We make innovation visible!
On an area of approx. 1000 m², an innovation centre is being built, which will strengthen digitalization and innovation competence for medium-sized companies and supports startups in the market entry phase. Werkbank 32 provides space for innovation and creative prototyping and offers an optimal environment for business startups through experienced mentors and a versatile network.
Let’s shape the future together – in Mittweida it’s possible! Become a part of our community!
From the idea to Werkbank32
At the end of October 2018, the first concrete ideas on how to creatively use the grounds of the old “Wäscherei” at Bahnhofstr. 32 in Mittweida were shared during a public event. Less than a year later, with the aim of celebrating the opening still in 2020, the ground-breaking ceremony followed! Construction work is in full swing and the final touches are still being made to refine the overall concept in order to start operations according to the ambitious schedule.
Werkbank32 celebrates its Topping-out Ceremony
On June 17, 2020, Volksbank Mittweida invited guests to the Werkbank32 topping-out ceremony. The halfway building point of the “Wäscherei” project, the 2nd building of the Innovation Centre, was thus officially initiated. The symbolic last nail was sunk in a straight line. Hence, nothing should stand in the way of a completion of the building without complications. The operator of Werkbank32, Mittweida innovativ Gesellschaft für Wissenstransfer mbH, is going to already move into the first building – the Villa – on July 13th, 2020.
Since the topping-out ceremony had to be smaller than desired due to corona conditions, happy moments and friendly wishes of the guests were captured in this small film for all interested parties. Have fun watching!
Opening of Werkbank32
At the end of September 2020 we celebrated the “Opening of the Villa with a view to the future” at Werkbank32. It was an exciting week full of interesting contributions. Our exclusive live opening event with greetings from Minister Schmidt of the Saxon State Ministry for Regional Development and Matthias Damm, District Administrator of the District of Central Saxony, was a nice start in the Innovation Center. We also held entertaining digital Werkbank32 Lunch Talks on the topics of blockchain, cross innovation, startup and digital security interactively.
