BASF New Business GmbH
BASF New Business GmbH


It takes a great deal of courage, creativity, flexibility and perseverance to track down a potentially ground-breaking innovation, develop it for market roll-out and ultimately establish it successfully in the market.

How we work: market focus and flexibility

The objective of our daily work is to turn business ideas and concepts into profitable business with a high success potential. To achieve this, we work systematically, using agile methods and iterative business experiments: we boldly and rapidly convert ideas into demonstrators or prototypes, in order to gain prompt and continuous feedback from the market.

We adopt structures that allow us to react rapidly. In the initial phase, we work with small, flexible teams, which we then expand during the development of the business and convert to start-up-style structures.

Our teams are distinguished by a high degree of entrepreneurial commitment, personal initiative, and flexibility. These qualities go hand in hand with specific industry and technical expertise.
