We believe that German Mittelstand and family businesses should share learnings and join forces especially in the current Corona crisis. That’s why we started a program to exchange on most pressing topics and to coordinate initiatives to fight the virus. The program is open to members and non-members of Maschinenraum.
We identify, aggregate and discuss common challenges and questions that companies are facing in their organisations at the moment. Together we share best-practices, solutions and expertise to professionally coordinate the crisis internally.
We organise virtual exchange formats bringing subject-matter experts of different Mittelstand companies together.
We help to accelerate initiatives to produce rare medical products to fight the virus. We share ongoing initiatives, aggregate spare resources and connect to solution enablers (e.g. 3D printing) across industries.
We cooperate with global initiatives to support matching demands with free capacities of German Mittelstand companies.
We open our virtual Mittelstand community to connect with others and to share documents, news and other insights. We help to connect decision-makers and employees across organisations.
12th May, 10:00 - 11:00 am
Internal communication in times of uncertainty. We will exchange experiences about applied formats and tools, content creation as well as success factors and pitfalls.
27th May, 03:00 - 04:00 pm
IT Services in times of new and remote working models. We exchange on organizational needs and rising demands to cyber security.
Together with leading Mittelstand companies we identified and started exchanging on four major topics.
Sharing of comprehensive and transparent communication formats that help to promote cohesion and keep employees up-to-date. Discussing technologies that work best to reach remote workers.
Exchanging on upcoming patterns of cyber crime. Discussing data security issues during remote work and ways how to handle hardware lease.
Discussing tools and routines to enable efficient remote work. Share best-practices to keep-up employees motivation and mental health.
Share insights on trends that are accelerated by COVID-19. Discuss hypotheses how the business- and stakeholder models look after the crisis.
Maschinenraum is a shared innovation-ecosystem for German Mittelstand and family-businesses. We curate formats to exchange and practically address innovation topics.
During the Corona crisis we strive for open exchange that goes beyond our members to accelerate learnings and increase impact.
