"We are interested in sustainable, equal partnerships with technology start-ups"
Radevormwald/Berlin, March 6, 2018. At the beginning of 2018, after around one year of preparations, Gira Giersiepen GmbH & Co. KG (www.gira.com) launched the start-up initiative "GNERATOR" (www.gnerator.com) with its headquarters in Berlin. "Outside of the Silicon Valley, Berlin is one of the locations currently experiencing a boom of digital information technology start-ups", explains Gira managing director Christian Feltgen. "With 'GNERATOR', we provide young technology companies based there with a platform of their own, providing they are a good fit with Gira. Our aim is to connect innovative start-ups with Gira. That is why we are looking for long-term technology and business partnerships." Matthias Nawrocki, senior technology manager at Gira, is head of the "GNERATOR" programme, which has its office in the co-working community "WeWork". The medium-sized industrial company from the Bergisches Land has already agreed its first collaborative partnership: Gira has bought minority shares in the Berlin-based hardware and software specialists Senic (www.senic.com), founded in 2013.
