New space, new face

We’ve already told you about the hybris labs Innovation Space at NY82. It gives us the chance to exclusively present our prototypes to customers and partners in an environment less hectic than at the events we frequently attend. And it’s also better than keeping them in storage somewhere. The prototypes, not the partners and customers. But to do this we need some help.

Let me introduce Andreas Kopp to you who has been supporting the labs team since September 1st. He will manage the hybris labs Innovation Space and give demonstrations of our prototypes to partners, customers and also new employees. Basically to anybody who is interested. So, if you want to get in touch just send him an email to andreas.kopp@hybris.com.

Andreas Kopp

Being an active member of the fablab Munich and a regular exhibitor at Maker Faires, Andreas will add some new spirit to the labs team, connecting hybris labs to the maker community. Building connected objects is one of Andreas’s great interests, but he says himself that he is very curious to learn more about e-commerce and the hybris world.

We’re glad to have you with us Andreas, welcome to the team!
