The We-Approach

Putting you and Viessmann on equal footing 

Partnering with us is different. We do not believe that we know it all. In contrast, we are convinced that we can learn as much from you as you can from us.

That is why we value precision in production as much as we value agile work modes and dynamic team structures. A reliable corporate foundation and daring startup mindset – we are bringing both to the table.

We take zero equity and you retain your IP in full!

Details

 

We are convinced that there can be no truly impactful one-fits-all program supporting ventures with off-the-shelf modules and processes.

That is why we set up each and every Innovation Boiler partnership as a highly customized collaboration between the venture and Viessmann. This way we can provide focused support where it is needed while sticking with you as long as it is necessary to deliver stellar results.

In line with that, we do not work in batches meaning you can join Innovation Boiler any day of the year to get things rollin‘ asap. Yes, that means there are NO DEADLINES!

 

In the program we will then let you spar with Viessmann’s industry-leading experts and exchange with our vast network of partners in order to help you build and grow your venture globally. Eventually, after your active time in the program you will become part of our alumni network through which you can stay in touch with experts, partners and other alumni.
