How We Partner

Borusan Mannesmann seeks to create minimal viable products. With our call for innovation, we are looking to collaborate with universities, faculty members, researchers, start-up companies, private companies, entrepreneurs that are developing solutions in our focus areas. Furthermore, if you have a solution related to the steel pipe industry and need support in building it and/or improving it please fill out the form to submit your idea. The outcome is never certain and the process requires persistence, empowerment and a clear approach. Ours is all about testing and validating our assumptions before we build. This ensures innovations are desirable, feasible and viable and we deliver impactful solutions. Once ready to scale, we can negotiate and either integrate your solution to our business or evaluate co-investment opportunities.
