How we work

1. Our sphere of activity is Travel & Mobility Tech

We are passionate about technological change and the opportunity to transform tomorrow’s travel with digital solutions.

2. We think and act entrepreneurially

We purposely take entrepreneurial risks and test out radical new ideas. If something goes well, we scale it up. If something doesn’t, we shut it down.

3. We speak Startup and Corporate

We are an integral part of the tech ecosystem, but also feel at home in the corporate environment. By combining both worlds, we discover unique opportunities and build bridges in order to realize them.

4. We leverage the power of our parent company

We focus on areas where our expertise, skills, and values of the Lufthansa Group give us a head start in the digital world.

5. We’re driven by data, not opinions

The truest currency for our ventures is market feedback. Our assumptions are not tested in the laboratory, but always under real-world conditions.

6. We develop digital business

For us, it’s always about developing real businesses, not just nice “projects”. Each venture is based on a viable business model, an outstanding team, and industry-standard tools and methods.
