Room Concept

Stuttgart, Wilhelmsbau (near Rotebühlplatz)

Digital Supply Chain / Logistics and Data-driven Technologies
To foster open collaboration, the Connectory offers a flexible format without physical walls to encourage connection among members and to facilitate various activities such as workshops, design sprints, hackathons, or events. Physical dividers can create a “room” to support co-innovation projects with internal and external groups.

Projects in the Connectory are cross-domain and cross-functional, and often include external parties such as startups, universities or other corporates. Temporary co-creation project teams rotate through the space and work on innovation workshops and project sprints. One fixed developer team of 20 people is working on digitalization and automation projects.


The Concept

The co-innovation space is focused on three main activities: partner and co-creation, educational experience and corporate projects. Each Connectory has an innovation focus – e.g. IoT or Digital Supply chain –and connects with the local tech ecosystem and startup community in each location, expanding on a global network.

The goal of the Connectory is to empower opportunities for Bosch with new IoT products, business models and services to become a leading IoT company in the near future. The Connectory is a physical place to connect the Bosch of tomorrow by utilizing three critical elements: cross-domain, cross-functional, and active within the external IoT ecosystem
