Welcome to KNF Starter

KNF Starter is the KNF Group’s innovation unit that seeks new and disruptive technologies and business models that will shape the fields of MedTech, engineered evolution, exponential industries and artificial intelligence.

 

Being the world market and quality leader for diaphragm pump technology, KNF has always been innovative and, in over 75 years of company history, has researched, tested and launched many new technologies. To ensure continued technology leadership, KNF Starter was founded in Switzerland – a separate unit that thinks outside the box with curiosity, approaches things differently, and breaks new ground.

CEO KNF GROUP & KNF STARTER

“KNF has always actively promoted technological progress. With KNF Starter, we deliberately take things in a new, disruptive and unknown direction. We thereby combine the liberties of a start-up with the resources and expertise of a globally established company group.”

Cooperation for the Future

In cooperation with universities, research institutions, industry partners and other technology partners, KNF Starter systematically promotes technical progress. In doing so, the unit is always looking for creative and innovative visionaries who want to actively shape tomorrow's technologies and business models, and continuously push the limits of what is possible.

 

Furthermore, KNF Starter is always interested in collaborating with science and industry. Cooperation partners should be interested in not only incrementally improving what is already available, but in turning ambitious goals and future visions into reality. These partners can be companies, start-ups, universities or research institutions.

MedTech

MedTech

Medical technology is one of the most important technological fields of today. For example, telecare without physical encounters allows for broader access to medical services. Sensor systems facilitates independent control, diagnosis and treatment. Personalised therapeutic approaches result in more precise and thus more effective treatments. These potentials fuel our aim to take medical technology to a new development level.

Engineered Evolution

Engineered Evolution

Continuing technological progress allows us to boost the evolution of the human body, and to expand its abilities and senses using technology. KNF Starter explores human enhancement technologies for improved physical and cognitive performances as well as bioengineering, by applying the principles of engineering and sciences to biological systems.

Exponential Industries

Exponential Industries

A number of manufacturing processes are subject to exponential change and become innovation drivers. KNF Starter explores systems that capture their environments four-dimensionally and define their position in space. We also conduct research on production processes in 3D/4D printing that continuously establish themselves in new contexts, and explore intelligent, multi-functional materials that flexibly adjust to their environments.

Artificial Intelligence

Artificial Intelligence

Artificial intelligence makes rapid progress in data processing, and the systems support us already in decision finding. Their functions comprise machine cognition and learning, concluding and planning or prediction. We at KNF Starter research and develop new AI applications that may be implemented to solve future tasks.

Be Part of KNF Starter and Shape the Future!
