We are the
The entrepreneurship and innovation center in the region of Heilbronn-Franken
We support energetic and passionate creators and guide them through their entrepreneurial journey. Through our regional roots, international mindset, and sustainable actions, we inspire, inform, empower and connect. We promote a spirit of entrepreneurship and entrepreneurial culture and create a home for all players in the startup and innovation ecosystem. We are a startup ourselves and as such, we strive to build a dream team, great company culture, and organization that we all love to work for.
Our core philosophy is people over process and values over rules. Therefore, it is very important for us that we provide context to our team members, are very authentic and transparent, and share the same values. We value team spirit, courage, honesty, integrity, excellence, respect, inclusivity, flexibility, and speed. We are customer-centric and willing to try new things. We have the courage to do things differently and provide constant feedback to our colleagues. This way, we believe we will learn faster, provide better programs, and build trust among our team members, students, startups, and corporate partners.
Supported by The Dieter Schwarz Foundation
Promote education, share knowledge, venture future’ is the guiding principle of the Dieter Schwarz Foundation, named after Heilbronn entrepreneur Dieter Schwarz. The foundation is based in Heilbronn, where it has been active in the region and far beyond since 1999. Through its commitments, the Foundation today strives to promote that which makes society well-prepared for the future: a wide range of educational opportunities for people in different phases of life. Science is of decisive importance for the development and future sustainability of the state. Against this backdrop, one of the main objectives of the foundation is to recognize potential, to develop visions from it and to implement them sustainably.
Current focal points include the Bildungscampus in Heilbronn and the Science Center experimenta, which is also located in Heilbronn, and at which visitors can experience the world of science with all of their senses as well as get to grips interactively with the natural sciences and technology.
