The Stuttgart Connectory opened its doors to the world of the Internet of Things (IoT) in March 2018 The idea of building and creating a space for the IoT community to meet and collaborate and provide them with the best resources for their success was developed between both Bosch and mm1. Collaboration not only defined the Stuttgart Connectory’s origin, it went beyond that and became one of its day-to-day guiding principles.
The Stuttgart Connectory is an Internet of Things (IoT) co-creation space in the heart of Stuttgart, Germany, operated by Robert Bosch GmbH. Located in the Wihelmsbau, near Stuttgart Stadtmitte, the Connectory brings together startups, corporate and university partners, and Bosch project teams focused on digital innovation in supply chain, logistics and data driven technologies.
The Connectory is a physical place working towards a connected future in a cross-domain, cross-functional and active IoT ecosystem. It operates in a co-creation model that fosters collaboration, networking and problem solving among its partners. Collaboration focuses on digitization, incubation and educational experience.
Each Connectory location is part of a global network with a goal to empower opportunities for its partners working on new IoT products, business models and services as the world evolves through a digital transformation. Strong partnerships and collaboration are key to being successful in the Internet of Things.

The name Connectory is a combination of the words “connection” and “factory,” two central elements of Bosch’s vision for the future. It is a space where connections happen – among devices, people and ecosystems – as the world evolves through a digital transformation. The Connectory becomes a physical space, designed to connect and co-create around the topic of IoT for startups, universities or other corporations.
The Stuttgart Connectory team is made up of dedicated people with a wide range of expertise and different backgrounds. What all of them have in common is the motivation to support our members to make their IoT development a success.
