GLUCE and Neckar-Hub combine powers to form an innovation machine

With the Neckar-Hub, GLUCE is pleased to have found a reliable and competent partner for start-up incubation. Both partners understand each other when it comes to innovation and see how they can benefit from each other’s strengths. Together we will drive innovation by offering tailored services for inventors and start-ups from a single source in the future. There are numerous synergies from which inventors / start-ups and their customers benefit equally. Together we make innovations experienceable and understandable.  

The Neckar-Hub is a start-up and innovation center in the heart of Tübingen, which accompanies the entire value chain of a company – from the idea to the sale. Its success is based on three pillars: 

  • SMART.COWORKING: Coworking on 700m² full of creativity, hard work, team spirit, exchange and good moods. In addition to workplaces, they offer conference and meeting rooms. 
  • OPEN.INNOVATION: As an innovation center, they bring start-ups together with SMEs or larger companies, thereby promoting growth, progress and innovation. 
  • RAPID.INCUBATION: Rapid.Incubation describes a coaching program in which startups are professionally advised with the help of the rapid venture workflow principle and developed into sustainably successful companies. The start-ups receive the capital they need to grow at an early stage. 

The offer is rounded off by start-up and funding advice as well as an investor network with approx. 600 investors, whereby several million euros have already been acquired for future-oriented innovations. 

And the best thing about our collaboration is that the Neckar-Hub is currently in the process of expanding its concept to other start-up hotspots and creating additional co-working spaces on site. This and our partnership shorten the path to innovation immensely.
