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: The geometry of an electron determined for the first time

Physicists at the University of Basel are able to show for the first time how a single electron looks in an artificial atom. A newly developed method enables them to show the probability of an electron being present in a space. This allows improved control of electron spins, which could serve as the smallest information unit in a future quantum computer. The experiments were published in Physical Review Letters and the related theory in Physical Review B.

The spin of an electron is a promising candidate for use as the smallest information unit (qubit) of a quantum computer. Controlling and switching this spin or...

Im Focus: Self-repairing batteries

UTokyo engineers develop a way to create high-capacity long-life batteries

Engineers at the University of Tokyo continually pioneer new ways to improve battery technology. Professor Atsuo Yamada and his team recently developed a...

Im Focus: Quantum Cloud Computing with Self-Check

With a quantum coprocessor in the cloud, physicists from Innsbruck, Austria, open the door to the simulation of previously unsolvable problems in chemistry, materials research or high-energy physics. The research groups led by Rainer Blatt and Peter Zoller report in the journal Nature how they simulated particle physics phenomena on 20 quantum bits and how the quantum simulator self-verified the result for the first time.

Many scientists are currently working on investigating how quantum advantage can be exploited on hardware already available today. Three years ago, physicists...

Im Focus: Accelerating quantum technologies with materials processing at the atomic scale

'Quantum technologies' utilise the unique phenomena of quantum superposition and entanglement to encode and process information, with potentially profound benefits to a wide range of information technologies from communications to sensing and computing.

However a major challenge in developing these technologies is that the quantum phenomena are very fragile, and only a handful of physical systems have been...

Im Focus: A step towards probabilistic computing

Working group led by physicist Professor Ulrich Nowak at the University of Konstanz, in collaboration with a team of physicists from Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz, demonstrates how skyrmions can be used for the computer concepts of the future

When it comes to performing a calculation destined to arrive at an exact result, humans are hopelessly inferior to the computer. In other areas, humans are...
