Networking across borders

Networking is a fundamental contributor to success

Contacts are very important nowadays. The right contacts are often the key to a successful business. Finding those useful contacts is called „networking“. With growing competition in all industries it is essential to build up contacts throughout different branches. The more contacts the better. Often people or companies like to work with other people who they have already met, rather than relying on strangers.

Contacts to all different types of branches can be useful, even though they may not seem like it in the beginning, says Rieta de Soet, CEO of Global Management Consultants AG in Zug, Switzerland.

Networking seems to become more popular, there are events just for the purpose of connecting with potential business partners and also websites with the same purpose. „Easy networking“ is designed for people and companies in certain branches, so that they connect with the right people, which is a win/win-situation for both sides.

Rieta de Soet speaks from experience. She has successfully managed GMC Business Centers for more than 25 years and met a lot of people and companies along the way. A lot of companies started at GMC AG and kept growing from there, but the contacts still remain after they expanded their company outside of the Business Center. This is also a good opportunity for companies that decide to work with Global Management Consultants AG, because GMC AG can easily connect it`s clients with their contacts, adds Rieta de Soet.


GMC AG mit Hauptsitz in Zug/Schweiz, ist mit zahlreichen Business Centern international in Amerika, Australien, Asien und Europa vertreten. In seinen Business Centern stehen Betriebswirte, Steuerberater, Marketing- und Unternehmensberater den Kunden zur Verfügung, die seit über 20 Jahren in den Bereichen Business Center, Firmengründung und Managementberatung tätig sind.

redBUX – still available at BRIC INVEST until April 15 with a 35% Bonus PLUS welcome premium

redBUX is the hit ICO of the year – over 2.4 billion tokens have been sold to investors worldwide within the first week. Investors can still acquire tokens with a subscription bonus of 35% PLUS a welcome premium at BRIC INVEST until April 15, 2018

redBUX - still available at BRIC INVEST until April 15 with a 35% Bonus PLUS welcome premium

Berlin / Prague, April 9th, 2018 – On March 22, the official pre-sale of the redBUX token began, which was already considered by investors, investment advisers and the trade press as the ICO (Initial Coin Offering) of the year. Offered were tokens for the new crypto-currency redBUX, which is used by the global adult industry in the virtual reality environment vrXcity as an exclusive form of payment from leading international adult industry players such as iwantempire or WickedPictures and will soon be accepted in more than 6,000 adult media outlands globally. The pre-sale has been a great success so far – more than 2.4 billion of the 3.9 billion tokens that are available in the pre-sale phase have already been sold.

Investors who have not yet subscribed to redBUX now have a last chance until 15 April, to secure the last available contingents of redBUX tokens – at the Prague investment house BRIC INVEST investors can still sign redBUX with a subscription bonus of 35% plus an attractive welcome premium!

The potential of the redBUX is considered to be particularly promising by the trade press because th redBUX will be the sole means of payment in the virtual reality world of vrXcity, which has been embraced by the world’s leading erotic providers. Virtual Reality will revolutionize the global erotic industry because it allows direct interaction with photorealistic images of the industry“s stars – with Virtual Reality, fans can interact with three-dimensional avatars of their erotic stars just as they please.

The international porn industry relies on redBUX and vrXcity, because the virtual reality platform of the Berlin-based Memento GmbH sets the industry standard in artificial realities: „As an innovator in disruptive technology in recent years, many VR concepts have been proposed to me and vrXcity shows nothing but the next big thing. I’m both amazed and amazed by the quality of their technology and the experience it brings to consumers, and VRXcity will be a watershed moment for both consumers and artists. iwantempire is proud to cooperate with such a truly amazing technology and product, „says Jay Phillips, co-founder of industry giant iWantEmpire.

Because redBUX will be the only means of payment within the artificial worlds of the vrXcity platform, high demand and huge transaction volumes are preprogrammed with redBUX: the millions of consumers worldwide who use the virtual reality offerings of the industry giants will have to pay with redBUX. With regard to the billions in sales that these companies will make with virtual reality, redBUX will certainly become one of the most important means of payment in the gigantic billion dollar market „virtual porn“.

Investors can now secure their holdings of redBUX tokens at BRIC INVEST until April 15, 2018, and secure a subscription premium of 35% PLUS a welcome premium, before the redBUX trades normally after April 22.

For more safety while rescuing

WELP Armouring presents the first armoured ambulance and Toyota Land Cruiser police vehicle at the Enforce Tac in Nuremberg

For more safety while rescuing

Together with the Wietmarscher Ambulanz und Sonderfahrzeug GmbH (WAS) and Senger Rent, WELP Armouring has developed and built an armoured Mercedes Benz Sprinter F-MSC ambulance for more safety when operating in crisis areas.

At the Enforce Tac, the international trade fair for safety and security management for government agencies in Nuremberg, the specialist for special protection vehicles presented the fully armoured Sprinter to trade visitors. In addition, the authorities were able to experience the protected police vehicle F2-TLC900 based on Toyota Land Cruiser 200 and armoured by WELP Armouring – with success!

„We are proud that we have developed two of the best-protected emergency vehicles in their class with the ambulance and the police vehicle,“ explains Ronald Gerschewski, Managing Director of the WELP GROUP based in Georgsmarienhütte. „Many good conversations and inquiries have confirmed that the two newly developed models complement our range of first-class protected vehicles exceptionally.“

With 242 exhibitors and over 3,500 visitors, Enforce Tac has once again demonstrated, in its seventh edition, that it“s one of the world’s premier international trade fairs for law enforcement and government agency equipment providers. „The Enforce Tac is therefore an ideal platform for us to present our new developments to an interested, professional audience and to discuss the latest technical developments, techniques and technologies concerning security with police and authorities, even at the highest technical level.“ reports Ronald Gerschewski.

Like all special-purpose WELP Armouring vehicles, the first armoured Mercedes-Benz Sprinter F-MSC ambulance cannot be distinguished from a normal Sprinter from the outside. But under the Mercedes Benz outer skin there is an armour according to VPAM VR6 / BRV2009, which protects the fully equipped F-MSC ambulance with the know-how of WAS in an unprecedented way. The armoured vehicle is protected in the patient room with a steel cage of protection class VR6. In the ceiling, floor and side walls are five-millimetre-thick steel plates incorporated, which withstand, for example, the bullet of an assault rifle (AK 47).

So far WELP Armouring has armoured its F-MSC for use as a passenger transporter, value transporter or troop carrier. The ambulance is now another available option. Additionally, the list of individual configuration options is unchanged long. Depending on the intended use, the vehicle can be set up to the highest protection class (VR9). The protection concept is based on WELP Armouring typical modular design and is completely executed as bolt-armour. Vehicles such as the F-MSC ambulance do not attract undue attention, as the protective armour is not visible under the normal outer skin. On the Enforce Tac, the transporter with these characteristics quickly became an eye-catcher.

Another was just a few meters away: The special-purpose protected police vehicle F2-TLC900 based on Toyota Land Cruiser 200 has passed all the bombardment and fire tests according to VPAM & STANAG 4569 in time for the fair. Due to the hot-formed wheel arch shell, the F2-TLC900 can withstand a six-kilogram landmine on the front wheel (level 2a), as well as hand grenades and a side impact. It fulfils all standards of protection class VR9. Governments, embassies, aid agencies and special task forces around the world already prefer the F2 TLC, which is available in the VR7 and VR9 protection classes. Again, the special-purpose protection vehicle is not to be distinguished from the production model, making the armoured Toyota Land Cruiser interesting as a police vehicle in vulnerable areas.

WELP Armouring develops and produces customized and armoured vehicles to meet the highest automotive productions
standards and cover the highest ballistic levels.
Our certified armouring portfolio entails SUVs, pick-ups, transporter vans and commercial vehicles for every conceivable mission throughout the world.
Customized one-of-a-kind vehicles or exclusive limited
editions from German vehicle manufacturers – whatever the requirements are, our armouring solutions are unfailingly
produced using certified, high-quality ballistic materials that
are monitored by an efficient quality management system.

Expert additions to the team

HR news – two biologists have been providing support for project management at BioRegio STERN Management GmbH since February

Expert additions to the team

Biologists Nina Zabel and Jana Fesseler (from left) provide support for BioRegio STERN (Source: private)

(Stuttgart) – Two more biologists – Jana Fesseler and Nina Zabel – are now providing support for project management at BioRegio STERN Management GmbH. The company, which promotes economic development in the life sciences industry, recently secured numerous new projects, which has resulted in it having to increase its workforce significantly. Among other things, BioRegio STERN Management GmbH has taken on the role of coordinator in the joint APRONA project and is the German lead partner for the Interreg project Codex4SMEs.

A „flexible robot-based platform for automated production of nanoparticles“ is to be developed within the next two and a half years. A transnational network is also being set up to drive forward the development of companion diagnostics along the entire value chain of small and medium-sized enterprises (SME). However, APRONA and Codex4SMEs are just two of the projects that BioRegio STERN Management GmbH has recently procured. „To successfully implement both these and other national and international projects, it was urgently necessary to expand the workforce,“ explains Managing Director Dr. Klaus Eichenberg. „I’m delighted we’ve been able to expand our team so expertly with Jana Fesseler and Nina Zabel. But if things continue to develop in this way, we’ll probably have to allow for even more hires.“

Fesseler and Zabel, both biologists (M.Sc.), started their work in Stuttgart in February 2018.
Jana Fesseler (27) completed a degree in biosciences at the University of Kaiserslautern, which she rounded off with a bachelor thesis on bioprocess engineering and technology. For her subsequent master’s degree in biotechnology, she transferred to the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), where she focused on the manufacture of bio-based products from renewable raw materials for the industrial biotechnology sector.
Nina Zabel (27) studied biology at the University of Hohenheim. During a practical semester at Greiner Bio-One GmbH, she gained an insight into the development process for products destined for specific applications in medical, pharmaceutical and biotechnological research and wrote her thesis in Hohenheim at the Institute for Membrane Physiology in collaboration with Greiner Bio-One GmbH. During this, she characterised magnetic nanoparticles and investigated their influence on cellular parameters.

About BioRegio STERN Management GmbH:
BioRegio STERN Management GmbH promotes economic development in the life sciences industry, helping to strengthen the region as a business location by supporting innovations and start-up companies in the public interest. It is the main point of contact for company founders and entrepreneurs in the Stuttgart and Neckar-Alb regions, including the cities of Tübingen and Reutlingen.
