How does Haus61 function?
Rachid Touzani (CEO of Cargosteps and co-founder of Haus61): Our goal is to exchange ideas with different people from different companies in the logistics industry, and to find the right partners for the right start-ups. From this cooperation projects should be driven ahead and come to fruition.
What advantage does QCS have as a partner?
Nico Haltmayer: Our biggest advantage as a partner is that we can come along with an idea or a problem on the topic of digitalization, present it and cooperate with the appropriate start-up to develop a solution.
How much interest is there from companies in Haus61?
Rachid Touzani: At this point there are many requests from companies who would like to get involved. It is apparent that medium sized businesses are very interested in the idea of start-ups. But they often lack the time or manpower to set up something of this kinds and remain up to date: to know where the important trade events are and what possibilities there are for cooperating with various start-ups. Most of them would have to found a company of their own, or at least establish an in-house department in their firm.
