The Concept

The Innovation Journey takes you to tomorrow’s makers

Intensive contacts, new perspectives, concise knowledge: The Innovation Journey takes participants to where creativity and knowledge combine to create the business models of the future. An exclusive circle of participants take a journey to selected innovation hotbeds, coming into direct contact with startups, high-techs, researchers, and unconventional thinkers.

The Initiators

It all began with the idea to create a new form of exchange. The initiators are PLAN W, the Süddeutsche Zeitung’s business magazine, and Messe München’s network "Frauen verbinden" (Connecting Women). Thus the Innovation Journey combines the competences of two exceptional cooperation partners: The knowledge, the diverse range of perspectives, and expertise of the Süddeutsche publishing group join together with the organisational, industry, and network competence of the Messe München.
