HOW WE WORK
CREATING INNOVATION TOGETHER
We bring together the challenges of German SMEs with Artificial Intelligence technology in order to create solutions that can be marketed worldwide.
The starting point for the development of new products and services are always real-life applications from daily work of small and medium-sized companies. Therefore we are always looking for partners who tell us about their challenges and ideas and have the courage to create something new together.
From the very first minute, we take entrepreneurial and financial risks and jointly exploit the achievements – we call this way of cooperation “Co-Innovation”.
WE ARE 100% “MITTELSTAND”
Not only do we work hand in hand with SMEs, but we also see ourselves as SMEs at eye level, speaking the same language. Proximity to medium-sized companies is therefore also important to us when selecting our investors, network partners and office locations.
We have our roots in Kaiserslautern, THE hidden champion location for artificial intelligence in Germany. In addition, we are expanding through a steadily growing number of locations in other regions close to medium-sized companies.
