Value-Add

Startups benefit from our long-term experience,
brand and broad network.

Funding

To us, funding a startup means much more than placing a bet on a good financial return. We fund startups if we believe that there is a good chance this startup can become essential to our core business.

Know-how

Our venturing team has built a network of top-level STIHL executives in worldwide sales, distribution, engineering and production, who develop symbiotic relationships with the startups they advise.

Collaboration

We don't just fund startups, we partner with them. STIHL is well-known for a best-of-breed approach, and we like to work with startups because they focus on one thing and do this very well.

Brand

People love STIHL products because they can count on them. And they know that, because we value quality and reliability so much, we pick our partners to share these same values.
