We talk to him in a remote interview, recorded in May 2020. Dorian is already a long time robotics fan, who has been working for more than 15 years in robotics, even participating in the robotics soccer world cup with the team Darmstadt Dribblers (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC3jFWB-VP6bFcIFtb-czCcQ). Energy robotics is also a startup, spun off TU Darmstadt (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Technische_Universit%C3%A4t_Darmstadt). The Rhine-Main-based startup offers software to make robots operate autonomously, as well as enable them to be operated remotely, in case this is needed. They are called “robotics”, but they don’t build robots or any hardware.
     
    We are providing a very easy user interface to program “missions” for the robots.

The Darmstadt-based startup offers software to make robots operate autonomously, as well as enable them to be operated remotely, in case this is needed. There are very remote places, running semi-autonomously e.g. platforms to drill for oil and gas (https://www.offshore-technology.com/features/inside-the-first-fully-automated-offshore-platform/). Nonetheless, these places need regular inspections e.g. gas leaks, which can be performed by robots with the Energy Robotics software, on different software platforms.
     
    The robots record automatically the pictures and data on its automated round.

They are wealthy enough to have money to invest, but in Germany, the normal threshold to enter the wealth management services of large banks is 2 million Euros, and they do not qualify yet.

According to Lars, they have approx. 15% of the share of wallet of their clients, which they aim to increase.

    Airive wants to change how Companies buy Mobility Services

    We offer Corporate Mobility Procurement 4.0 as a SaaS model
    Markus Puhl, Founder Airive
    The founderWe talk to Markus Puhl (https://www.linkedin.com/in/markus-puhl-31355b112/), founder of Airive (http://www.airive.de/). The startup is part of Next Mobility Lab, which is headquartered in Mainz (https://www.nextmobilitylab.com/; https://www.linkedin.com/company/next-mobility-lab/), but also has a location in Boston.
    During this interview, we are talking to him on how corporate mobility has changed and how he wants to change it even more with “Corporate Mobility Procurement 4.0.” 
    The market we are aiming for are 16.000 companies in Germany alone, who are operating car fleets bigger than 20 cars.

Try our partner Bitwala with this affiliate link here http://bit.ly/2w01ZyeThe StartupCurrently, large corporates invite mobility providers to bid for their contracts on a regular basis, so they can get the best price. This is a hassle for small companies with corporate car fleets of 50 cars in one country but takes on quite different dimensions if a company has to provide mobility to thousands of employees across several continents. All trips need to be efficient in terms of time, costs, and CO2.   
    There was a feeling in the market … to end the manual mode of purchasing corporate mobility.

    Airive offers analytics services and a purchase platform where corporates can ask for bids for their required services.

German startup scene first hand

The podcast provides me with first hand insights on the German startup scene. I like that the guys invite guest from much more than just ecommerce startups and that they also cover the country outside of Berlin. I also learned that Frankfurt emerges as a startup hub.
