Friederike Hettinger

(Managing Director)

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.
