Henkelx is supporting AccelerateHER, addressing the underrepresentation of women in technology.

Accelerating digitalization is one of Henkel’s strategic priorities until 2020 and beyond. The company aims to successfully grow its business while strengthening relationships with its customers and consumers, optimizing its processes, and advancing its digital transformation.

For this reason, the company has launched a new operating unit called Henkelx: It aims to bring together expertise from across all business units and internal experts with the insights and creativity of external partners. The unit is focusing on driving innovation and exploring disruptive new business models. It becomes the destination and platform for change.

Henkelx is uniting and accelerating the company´s entrepreneurial energy to drive its digital transformation. This will involve a significant cultural change, and will foster digital upskilling across the entire Henkel organization. Henkelx is based on three key pillars:

  1. Ecosystem: an open innovation platform integrating a strong network of partners and experts from startups and entrepreneurs, to retailers and industry peers, and universities – supported by a group of mentors,
  2. Experience: interactive events and formats fostering collaboration and innovation,
  3. Experimentation and Acceleration: new ways of working in an agile environment.

Henkelx brings together a network of mentors, collaborators, and industry partners to work together on industry-wide challenges. It is the platform for new collaborative formats and live events like “Henkelx Show & Tell” or “Fireside Chats”, where participants discuss trends, challenges and developments related to technology – and have the opportunity to set up new partnerships.. The Henkelx Mentorship Club brings together leading entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, and industry experts to support Henkel´s teams by sharing expertise and experience from outside the company.

This unique set-up will foster a culture of collaboration while empowering Henkel to further leverage industry expertise. Furthermore, it aims to establish Henkel as a strong partner for collaborative commerce by working with business partners and industry peers to tackle shared challenges and develop customer-centric solutions together.
