Albert Stritter (Infineon Technologies AG) and Prof. Dr. Reiner Brück (University of Siegen Institute of Microelectronic Systems Engineering) as well as other internationally established experts. . Josef Krautkraemer, actively supporting the founder as a managing director, says, 'The Commitment of HTGF and SCD is a clear sign of confidence in the abilities of the founding team to commercialize this unique technology successfully. With the seed funding Process Relations is now able to establish business operations and to prepare the second phase of funding for expanding the business. The aim is to establish Process Relations as a profitable fast-growing company in the market of the Design For Manufacturing (DFM) within the next 24 months.
