The Pioneers History
Full Management Buyout
In 2022, the remaining startup300 shares were bought back by Pioneers to lay the ground for a further scaling phase of the Corporate Innovation and Venture Building services.
Launch of Pioneer.Climate and Pioneers.Peak
To increase our focus on sustainable innovation and our environmental and social impact, we launched Pioneers.Climate. A Pioneers “special force”, where we focus on helping clients measure their CO2 footprint and develop ESG strategies to get closer to Net Zero. At the same time, we started our own multi-corporate venture building hub – Pioneers.Peak. There, we work with first partners such as OMV, Porsche and fasthub BOSCH on validating internal ideas in a collaborative and creative environment.
Focus on purpose-driven innovation
At Pioneers we want to contribute to a better future of society and use our know-how to support entrepreneurs solving the big challenges of this planet. In 2021, we have started the first initiatives on this topic and are collaborating with corporates and public organizations e.g. with the European Investment Bank on the Social Innovation Tournament to drive purpose-driven innovation.
