Accelerating Growth with ABB’s SynerLeap

Published on by Alexis Leibbrandt

The partner ecosystem of akenza is growing!

We are glad to communicate that akenza has been accepted into ABB's SynerLeap innovation growth hub under the recommendation of Microsoft. Thanks to our participation in the program, we expect to create new synergies between the different partners of SynerLeap, namely innovative startups and various ABB divisions.

As a scale-up expanding steadily outside of the DACH region, we are looking forward to benefiting from the extensive network offered by Synerleap.

We are convinced that akenza will bring valuable IoT expertise to the members of the programs and act as an enabler in the ideation of smart solutions.

Connecting the startups with the best of ABB

SynerLeap offers mentorship and unique access to ABB's networks, clients and technology. The program brings startups and ABB together to promote innovation transfer across industries. The range of benefits for startups is broad, with access to matchmaking, mentorship, events, investment opportunities, sponsoring proofs-of-concept, and more. SynerLeap's main office is located at the ABB Head Office in Västerås, Sweden.

It is a great honor to be chosen into the innovation growth program of a global Fortune 500 company. ABB was founded in Zurich Oerlikon where we also have our main office, some 130years ago; we are very curious to find out if we can make some history together.
