Our Services

Digital solutions that match you

Test before invest

Are you thinking about introducing a new digital solution? Before you invest, we offer you the opportunity to test the transformation you are thinking about. Get an insight into systems that are already working! Discuss with our experts the benefits and challenges and whether the solutions fit your business model! From metal printers, digital production processes, back office automation, marketing AND cybersecurity to complex artificial intelligence systems: we are your contact for the digital transformation that suits you.

Skills & Training

Would you like to prepare your organisation for the digital transformation?

At EDITH you can learn about the whole range of digital aspects. How do I become more visible in social media?  How do I implement basic processes of digitalisation? And how do I secure my company against cyberattacks? In cooperation with you, we develop workshops, seminars and other event formats to qualify your employees. Or provide you with individual advice: How to make the best use of a data centre? How to best cover your expertise needs? And how to reduce your carbon footprint with the possibilities of digitalisation? We offer you the best knowledge and bring you up to digital ball level in the topics that actually bring you and your organisation forward.

Support to find investors

Digital solutions are not only useful and secure the future viability of your organisation – in most cases they involve investments in software, hardware and resources. We put you in touch with funding sources: from private investors or venture capital to funding programmes from the state and federal governments or the EU to business angels, banks, private equity donors. We are also pleased to support you in formulating business models and business plans. In short, whatever your investment questions are, we bring you together with partners who can help you further.

Innovation ecosystem & networking

You are not alone: Other companies, organisations, research institutions, universities or colleges have developed innovations and best practices from which you can benefit quickly and easily. Use our network! Develop new ideas and exchange solutions! Work in overarching projects or be inspired by new digital solutions to sustainability.
