incube8 is a campus for early stage start-ups. Within different programs you will be supported in the development of new products and new business models. The problems of established companies are matched with your product idea. In workshops or similar formats, the companies work together with Koelnmesse's Campus Team, which offers support while carrying out the innovation project. In the selection process your product idea is evaluated together with the client and a contractual cooperation is agreed upon. For the duration of the collaboration, incube8's resources are available to all participants in the form of offices, co-working, internet, etc. directly at the exhibition grounds.
The programs each relate to one of Koelnmesse's fields of competence: Interior, Food, Digital Media & Entertainment and Digital Services.
During this time, you will work closely with the Campus team and the established company to ensure the best possible development of product and business ideas.
The innovations can be tested directly at Koelnmesse events. The experience and knowledge gained through the direct market testing at said events will support the further development of the ideas. The products and business ideas will then be presented at a special event to the industry’s decision-makers.
