At the beginning of 2020, when Corona was spreading rapidly across the world, we all faced new challenges. But new challenges need new solutions. We from LH MAQER are proud to be a founding partner of the initiative Startups Against Corona, that brought together over 450 startups and 70 organizations (e.g. BMW, Bosch, Audi, MAN, Siemens or SAP) to fight together in times of crisis.
Startups Against Corona showcases the effectiveness of open innovation even in difficult times – and how LafargeHolcim leveraged this opportunity to deliver immediate solutions to challenges arising during the pandemic. We identified 9 COVID related pain points, evaluated more than 100 global startup solutions and kicked off 6 successful pilot projects in areas such as manufacturing or communications.
