We’re pleased to finally shine a light on our partners HELLA Fast Forward, previously known as HELLA Ventures. For those of you who haven’t heard of them, HELLA is an internationally renowned company with over 37,000 employees across 134 locations in more than 35 countries. “The HELLA Group develops and manufactures lighting, electronic components, complete vehicle modules and systems for the automotive industry. With more than 6,000 people working in research and development, HELLA is one of the most important innovation drivers on the market.” Now, they’ve set up a project lab at our new location, Factory Görlitzer Park and we can’t wait to see the collaborative potentials unfold.
HELLA has joined Factory with HELLA Fast Forward for its dynamic ecosystem of startups, corporates, and freelancers, its ‘connecting’ space as well as its focus on emerging technologies that have the potential to impact the future path of various industries.
Their vision is to ‘Dream. Do. Disrupt.’ and we couldn’t think of a more adequate place for this to become a reality. HELLA is a company with a vision not too dissimilar from our own, and the new partnership will enable our two communities to become one. When discussing their new space here, Petronela Sandulache states, “HELLA has joined Factory with HELLA Fast Forward for its dynamic ecosystem of startups, corporates, and freelancers, its ‘connecting’ space as well as its focus on emerging technologies that have the potential to impact the future path of various industries.”
They’re bringing masses of expertise and knowledge to the table, with over 130 years of experience in the automotive industry. Their mission is to innovate, and now they want Factory members to be a part of that too. “This is a tremendous opportunity for us to collaborate and build new solutions together, and at the same time learn from each other’s diverse backgrounds, experiences, and challenges, while still being united by one common purpose: innovation with a positive impact for all.”
Sounds interesting right? Well, if you’re a member and the kind of individual who thinks outside the box, they’re looking to collaborate with you. “The type of people we are looking for are those people who go beyond the business-as-usual mindset and dare to embrace what we call ‘forward thinking’. We offer the opportunity to work on game-changing ideas, along with others, to create what could be the next solution that shapes the future of mobility, today. It is all about: Dream. Do. Disrupt.”
