CO-INNOVATION WITH DDG

PARTNERSHIP AT EYE LEVEL

Co-Innovation means creating solutions for real-life business problems with joined forces and marketing the resulting digital products globally, from a dedicated start-up. The basis for our success is the industry knowledge and market access of our partner companies, which puts us in a position to leverage those competences into our technical implementation and execution power, and our experience in setting up companies.

The starting point for the development of a new AI-based product is always a real-life business challenge from our partner company. That’s a core aspect on how we ensure that the resulting products and services offer tangible added value, both for our co-innovation partners, and beyond that, also for entire industry.

THE PROCESS AT A GLANCE

HOW IT WORKS

When it comes to generating innovation, we don’t believe in gambling – which is why we have developed a holistic and clearly structured process that enables us to shorten the path from the idea to an independently operating start-up to a minimum. In this way we also minimize the development costs that we share with our co-innovation partners.

The Co-Innovation process is divided into three core phases:

INNOVATE

From the intial ideation phase over prototype development and proof-of-concept test phase under real-life conditions.

LAUNCH

From market analysis and test sales to the development of a business model and the spin-off of the new start-up.

COMMERZIALIZE

Dedicated support for the MVP development and the organisational setup, until the new company is able to run in a stand-alone manner.
