Start-Up & Innovation Workshop

Many young people have great ideas. They form start ups during or after their studies or find partners to implement or optimize these ideas. Founders, startups and digitization are on everyone’s mind right now. As always, the business world is changing. Examples are internet-based applications, networking and the effort to use artificial intelligence to make processes safer, more precise and automated. These innovative approaches are well received.

But apart from digital products, there are also tangible products, the design and development of which need other spaces and possibilities. We accompany this process from the idea to the design to the construction of a prototype and its production. We offer the craft and the expertise to create a product starting from an idea with resource-saving construction methods and sustainable materials.

For the industry

Change your running system! New ways, new product development and innovation are needed. As a professional interface between creative minds from the industrial sector and from universities, we recognize “stuck” approaches and help to develop and test them further. Whether planned concepts or specific problems, we accept the challenge.

For start-ups

You’ve got an idea, but the project is still missing the finishing touches? The details have been decided on and you are wondering about the producibility? Do you need a preproduction series? Or maybe you need a network, an in-depth exchange with like-minded people?

Perfect. We are what you are looking for. We make ideas visible. We consider ourselves a hub between investors and creative minds. Our door is open to those who want to create something.

For creatives

With us everyone is an essential part of the whole, works on real projects and has the chance to try things out, to get involved, to prove themself, to network and much more.

Who we are

Innovationswerkstatt.ruhr Synergie Infografik

We are a commercial enterprise without external financial support. We are based in the heart of the start-up hotspot Ruhr area. Our day-to-day business is product development and production technology. We are down-to-earth, competent and always with the latent middle finger on the pulse of the times. In short: we are the ideal partner for the industry, creative people, teaching and science to drive new things forward.

In our start-up workshop, we offer access to office and work spaces that are equipped with machines, tools and equipment for design, construction and implementation. Here we want to share our knowledge and practical experience at the workbench with those who want to make a difference and create something.

We are a well-coordinated and experienced team of creatives whose strengths are their manual skills and their versatility, and we offer an implemented network that makes almost anything possible. The whole thing is supported and carried by young, motivated people from universities, the trades and the industrial sector who are in training, advanced education or in an internship and who want to try out their skills and get involved in real projects.

DOG & DRIVE: PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT SUCCESSFULLY COMPLETED

On behalf of a private investor, we developed a dog transport and boarding aid. He approached us after observing in his veterinary practice that the conventional loading and unloading of large dogs in particular caused physical strain and stress for both the owner and the animal. The boarding aid we developed is particularly easy to install and remove and can be operated with just one hand movement.

The prototype development phase has now been completed. We will continue to support the production of the first batch of fully operational items, the production of which has been moved to specially equipped premises. In addition, we are further involved in the project in terms of visualization and branding.

The accompanying video was conceived and realized by us during the product development process and in close cooperation between the product design and graphics departments, and the launch is expected any minute.
