Krefeld. Kleinewefers subsidiary Jagenberg AG has founded a company together with the start-up outfit Triclap. This venture capital finance gives the young company the opportunity to develop their business ideas into marketable products.
The five-member Triclap team is one of five digital start-ups to join the K2 Basecamp since January 2018. "Nowhere else in Krefeld are start-ups as close to the industry as we are," explains Dr. Erich Bröker, CEO of Jagenberg AG, adding "We are in regular contact with the young entrepreneurs, and create a mutually profitable symbiosis."
The globally active Jagenberg Group appreciates the great innovative potential and entrepreneurial spirit of the start-up. Besides Triclap GmbH, a wide variety of other IT specialists have so far settled into the K2 Basecamp. Bröker elaborates: "We are supporting this start-up in a variety of ways, such as mentoring, facilitating contacts and low-cost, all-inclusive office rents. In return, we gain momentum for our own digitization strategy. It’s a true win-win situation."
