"Many have shared in our company’s success. That’s why many should take part in it!" this is the main idea of the founders.
In 2011, company founders Eberhard Hinderer, Martin Litschel and Dr. Helmut Schelling established the non-profit Vector Stiftung. It is one of the medium-sized corporate foundations in Germany and focuses on supporting projects and initiatives in the following areas:
Support of research in Baden-Württemberg – in particular for zero-emission cars and driving innovations as well as in the area of natural sciences and engineering
Support of the training of "MINT instructors" (mathematics, informatics, natural sciences and technology) as well as school children who have yet to discover their MINT potential – in order to grow the number of people pursuing technical careers
Support of social initiatives addressing the issues of "Homelessness" and "Youth Unemployment," in an effort to support disadvantaged and indigent people in the Stuttgart metropolitan region
