What we do

We create meaningful ecosystems of different organisations. Together, they make groundbreaking innovation happen. We follow a co-creation approach, together with our clients and the different parties of an ecosystem. Our formats start with initial purpose definition workshops, strategic ecosystem visions and blueprints, cover the design and set-up of ecosystems and might include the full-scale ongoing operations of ecosystems.

Key challenges of our time can only be solved through collaboration in ecosystems. They are more innovative, faster and better able to distribute risks. We understand an ecosystem to be a coherent, structured and active collaboration of different organizations, focused on a common purpose. Typically, the purpose is cross-industry and can best be addressed by an interdisciplinary mix of diverse organizations, e.g., from corporations, mid-sized companies, startups, universities, and so on. Collaboration “at eye level” can take place along the value chain of an industry (e.g. from raw material to consumer) or between different industries (e.g. food and mobility). Our proven ecosystem framework was developed over years in many projects.

Purpose definition workshops

Regional Innovation Hub

We supported the city of Neukirchen-Vluyn and the intermunicipal wir4 economic development agency in the framework conception of the idea for a regional innovation center within a planned creative quarter. In an exploratory phase, the views of various stakeholders in the regional business and innovation ecosystem were explored. These perspectives were incorporated into the design of an interdisciplinary workshop.
The participants included the mayor and the municipal administration of the city of Neukirchen-Vluyn, the intermunicipal economic development agency wir4, several regional universities, social institutions, real estate developers and various business enterprises.
The workshop was conducted virtually using various online collaboration tools. Not only the moderation but also the technical process received much positive feedback. Though this process, it was possible to unite the different points of view into a common conceptual framework. This included the basic thematic orientation of an innovation center, a profile of requirements and functions, synergies with the surrounding creative quarter, and the clarification of willingness to participate.
