Digital Start-Up Center “Lagarde1”

November, 2018

Bamberg is already famous for its “smoked beer” and the medieval buildings that made it a UNESCO World Heritage site.

But one day this city in northern Bavaria might also be famous for innovations emanating from “Lagarde1.”

The new digital start-up center – one of 11 across the state – will help foster collaboration between companies, universities and startups on issues ranging from digital business models, logistics, Industry 4.0, e-health, big data and e-commerce.

The center, supported by some EUR 8 million in state funds as part of the Gründerland.Bayern initiative, is scheduled to open in 2019.
