A manufacturer of premium vehicles is currently being challenged by developments in the fields of electric mobility, autonomous driving and car sharing. The know-how in combustion technology, which has guaranteed a certain unique selling proposition for decades, is quickly losing its significance. ...

Education Provider

Over 70% of all startups still fail within the first 20 months of their existence despite receiving an average of USD 1.3 million in funding and despite already generating revenue.

Andreas G. Stütz has been an IT and media entrepreneur, pilot and inventor with several patents for over 20 years.

During his studies at the University of Passau, he developed the first concept of a group-wide information marketplace for the CEO of Daimler.

Media Coverage

IDEASCANNER is recommended in the book ‘Future Business Kompass’

In his new book Stephan Grabmeier recommends IDEASCANNER for the smart evaluation of business models to start the Sustainable Business Transformation:
'In my work, I evaluate many ideas from start-ups or new business models, for example in setting up innovation labs, in intrapreneur programs, in direct investments in young companies or when we evaluate students with our Next Entrepreneurs programs. [...]
Ideas and business models must be evaluated in a structured way. For me and my clients, the Ideascanner is an objective quick test for evaluation.'
