German innovation studio nFRONTIER launches to accelerate high-tech product development for industrial clients
As companies face shorter product life cycles and narrower time-to-market windows for successful
innovations, they have to react fast to dynamic markets and changing customer expectations. As a result, companies are pushed to constantly change by adapting their business models and products, often putting the core of their company at risk.
To address these challenges, a newly founded German tech startup nFRONTIER, today announced its official launch to help accelerate high-tech product development for industrial clients and SMBs. Fueled by emerging technologies, benefitting from unique market insights and pioneering teams, and, crucially, using a proprietary A to L operating model, nFRONTIER announced its aiming to reshape today’s product creation patterns.
With its impact-driven innovation studio, nFRONTIER believes it can accelerate the development and launch of industrial products – making the process faster, more successful, more digital, and sustainable.
Following the U.S. President John F. Kennedyʼs famous 1960 “New Frontier” speech and the call for technological advancement, the three nFRONTIER founding partners are no strangers to the international high-tech community: As former executives of 3D printer system innovation leader BigRep, the partners have teamed up to create a novel kind of company, rooted in the know-how and experience gleaned in high-tech product development: Ms Pervin Adiyaman (CAO – Chief Administrative Officer), Dr Stephan Beyer (CCO – Chief Commercial Officer) and Daniel Buening (CEO – Chief Executive Officer).
nFRONTIER aims to support companies undergoing strong transformational changes of their core business, such as SMBs as well as corporates facing pressure to innovate, either because the status quo has changed dramatically or because they don’t possess the in-house capabilities to harness emerging digital technologies.
“Our mission goes beyond finding the best way forward for our clients. We also consider the dynamic social, ecological, and economic changes forcing us to cross borders into uncharted territory“, explains Daniel Buening, CEO nFRONTIER GmbH. “At the core of our services is a smartly designed, proprietary operating model we call A to L, designed to facilitate product development and business models with a lasting impact and added value. From strategy and design to execution and success: This is how companies can rise to meet the challenges of our time.”
nFRONTIER team consists a curated network of partners and experts who connect in a “matchmaking” process with clients to create a synergy of disciplines, creativity, and market insights. This process is carried out by inter-disciplinary nFRONTIER teams, put together to a customer’s specific needs, and may include, but are not limited to, designers and engineers, software specialists as well as finance and business experts.
The three founders of nFRONTIER have demonstrated their capabilities to predict global market trends and create products for industrial customers around the world while managing BigRep, the Berlin-based manufacturer of the biggest (FDM) serial built large-format 3D-printers. With Dr. Beyer as CEO of the business, Buening (CIO) driving innovation through powerful 3D-printed prototypes, and Adiyaman running corporate administration, they built the start-up into a global brand and innovation leader in additive manufacturing.
The creation of nFRONTIER is the latest landmark founding in Berlin’s vibrant start-up and high-tech environment: In the past few years, the German capital has evolved as one of Europe’s most dynamic innovation and high-tech hubs, offering excellent education and science infrastructure, attracting both creative founders and corporate investors
