The aim of the Platform for Built Environment Focused Innovations, Ventures & Enterprises (BE5) is to inform about trends and developments, to train employees of partner companies, to inspire them with agile talents for the construction sector and to establish cross-company cooperation as an important element of the change process. Within this framework, joint projects and business models are initiated with relevant players in the industry.
BE5's holistic approach is based on networking and exchange of experience, active method training (boot camps) and cross-company development workshops (makeathons) as well as hackathons, in which solutions are developed in a very short time in the form of the first functional prototypes, which create significant added value for customers and users. In pilot projects or start-ups, these solutions are concretized and tested in real-life environments and developed into marketable products and software applications.
The processing is always in the hands of interdisciplinary teams from a network of experts, start-ups, students and employees of the partner companies. BE5 offers the appropriate framework to implement creative ideas quickly and purposefully, free of existing company structures and boundaries.
