Bridging the gap between business potential and business success
Being perfect today sets companies up for disruption tomorrow. This is known as the innovator’s dilemma.
We incubate and aim to scale new, explorative businesses of our Bosch business units and subsidiaries. In this way, we reduce the risk of them being disrupted and allow them to focus on their core business.
We achieve this by working as a separate entity with organizational freedom, data-driven decisions, global reach, customized support and flexible digital application processes in order to maximize the return on invest of our portfolio.
In particular, we incubate business models that solve profound customer-problems, are steeply scalable, and inherently highly profitable.
Aligned with the corporate strategy and capitalizing on Bosch’s “unfair” advantages (brand trust, global presence, partners and networks, technologies), we focus on global markets with the potential to expand current Bosch business significantly. Therefore, we partner with Bosch business divisions and units to jointly develop new business outside their core by applying our innovation framework and lean start-up expertise.
