Do you offer solutions for the digital transformation of SMEs, industry and public administration? Then this is the right place for you! The active matching of IT SMEs with users of new technologies and with start-ups for possible collaborations is one of our central offers. We integrate your innovative products and solutions into our portfolio, so you become a solution provider for our users. Form consortia with other enablers from IT SMEs and start-ups to bring forward-looking solutions for digital transformation to the market.
Among other things, we promote the further development of your business models, digital added value creation through new business concepts, collaborations and synergies, joint ventures and digital start-ups in the Aachen Area. In our first year in the DIGITAL CHURCH, we were able to initiate over 100 successful matches.
This central working platform of the digitalHUB Aachen consists of a public and a closed area, which is only accessible to HUB members (“Member Space”). On it you will find all offers, the portfolio and project exchanges, possible cooperation partners for your projects as well as a marketplace with the latest innovations of our members.
We include enablers with their solutions, concepts and digital business models in a portfolio. This serves the digitalHUB team as a basis for the matching. Member companies can send us their own or published calls for tenders. We check whether there are matches in our portfolio of users and digital start-ups and refer potential partners for the respective tender. This allows you to cover a broader spectrum than on your own. Our portfolio enables consortia and provider alliances.
Our diverse event formats offer you the opportunity to talk to creative solution providers for your current challenges, to make contacts, to find possible collaboration partners or to inform yourself about current developments.

SMEs meet start-ups for exchange and networking. Selected start-ups presented their business models. This way you can learn first-hand about concrete new business ideas, products as well as disruptive and digital innovations in your industry and discuss them with entrepreneurs, start-ups and experts. The event is organised in cooperation with the Aachener Entrepreneurship Team.
Informal meetings in a small circle on a specific topic in a particularly personal atmosphere. They facilitate a particularly fruitful dialogue. Are you a member company? Suggest “your” topic!
The atec is an interdisciplinary innovation conference that the RWTH Innovation GmbH (formerly the Transfer- und Gründerzentrum [Transfer and Business Incubation Centre] of RWTH Aachen University) has been organising together with the digitalHUB since 2017.
On the first Thursday of every month, we offer all HUB members the opportunity to bring in a topic to share with the community, discuss it or find possible solutions. The exchange takes place in a relaxed atmosphere over pizza and beer. Are you interested in organising a thematic evening yourself? Then simply get in touch with us! firstname.lastname@example.org
“Hackathon” combines the terms “hack” (tool, solution) and “marathon”. Companies in all areas of IT use this format when they need new mobile applications, multimedia programmes or other software quickly. During a hackathon, teams of digital hobbyists such as programmers, graphic designers designers, interface designers and other creative minds form spontaneously. They work together, usually between one and three days, on a focus you have set. For example, they might develop a customised app for your specific project goal. Your benefit: The time and costs for developing your new app are minimal.
Would you like to organise a hackathon? Then our HUBathon is just the right format for you! We will support you in organising it and provide you with an inspiring venue at the DIGITAL CHURCH! Feel free to contact us! email@example.com
