Venturing and Innovation

Established organizations are often unable to respond quickly enough to new technological opportunities and changing customer needs. Market trends and disruptive elements are recognized too late. Whether as a potential partner or competitor, startups offer important stimuli for a successful digital transformation and give companies access to new technologies and trends. We show what successful cooperation between corporates and start-ups can look like and where it is worth investing.

Project examples

We designed an innovation hub for several grid operators of a German energy group and supported its implementation. The aim of the project was to develop innovative data-oriented business models for the energy industry. An essential key to the success was the strong networking with the Berlin technology ecosystem in order to design and test relevant solution concepts in collaboration with startups.

We supported a start-up company specializing in consulting, planning, delivery and commissioning of smart home solutions. In the areas of new construction and refurbishment for private customers, the development of the business model and product designs were supported. This included the development of new service offerings, support in the further development of the business case, support in the scaling of the business model and the establishment of co-ops.

As entrepreneurs, we regularly witness how important it is to have the right contact person at the right time. As a committed investor, we help start-ups master the challenges of implementing sustainable organizational structures and building successful product/service portfolios. We support our early-stage entrepreneurs in word and deed and initiate decisive contacts with the help of our broad industry network.
