Helmut Haimerl

Developing innovations across systems

The increasing dynamism in the business environment poses new challenges for companies. Entire value chains are rearranged across system boundaries. Cross-border cooperation in alliances is gaining in importance, and new potential for success can be created through work on the ecosystem.

As an innovation consultant, Helmut Haimerl brings his experience to complex projects in technology-oriented companies. His focus is on the “outside” and “tomorrow”. In innovation alliances, he works on (new) ecosystems and disruptive business models.

These projects are often supported by the innovation programs of the Federal Government or the European Union. Technology funding brings together the know-how of the partners in a protected area and limits the economic risks.

With this highly specialized know-how, he creates new potential for success!

And by the way:

  • He lives on the Isar River and loves this fast-flowing river

  • Is stubborn and sometimes a bit thick-headed

  • His two sons keep him on his toes!
