Osnabrück, 23.09.2016 State Premier Stephan Weil and Minister for the Interior and Sport Boris Pistorius are accompanied during their weeklong trip (02-08 October) to Mexico and the United States by more than 50 participants from business, science and politics. In Mexico the delegation will be concentrating on the political and economic situation while in the USA, during a visit to Silicon Valley, the focus will be on digital business models and the promotion of start-ups. This trip presents an optimal opportunity for SALT AND PEPPER Software Solutions to build up contacts with potential partners in the fields of individual industrial software, virtual reality and also the industrial Internet of Things.
Timo Seggelmann, Managing Partner at SALT AND PEPPER Software GmbH & Co. KG., will be the company’s delegate on the trip and is looking forward immensely to the journey. “The trip with the delegation will give us valuable insight into two completely different countries and their systems. In Silicon Valley we will be experiencing, up close and personal, the founder spirit and the visionary thinking of those who make it happen. For us, as a digital company still in its youth, that’s got to be a hugely stimulating environment. With our individual software solutions and our research work in the field of virtual reality, we are up there with the latest trends. I’m sure we are going to be establishing enduring contacts.”
The program in Mexico includes a visit to Volkswagen in Mexico City, a reception by the German Ambassador to mark “German Year in Mexico” as well as talks with the Governor of the State of Puebla. In Silicon Valley in the USA the delegation’s agenda includes visits to Tesla Motors and Facebook and a trip to Stanford University including a “round table” discussion with students and scientists about the comparative secondary school systems and options for start-ups.
Independent of the delegation and Timo Seggelmann, three more colleagues from SALT AND PEPPER Software Solutions are travelling ahead to Silicon Valley to prepare the ground. This includes establishing initial contacts at events such as Tech Crunch in San Francisco, SVIEF 2016 in Santa Clara as well as Oculus Connect in San Jose. They will be building on these after the delegation’s visit ends. On October 9th Mr. Seggelmann and his team are inviting VR enthusiasts to a BBQ where potential joint ventures can be discussed.
