The Prototype Fund x newthinking: How to foster grass-roots innovation in tech.
As funders, we aim at supporting innovative, crazy, nerdy and dearlyneeded tech projects. This gave us a deep insight and understanding intowhat the tech ecosystem in Germany needs in order to thrive. We will talk about our work at Prototype Fund and about what holds tech projects back, which factors make them successful, and why sometimes less is more.Elisa Lindinger; Adriana Groh
