Tell us a little about your background

We are a technology driven company and our work is based on enthusiasm to change the way flood protection is done today. To give you a brief history, we begun as a machinery start-up, developing a unique flood protection machine. We very quickly identified additional cases where there was a huge lack of innovation in flood protection. One of these fields was a simulation to achieve an overall process optimization – including our machines and other entities which are needed to build up a protection. The city of Cologne, which is situated near a major German river, became one of our main customers.

The background of our team is really diverse in terms of technical background and origin. To speak about myself I studied mechanical engineering and business. After three exciting years working for the Volkswagen Group on production and logistics strategy, we founded Topocare. Now we are employing mechanical, construction and software engineers alongside other specialties. But it’s not only our team but also the network around us! We are located in the region of OWL in Germany, which is known for its density of small and medium-sized technology companies with a focus on engineering and manufacturing.

The region is at the moment experiencing a real digital awakening and is strong in collaboration. To achieve our innovations, our network is made up of great people within an array of companies and research institutions.

When and how was your first approach to IOTA?

My friend and colleague Roland Draier, who originally had the idea of founding Topocare, came along with the topic IOTA – I think it was mid 2017. He is very technology affine and has a nose for new and thrilling technologies! From the begin on we were both fascinated about the possibilities that could arise out of the concept of IOTA: micro payments, no transaction costs and the tangle structure being at its core. But we needed some time to understand more about what stands behind the idea of IOTA.
