After several weeks of preparation and training four scientists of the DSS team finally obtained the conveted promotion from the Bundesministerium für Wirtschaft und Energie for bringing smart scientific ideas to real products. Merikan Koyun, Christian Lüke, Stephan Senkbeil, and Jochen Withopf are so-called "EXIST founders" now - they get sponsoring within the program "EXIST Forschungstransfer". In the next 18 months they will work on applied speech and audio processing for automotive applications.
Special thanks goes to our partners from the center of entrepreneurship (Dr. Anke Rasmus, Gabriele Buda) and from the chair of technology management (Prof. Carsten Schultz) who helped a lot to be successful in this highly competitive selection process.
We wish the Exist team, called "ACE", all our best for the future.
