innovation | The thyssenkrupp test tower, which is now in full operation, is the newest tourist attraction in the region, as well as a landmark of engineering, progress and innovation. Engineers are testing rope-less, high-speed elevators in the spectacular new building. On the roof at a height of 232 metres, guests can now enjoy a 360-degree view over the Black Forest and Swabian Alb
innovation | People at thyssenkrupp | A big hall, barrier tape, metal fencing. Pallets are stacked in front of the stage to make a tiered platform, a kind of arena. It’s the sort of place you might expect to find a hip start-up in Berlin, but this arena is in Essen, at the headquarters of thyssenkrupp. And today it’s the scene of a battle between eight teams in the #tkGarage, thyssenkrupp’s in-house think-tank. Sarah-Kristin Klein and Jakob Barzel are two of the 45 innovators here to compete for big money: “We need 80,000 euros from the investors today,” says Sarah.
