In its core business, BLEISTAHL, like many other medium-sized German companies, is currently 100% dependent on the conventional powertrain. We are working on innovations to gradually reduce this dependency. In order to create new ideas, Dr. Köhler (owner of the Bleistahl Group) travelled to Silicon Valley to get further ideas and learn how the ecosystem works there. We have learned that the biggest challenge is not the lack of ideas, but the transfer of these ideas to the companies. STARTUP AUTOBAHN offers a platform to support us with this transfer. New ideas, suggestions and solutions can be promoted by joint projects. It is a great momentum to react to the ever more flexible and faster developments and to create future perspectives.
