Maschinenraum is a shared innovation ecosystem, bringing together German Mittelstand and family-owned businesses in order to jointly develop new realities and drive their digital transformation. As a catalyst for industrial change, Maschinenraum supports companies by sharing resources, methods and infrastructures. With its network and knowledge from established companies, startups and innovators, Maschinenraum enables its members to learn from each other and shape the next generation of Mittelstand together.
Building Awareness & Connections
We believe that in a highly complex and increasingly dynamic world, even the most innovative and successful companies of today have difficulty in understanding technological, environmental and social challenges and reacting with the right decisions for tomorrow.
Maschinenraum creates impact by connecting Mittelstand- and thought leaders across subjects to share perspectives and new realities. We offer inspiring space to work outside existing structures and routines on new digital solutions with new methods and approaches.
Shaping Mindsets & Agendas
We believe that different organisations face similar challenges or problems and that sharing experiences and solutions is mutually beneficial.
Maschinenraum blends and balances experiences of different companies to systematise topics and knowledge. We curate formats for exchange or joint work and identify best solutions worth sharing. We provide decision-makers with clarity of making better decisions to drive positive change.
Facilitating Execution & Collective Actions
We believe that ideas need to be executed faster and validated more thoroughly before they are implemented with high resource input. Often resources, skills, methods or time are lacking to systematically validate ideas.
Maschinenraum facilitates new projects and collaborative actions, and offers access to required resources and methods. We aggregate processes to increase reliability, efficiency and the possibility to identify ideas for joint implementation.
Our Focus Topics
The potential for a sustainable transformation of organisations exists at the intersection of different challenges and topics. Progress will come through continuously exploring and gaining clarity about this context.
We continuously evolve around the topics highlighted in our Maschinenraum Context Canvas. Download it below to find out more.
