Spin-off companies

Some of our innovative methods are commercially offered by spin-off companies after their development has reached a corresponding maturity level. For example, we can ensure professional care and support for software products.

Here, you will find an overview of companies that have been founded since the beginning of Matheon in 2002.

Meanwhile, some of these Spin-offs have become part of other companies
