Support and coaching of your partner startups

Have you entered into an initial partnership or have you already entered into a permanent partnership with a selected startup?

Innovation Idea Slams

Present yourself to your customers and partners as a "thought leader and innovation driver" on new trends and ideas in your industry. Differentiate yourself from your competitors and get new impulses for your own business.

An Innovation Idea Slam is about the free, unfiltered and first of all evaluation-free short presentation of ideas and observations of all kinds for a certain industry or a certain technology sector, e.g. LegalTech or InsureTech. These can already be new product and business concepts, but also just as well problems-without-solutions, good / bad personal customer experiences, trend observations on the market / with providers / with customers, expert statements on market / technology developments, etc. - Simply everything, which could possibly hide a promising innovation approach. After each slam contribution, there is a short Q&A session and then, as in a poetry slam, the audience decides which presentation was the most entertaining and innovative.

The best presentations or ideas and suggestions are then discussed, deepened and shaped in groups - right up to a specific project idea for your company and possible project partners. By inviting the right startups - not only with the appropriate industry focus but also with relevant enabling technologies & services - a high-quality idea output is guaranteed.
