Our Vision

Product developer based on printed flexible sensor technology

MinkTec strives to manufacture its own products on the basis of printed flexible sensor technology. The company intends to build up as much know-how as possible internally, in order to be able to develop perfectly tailored products. The services offered should also help other developers to create their own products on the basis of MinkTec's expertise without having to compete.

Our Roots

Spin-off from the Institute of Microtechnology

The idea of a spin-off company in the field of flexible sensors against back pain was born at the Institute of Microtechnology (TU Braunschweig) and is based on the technology of a baby respiration monitoring patch as described in the doctoral thesis of Eugen Koch. Together with Martin Schwerter and Benjamin Holmer, the spin-off was put into practice within the framework of a scholarship for founders (Exist Gründerstipendium, BMWi). The MinkTec GmbH was finally founded in February 2019 and is now managed by Benjamin Holmer and Martin Schwerter.

Our Name

MinkTec - smart. active. agile. - like a Mink

The name MinkTec is derived from the lively little animal Mink. It is a marten species that is considered to be very smart, active and agile. We have made these characteristics our motto and combine them with our flexible sensor technology and the qualities of our team. Furthermore, the .com URL for this name was still available ;)
