At the Innolution Nights in Baden-Würtemberg, startups and companies present their innovative solutions and products. The participants can expect a lot of learnings, pitches, recruiting opportunities and fun at the individual sessions – of course also at the subsequent networking party.

Among the visitors are representatives from established companies, founders and startups, job seekers, students, business angels and investors as well as representatives of the media. Each host offers an individual program in its site or a central location – from a workshop to a short brainstorming session, from a lecture to a discussion, expo, or a small recruiting event. A lot is possible.

The diesel medal for the best prospective idea will also be present itself in Stuttgart.


Dr. Edgar Jochheim is dealing with the question of whether it is possible to generate the right ideas systematically and efficiently in order to develop unrivaled products for the future.

In his lecture “How to invent almost anything” he will present effective thought methods in the framework of method-based innovation, especially the theory of inventive problem solving TRIZ, and their application to invent “almost anything”. Furthermore, he complements the “insourcing” approach of innovation with the opportunities of the external generation of ideas through open innovation and then presents the new competition: the diesel medal for the best prospective idea for medium-sized companies, which is aimed at students of the STEM fields.
