Artificial intelligence is taking performance and efficiency in industrial manufacturing to a new level. With digital ventures such as FactoryPal or InspectifAI, Körber is raising the bar here.
Selection Day is a good occasion to unlock the secret of success of company building at Körber. At this event, five teams pitch their projects, which they have previously vetted for coherence and feasibility in a week of intensive boot camp work. The atmosphere is that of a typical start-up, a fresh, high-strung cheerfulness, with all the teams speaking without notes and often improvising during their twelve-minute slots. At the end of the day, only one project makes it to the next project phase – Selection Day in fact.
However, this event is less about a whimsical think tank and all the more about market size, untapped potential and customer base. With LOI, FTEs and EBITDA. The message is obvious: beyond all start-up romanticism, the key is whether an idea will have real market impact.
