New ideas from Berlin: Telekom starts new program for startups

08.05.2012
• With hub:raum, Telekom is launching its own incubator program in Berlin
• New ideas wanted for telecommunications services, Internet services and digital media
Deutsche Telekom is pushing its partnering campaign and increasingly relies on new, creative ideas from startups alongside its own innovations: in order to support young companies in their early stages, in particular, Telekom has today launched hub:raum, its own incubator program in Berlin, at NEXT conference.

hub:raum opens up access to an experienced group of experts for ambitious start-up teams who receive specific support in an environment where they can further develop business ideas and bring them to market with the best possible chances of success ¡V similar to an incubator.
The program allows start-ups to benefit from Deutsche Telekom's size and reach, as well as from the know-how of its experts who support the core team made up of Dr. Min-Kin Mak and Peter Borchers. At the same time, they maintain their entrepreneurial independence. Start-ups are provided with exhaustive support from knowledgeable mentors who can share their experiences of establishing their own successful companies. Deutsche Telekom also offers comprehensive seed funding of up to 300,000 euros.

¡§With hub:raum, our incubator in Berlin, we wish to promote promising business ideas and establish contact with innovative talent so as to recognize innovations and growth markets and tap into new business fields early on. The incubator represents an important interface between the flexibly and highly responsive startup scene and the corporate world,¡¨ explained Thomas Kiessling, Chief Product & Innovation Officer at Telekom.

Interested startups can apply right away to participate in the program by visiting www.hubraum.telekom.com. Approximately ten to fifteen startups are to be included each year. Deutsche Telekom has well-known expert mentors on board including alando co-founder and managing director of eBay Deutschland for many years, Jörg Rheinboldt.

Im Focus: Can the immune system be boosted against Staphylococcus aureus by delivery of messenger RNA?

Staphylococcus aureus is a feared pathogen (MRSA, multi-resistant S. aureus) due to frequent resistances against many antibiotics, especially in hospital infections. Researchers at the Paul-Ehrlich-Institut have identified immunological processes that prevent a successful immune response directed against the pathogenic agent. The delivery of bacterial proteins with RNA adjuvant or messenger RNA (mRNA) into immune cells allows the re-direction of the immune response towards an active defense against S. aureus. This could be of significant importance for the development of an effective vaccine. PLOS Pathogens has published these research results online on 25 May 2017.

Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) is a bacterium that colonizes by far more than half of the skin and the mucosa of adults, usually without causing infections....

Im Focus: A quantum walk of photons

Physicists from the University of Würzburg are capable of generating identical looking single light particles at the push of a button. Two new studies now demonstrate the potential this method holds.

The quantum computer has fuelled the imagination of scientists for decades: It is based on fundamentally different phenomena than a conventional computer....

Im Focus: Turmoil in sluggish electrons’ existence

An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.

We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...

Im Focus: Wafer-thin Magnetic Materials Developed for Future Quantum Technologies

Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.

Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...
