Take Part as a Company

Move forward with the Digital Hub Initiative. You can find solutions for every challenge associated with digitisation here. Businesses can make the most of cross-network offerings, get to know the Hubs and what they do, and contact start-ups.

Get to know the initiative

The de:hub journey is aimed at German SMEs

The de:hub journey is aimed at the owners and decision-makers of German SMEs. It takes them through the initiative’s Hubs, making it possible for them to work together to identify the potential offered by digital technology, processes and business models and utilise these opportunities for their business. On the way, participants are given an insight into the work done by the Digital Hubs. They also visit test labs and co-working spaces. This gives them the chance to get to know start-ups and potential cooperation partners.

A single programme combining multiple hubs' offerings

Link ‘n’ Match: the three-step approach to a digital product

Our Link ‘n’ Match programme effectively compiles the core capabilities of the various Hubs to assist businesses with the development and scaling up of digital products and business models. As the programme’s name suggests, it brings together the Digital Hubs’ programmes and combines them to offer a tailored range of services for SMEs and corporates.
