One in common.

#togetherone2.0 – in line with our motto “Enable Future Business”!

The continuation of the #gemeinsamdeins program focuses more strongly on the topic of digitization: In the future, successful existence in the market will depend crucially on how well small businesses and the self-employed will have adapted to the requirements of the digital economy. Therefore, thematic workshops on digital tools and corresponding practical assistance are at the top of the agenda. Other topics for making business models fit for the future are sustainability and, above all, flexibility. Kompass Frankfurt increasingly offers moderated networking events – digital and live – for active exchange with other self-employed people.

The last few months have shown how crucial an agile network is. So, be there. Go digital and get connected!

Now at #togetherone. The program is supported by the JPMorgan Chase Foundation and Wirtschaftsförderung Frankfurt am Main GmbH.

Gastronomy: starting point or turning point? 🚀

▶️ With Sabine Steinbeck, we look at the status quo in the restaurant industry. What were the challenges of the past few months? Why does a change in thinking need to take place? What role do consumers play?

The pandemic was like a burning glass on the catering industry. A rethink seems to be only a matter of time. Pressure is increasing from more and more directions. However, it is not only the developments of the Corona era that provoke a rethinking of gastronomic businesses, but also a rapid digital acceleration that continues to demand modern solutions and approaches.💡
Both the growing competition and the demands of the company’s own guests have changed significantly in recent years. In addition, there are reviews from the Internet, which can also have a direct impact on your own business. The stationary gastronomy industry has to face new challenges all the time. Technological innovations continue to pour into the market – from digital menus to table orders to guest engagement apps can transform the experience.

Is the retail business model still viable

▶️Frederik Gottschling @visionsbuero and moderator @scheuring.sandra look at the retail situation❗️
#startupfrankfurt #retail #futureretail #downtown #retail

Goodbye retail❓ Does the business model of stationary retail still work❓

Pandemics and digitization are not the only reasons for the tense situation in the trade. The development of customer needs is also gathering pace. In addition to the adjustments to the business model, it is also necessary to strengthen the joint appearance in order to increase the attractiveness for customers. What in e-commerce is called product bundling or the time spent on the website are aspects that stationary retail must transfer to the city centers. The exchange among individual traders plays a decisive role in this. But what exactly are the challenges that need to be overcome in the near future in order to remain competitive? 🔜

The shopping process must be viewed holistically and be an experience for the customer. 🛒

Short & to-go:
👉 Increase/optimize shopping carts
👉 Improve logistics
👉 Emotionalize sales
👉 Communicate strengths and service quality
👉 Making shopping an experience

Go digital and get connected!


Store local products online?
This is what many customers would have liked during the crisis. But only a few smaller stores also offer their products online.

How can retailers take advantage of this change in smart customer behavior? In the interview with Anina Modrzynski, one of two founders of @smartgolocal, you can learn how the start-up helps Frankfurt stores to be present online as well.
With their solution, bestseller products get more reach and retailers can bridge the gap between online and offline business without having to operate an online store themselves.

Green is the future

There is hardly a company that does not advertise its sustainability. The truth lies somewhere between greenwashing and genuine effort.

But how can start-ups really position themselves sustainably? What specifically should be paid attention to? And why is it a chance that you can no longer do without?

An interview with Lisa Wagner @savetheplanetinstyle sustainability consultant about eco-labels and ultrafastfashion, consumer stop and supply chain laws.

Go digital and get connected!

💻🌐 Corona was a wake-up call that companies should not ignore. This is because customer wishes will have to be perceived differently in the future. The sales-oriented “old world” has had its day. Markus Dalka, marketing consultant, is convinced of this. The new marketing world is thus faced with the question: what do people really want and who is actually behind my target group. Digital channels and social media are accelerators that need to be dealt with. The interview provides concrete tips on how channels can be used profitably for community building.
