How we boost your business

The innovation boost for your company

Companies depend on agile, digital and innovative business processes to remain competitive. With digital solutions and the know-how of tech startups, they can respond more flexibly to new requirements in the business world.

But how do business customers find the right startup? That's what we developed our TechBoost Connect matchmaking platform for. Here you can access innovative solutions from over 750 verified B2B startups and thus one of the largest startup programs in Germany. Their expertise covers all topics and industries. Highest security is guaranteed: All the startups' solutions run on the Open Telekom Cloud in compliance with the German Data Protection Act (DSGVO).

How does matchmaking work on TechBoost Connect?

You identify your challenges and post them as a challenge on the TechBoost Connect matchmaking platform. It's easy, intuitive - and anonymous if you wish. Our TechBoost startups apply for the challenge with suitable solutions and you then select the right partner from the matches. Our experts advise you, supervise the collaboration and handle all processes from purchasing and sales to contracting.

Set Challenge now

Innovation workshop

TechBoost offers even more than matchmaking: As a Corporate Innovation Partner, we conduct innovation workshops with you. In this way, you get to know your core competencies and can develop growth strategies. For this purpose, you select the most suitable startup solutions for your current challenges from a pre-selection made by us. In a workshop moderated by us, these present themselves and a decision is made on further cooperation. Subsequently, the suitable innovation is tested in a joint proof-of-concept.

Logo Spacific GmbH


The startup Spacific applied for the challenge with its self-developed measurement app. The experts from TechBoost connected Emons Spedition GmbH | DIGITAL Projekt Team and Spacific GmbH and supported the cooperation.


Success Story


Emons | DIGITAL had already dealt intensively with the underlying problem of missing dimensions of shipments in advance. On the basis of the "XR SCAN" measurement app from Spacific, an innovative solution for shipment recording was developed. The shipper of a shipment can scan his package with the app and add all shipment-relevant data. The dimensions are automatically recorded as a 3-D model. In this way, the dispatcher can use the actual measurement data to plan the loading capacities of a truck more efficiently and increase capacity utilization.
