ACE Zurich chapter is pleased to present "Pushing radical innovation in corporations – Bodenschatz Startup factory" seminar in collaboration with Innopunk.

As if it wasn’t hard enough to build a positive corporate culture, a truly innovative company has to foster two different cultures. One culture aims to be highly efficient, the other tries not to be efficient. One strives for perfection, the other one works with “just good enough”.

In order to manage both worlds a company needs to form five roles and to find four diverging personalities: the achievers, the killers, the explorers and the socializers. In his keynote Jean-Philippe Hagmann will dive into this topic on the fundamentals of radical innovation as wells as on mindsets, cultures and roles.

Christoph Meili is CEO of The Startup Factory, a spin-off of Bodenschatz, a small industrial company in the sanitary branch. The aim of the spin-off is to grow businesses for small and medium companies, which are facing dramatic changes in their business model. Bodenschatz is the first use case on which this business model is applied and currently four different start-ups/ideas are united together in the Startup Factory.
