We are HEIMAT for Startups

grow is the platform for Start-ups and an open space for entrepreneurs inside of Bosch. Our start-ups and entrepreneurs are focused on radical ideas in order to develop new, sustainable and profitable business in new markets for Bosch. But as Robert Bosch already said: “What works in theory doesn’t always work in the field – The idea alone doesn’t count.” The idea is not enough. In this spirit the grow platform was born. We empower people to transform entrepreneurial spirit, freedom and ability into new Bosch business.

grow is HEIMAT for Querdenker, Selbstverwirklicher and Durchstarter.

Our Start-ups

Our start-ups are focused on radical new business ideas for Bosch.
Their challenge is to develop the right product, build a suitable business model and find the right customers. And they all have the same motivation: to invent fascinating solutions for future life.
They work on new mobility solutions, IoT for agriculture, robotics, ceramic innovations or other products and services invented for life.

And because radical ideas need a radical environment, even the workspaces look anything but normal. It’s a location that offers plenty of room for creativity – and for people.
In March 2018 we will move into a new and even bigger space on the Urban Harbor premises in Ludwigsburg. We will then have 5,000 square meters at our disposal, together with a testing area and a workshop, with communication zones, kitchen areas and innovative art – all under one roof.
To build this diverse space we work together with architects and artists from different countries.
This will be a space where Bosch products become the source of the artistic objects and technology history is functionally set in scene but where creativity and functionality don‘t need to be a contradiction.

We know: Inspiration is motivation for entrepreneurs
