As an innovation center, we seek to unite Startups with municipalities or large companies and thus promote regional growth as well as progress.
One of our greatest advantages? The central location. Directly located next to the Neckarbridge, Karlstraße 3, the main station as well as the old town of Tübingen can be reached within 3 minutes. The Neckar Island and the nearby park offer the perfect possibilities for a little walk surrounded by nature. Either one is also just a few minutes away. It takes about 50 minutes to travel to Stuttgart airport by using the shuttlebus and about 30 minutes by car. The center of Stuttgart can be reached by train within 60 minutes and within approximately 40 minutes by car.
Whether you have questions concerning foundation or you are in search of investors or even if you need some advice in terms of sales and exit strategy, our coaches and mentors are there for you to offer you appropriate advice. During a 60 minutes consultation, you can ask all the relevant questions and benefit from their knowledge. There are no strict regulations concerning the slots of the consultations, we will arrange the time according to your schedule and ours.
Open innovation describes an innovation process in which companies or municipalities can be connected by Startups. By doing so, creative as well as innovative ideas from Startups and young enterprises can be transferred to large companies or municipalities (Outside-In-Process). Furthermore, it aims at supporting young companies when it comes to selling their products or services to different enterprises (Inside-Out-Process).
*small and medium-sized businesses
Outside-In at Neckar Hub
Large companies, smaller and medium-sized businesses but also municipalities often face difficulties and obstacles for which creative solutions already exist – developed by Startups.
We search for these particular Startups which offer a broad knowledge concerning the specific domains that frequently raise diffictulties and obstacles. We not only fall back upon our coworkers, but on our germanwide network of Startups and young companies.
Inside-Out at Neckar Hub
On the other hand, we also help Startups with creative ideas to win companies and municipalities as supporters. Therefore, we inform companies about important progress and developments within our network on a regular basis.
Your company faces technical challenges or is in search of innovative approaches for future problems? We will create a new team for you based on those particular difficulties and thus will be able to come up with a satisfying solution. Firstly, we will therefore arrange a Hackathon. Subsequently, the best ideas taken from the fist procedure will pass the so-called Launch-Pad-Week. After that, they will be filtered again one more time and strong support will be granted to the teams for 10 weeks following the rapid-venture-workflow principle.
Besides that, we are building so-called Innovation Taskforces in order to help companies remain competitive not just in the present, but also in the future. An innovation taskforce is a team that works together during a limited amount of time in which every team member comes from a different professional background and obtains different positions in various work domains. Thus, new and efficient ideas as well as approaches can be found by following the disrupt-yourself principle.
The word hub means a focus, center or also the main place of transshipment. And that is exactly what defines the Neckar Hub: a center for innovation, new ideas, young companies and Freelancers with sufficient experience. Apart from our coworkers which come from all kinds of different fields, the Neckar Hub is part of a germanwide network of freelancers and young companies. By using open innovation, we aim to bring Startups and large companies or municipalities togehter and promote innovation in the local area.
