We’re a focal point for innovation with a simple, practical role: we connect startups to decision makers within Deutsche Bank. In this way, we help Deutsche Bank adopt emerging technology solutions that enhance, improve and reimagine the way we serve our clients.
The global Deutsche Bank Innovation Labs team has a clear proposition: Work out what the bank's business and supporting functions need and help find solutions through the vast network of startups across the world. We make it straightforward for startups to find their way into Deutsche Bank, so ideas quickly become reality. And while identifying the right partner is helpful, we go one step further. Through our five Innovation Lab spaces, we provide an environment where technologies, concepts and ideas can be tested rigorously and rapidly, against real-world requirements.
We take a measured approach to innovation, serving as a powerful bridge between the demands of our businesses and the technology of exciting startups. We are flexible, but quick to respond – and we look for the same in a partner. Often, connections happen modestly and organically with companies. We seek organizations that demonstrate good leadership, show strong potential and can articulate a clear value to Deutsche Bank. The process includes:
- Identifying high-growth technology companies
- Evaluating potential solutions
- Matching solutions with challenges and opportunities within Deutsche Bank
- Connecting companies to stakeholders within the bank
- Facilitating the adoption of these technologies across the firm.
Every day we seek answers to questions that will define the future of financial services. Technological innovation and collaboration with emerging companies is essential.
We're Deutsche Bank's eyes and ears into the innovation ecosystem — the startups, the new technologies and new business models.
We’re the bridge that connects startups into Deutsche Bank — the decision makers, the partners and the purchasers.
