The team at DigitalValley, under the leadership of co-founder and CEO P. Dennis Niederhagen, began by questioning the absence of a marketplace for innovations. Given the immense challenges we face today, we can no longer afford to engage in the traditional, inefficient methods of scouting startups and innovations. This is why we serve as a digital bridge linking local innovation ecosystems and their startups. The era of barriers in innovation has ended. Therefore, we facilitate connections between companies, innovators, and investors to promote collaborative innovation. Embrace our motto: “Silicon Valley may not be everywhere, but DigitalValley is!”
Our strategy unfolds in three stages, aiming for expansion within the EU and beyond, designed to be straightforward and effective:
Connecting the Dots
Consolidation of Local Ecosystems: Our first step is to unify local ecosystems into a cohesive network. This phase is dedicated to reinforcing the links between each ecosystem to build a strong foundation that supports growth across Europe and elsewhere.
Digitalization of Scouting and Monitoring (Innovation Funnel Management): We then introduce digital tools for scouting and monitoring innovation. This digital transformation allows for seamless management of the innovation funnel from start to finish, enabling efficient identification and support of promising ventures through DigitalValley.
Building a Marketplace
Marketplace for Cooperation and Investment (Co-Pilot): Our final phase launches a marketplace designed to foster cooperation and investment opportunities. Acting as a co-pilot, this platform simplifies the process of discovering and connecting with potential partners and investors, streamlining investments and collaborations.
Our track record
The ones who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones that do.
