The development of global innovation ecosystems that promote transnational technology transfer and revolutionize value chains in the long term has inspired and accompanied Friederike Hettinger throughout her professional life to date. Finding ways to foster creativity and entrepreneurship is her daily work as managing director of TUM International GmbH.
Friederike Hettinger holds a Master’s degree in International Management from Copenhagen Business School. She has studied, lived and worked abroad. Previously, she worked as a Strategic Alliance Manager at a global technology company based in Boston, where she was responsible for strategic alliances with management consultancies (McKinsey, BCG) and global systems integrators (e.g. Accenture, EY) across Europe. The conceptualization of joint digitization roadmaps and resulting business plans were part of her area of responsibility, in addition to their implementation in the form of go-to-market plans. Here, too, their knowledge and wealth of experience from theoretical and practically applied business models around the topic of “open innovation” and “knowledge and technology transfer” were helpful companions.
