INNOVATIVEWho says innovation is not long-lasting?
As the innovation leader in our market, we have been setting many benchmarks for over 50 years - not only for our customers, but also for ourselves and the entire construction and real estate industry.
In order to go even further, we have created the Innovation Center, whose slogan sums up our ambition "Let's innovate real estate". Centralizing innovations, developing new ones, and setting priorities are our goals for an efficient and targeted digital transition of our current business models and the invention of completely new models. We are constantly researching and proposing solutions that are ahead of their time. The Innovation Center is at the heart of our innovation network, supported by research hubs in specialised areas.
From the idea to new business models
We design our new business models based on ideas that come in via our internal platform or during our Ideathon. But we also draw inspiration from the ecosystem of external creators.
In this context, the partnerships we form with start-ups play a very important role. They develop new technologies and disruptive models and spearhead the digital transition. Experience shows how essential it is, especially in certain sectors, to address the issues of the future at the right time. Few companies are able to respond to these challenges alone. For this reason, the intensive exchange with innovative start-ups and a network of like-minded partners is essential.
Our Scouting team identifies and evaluates startups from around the world according to their potential and initiates possible partnerships with Drees & Sommer. The search for startups is based on internal requests in order to meet the concrete needs of our clients, but also on a trend and technology monitoring approach. This enables us to identify major movements and to assess their relevance to your field of activity.
