Co-Founder of main incubator and Head of Credit Solutions for Commerzbank’s SME Banking division

Commerzbank supports the initiative of the state of Hesse to make the Rhine-Main metropolitan region more attractive for start-ups and is a Platinum-Partner of the Tech Quartier. The Tech Quartier facilitates a closer cooperation between start-ups, banks and science and thereby increases the competitiveness of the area. The partnership perfectly complements the FinTech-engagement of Commerzbank, which is based on three pillars: the start-up Garage of comdirect, the main-incubator and CommerzVentures.

Lars Friedrich is head of Corporate Strategy at Commerzbank since 2014

As a regional bank in Hessen we are very proud to be based in one of the world’s major finance hot spots. Frankfurt will always remain one of the most important financial centers. We feel a responsibilty for the economic advancement and quality of life in Frankfurt, our home base and find it of utmost importance to commit ourselves to ensuring that the most talented brains in the financial sector stay in Frankfurt to further develop their careers and ideas. The heart of the digital start-ups must be in Frankfurt. This is what we believe in and support.

Michael Weidmann, Member of the Board of Management & Chief Sales Officer, Sparda-Bank Hessen eG

With our commitment we are contributing to developing a fintech scene in the Frankfurt financial centre on the one hand, and on the other hand, we want to promote innovative business ideas from young companies.

Željko Kaurin, Member of the Board, ING-DiBa

Banks can be the driving force of a revolution – if they manage to implement the right innovations swiftly and vigorously. What this requires is an environment that fosters creativity and entrepreneurship – the Tech Quartier is a step in the right direction to create such an environment in Frankfurt, too.

Dr. Pertlwieser, Chief Digital Officer for the Private, Wealth & Commercial Clients division, Deutsche Bank

Sponsoring the Tech Quartier is a unique opportunity to demonstrate our commitment both to innovation and to Frankfurt as Germany’s financial centre. One of the key elements of Allen & Overy’s strategy is to support and influence the future development of structures in the finance sector and beyond.

Thomas Ubber, Senior Partner of Allen & Overy, Germany

Durch die Kooperation mit dem Tech Quartier Frankfurt verfolgen wir zwei Ziele. Zum einen die Vernetzung mit Fintechs, die zur DZ BANK Gruppe und der genossenschaftlichen Idee passen. Zum anderen die Nutzung dieses kreativen Öko-Systems zur Entwicklung eigener Innovationen in Kooperation mit Fintechs oder anderer Banken.
