With the Startup Cooperation Program we continuously build up startup cooperations together. After a cooperation has been successfully established, it is either transferred to the core business or further options are examined as part of a make-buy partner strategy.
For your success, the successful implementation of the cooperations is key. From our experience it is advisable to start with single cooperations at the beginning and then to grow to a continuous level of e.g. one or two initiated cooperations per quarter. The number of cooperations also depends, for example, on the duration of the cooperation.
A start-up cooperation programme is designed to last several years. In this program, cooperation with start-ups or innovative technology providers is initiated and implemented for each innovation field. The subsequent cooperation management lasts from three months to several years.
