Let us help you find the right startup that fits your individual strategy and goals as a company by leveraging our strong network of partnerships in global ecosystems. We bring you together one-on-one and provide additional support once you have found each other.

As such, we combine the speed and agility of startups with the expertise and strengths of enterprises. Startup Scouting keeps you up to date on current developments and future innovations in your industry and market. Informing you about trends, technologies and new players entering or disrupting your industry, we provide you with early access to new innovations.

Startup Programs

Our startup programs go beyond startup scouting. Corporate experience is combined with startup agility. The programs pursue the goal of establishing a cooperation between corporates and startups. Together we want to accelerate your company’s innovation efforts as well as your individual innovation strategy through tailor-made programs.

To foster innovation in the company you can choose between Innovation Challenges, Power Innovation Week, Startup Mentoring and Corporate Accelerator. Encourage multidisciplinary groups to participate in an Innovation Challenge, develop solutions together with a startup in a short time frame, support startups as a mentor and learn from them yourself or look forward to pilot projects with startups from your industry.
