Open Innovation

Close collaborations with young companies.

We believe that joint knowledge is added knowledge. That's why we seek cooperation with innovative startups and people with new ideas. At BSH, we are convinced that we can achieve more with transparency, curiosity and knowledge sharing - for example, through external partners, joint ventures and new forms of cooperation. We want to always stay a step ahead of (digital) challenges, not simply confront them.

Innovation as a service: BSH becomes a Venture Client

Startups are a valuable source of innovative technologies and solutions for many of our business segments. We offer young companies a no strings attached opportunity for cooperation: the BSH Startup Kitchen. Therefore we search for innovative solutions - for our products and processes - and offer startups a revenue-driven partnership without venture capital or equity partnership. This makes BSH Startup Kitchen the leading venture client unit in the home appliance industry. Our vision of a partnership is to become the most valuable customer in the home appliance industry for first-class startups. We offer the chance to test and validate your product or service before it is ready for the market and in direct cooperation with a large, famous customer. In addition, we want to learn from each other and offer insight, networking and scaling capabilities - right into a long-term business relationship.
