Medical technology is a sector that is growing worldwide. Research in new application areas is constant, as is the development of innovative technologies. There are many examples of successful newly founded companies and spin-offs. I always find supporting young creative teams exciting, and I am not merely active as a consultant at some start-up companies, but am also involved as an investor via Stefan Eschbach GmbH. I am a member of the Board of Directors of the Swedish companies BioReperia AB and Glycobond AB.
