Our initiators


The Ruhr region can look back on a long tradition of start-ups: Germany's industrial heart beat here for many years, and numerous pioneers and thought leaders came from the region. It is precisely this kind of entrepreneurial spirit that is needed today more than ever - after all, it is about the successful transformation of the Ruhr region into a region of the future. Thanks to innovative business models and new know-how, start-ups in particular are a decisive success factor when it comes to accelerating change processes. In order for start-ups to thrive, however, they need an appropriate breeding ground, i.e. an optimal "ecosystem". The BRYCK innovation and start-up center initiated by the RAG-Stiftung is intended to make a significant contribution to this.

"The Innovation and Start-up Center is representative of renewal and transformation in the Ruhr region, a wealth of ideas, a culture of innovation and sustainable thinking.“ - Bernd Tönjes
