Aktuelle Formen der urbanen Mobilität kommen an ihre Grenzen. Sie können nur gemeinsam geköst werden in einem offenen Ökosystem aus Städten, Unternehmen und Start-ups --- mit Bürgern.

"citizen mobility" ist eine agile Umsetzungsplattform zur gemeinsamen Lösung von Mobilitätsproblemen in Städten.

Im Workshop soll dieses innovative Format vorgestellt und mit interessierten Personen (Bürgern, Start-ups sowie Vertretern von Städten und Unternehmen) Handlungsfelder erarbeitet werden.

Topic (German language only):

Description (German): Die beschleunigte technologische Entwicklung, die Digitalisierung und die zunehmende Verfügbarkeit von Venture Capital und Privat Equity führen in allen Branchen zu einem Innovationsdruck, der durch klassische, interne Entwicklung und Innovation nur noch schwer beherrschbar ist. Unternehmen sind daher zunehmend auf „Innovations-Ökosysteme“ angewiesen die helfen können, die Wettbewerbsfähigkeit zu wahren.

Der Workshop gibt einen Überblick über den Status Quo dieser Innovations-Ökosysteme und ihrer Leistungsfähigkeit und beleuchtet wie sich Unternehmen hinsichtlich ihrer externen Innovationsstrategie in diesen Ökosystemen positionieren können. Insbesondere werden die Themen Deal-Flow Generierung, Einschätzung des Reifegrades und der Leistungsfähigkeit von Startups sowie die Strukturierung der Zusammenarbeit mit Startups detailliert diskutiert.

Date: September 13

Time: 14:00 - 15:00 pm

Location: Raum Conclusio 2 (CMF)


Q&A session about rasing Seed and Series A rounds

If you are a founder and thinking about raising your next round you might find this session very useful.

This session will be structured as openly as possible. Most of the time will be reserved for Q&A and discussions between the participants. There are no stupid questions.
