Bridges Provide Connection – of Places, People, and Ideas
With Innovatour, we see ourselves as bridge engineers, connecting the technology centers’ corporate cultures with startup hubs of the world.
The bridge portrayed in our logo is modeled after the Golden Gate Bridge, the entryway to Silicon Valley, the first technology center of our time.
Pioneers from this legendary region have been revolutionizing our world for centuries with their new and innovative ideas. Here, the smallest businesses, established in cellars and garages, have evolved into the most valuable global players, leaving their marks on our daily lives.
In our day and age, Silicon Valley is no longer just a place for innovation in the midst of sunny California. Moreover, the American high-tech delta has become a representation of an inspirational mindset, which animates tech entrepreneurs and startup visionaries around the globe.
Bridges Connect Places and Bring People Together
It is our mission to guide interested entrepreneurs and executives to intriguing places, in order to join them with visionaries working on the latest ideas of tomorrow, be that from German-speaking areas or worldwide.
Throughout our journey, participants are granted insights into chosen hotspots, where startups, corporations, universities, or investors strive hand in hand for a common goal: step by step building a better world.
Bridges Connect and Are Two-Way Streets
With our journey, we do not only lead Germany out into the world but also invite the world into Germany.
On our carefully constructed tours, we wish to welcome international guests to our home and present Germany’s innovation site with its colorful technology centers. Furthermore, we hope to link our visitors with German visionaries.
With the help of Innovatour, we connect places, people, and ideas due to promoting cultural exchange and networking between participants.
We sincerely invite you, with open arms, to become a part of Innovatour’s community.
