MTH UNBOXING: nxt­Ba­se technologies

Many pro­ces­ses are beco­ming incre­asing­ly com­plex. In order to be able to car­ry them out as pro­duc­tively and flaw­less­ly as pos­si­ble, inno­va­ti­ve tech­ni­cal solu­ti­ons are nee­ded - like tho­se of the Pots­dam-based start­up nxt­Ba­se tech­no­lo­gies. With their hard­ware and soft­ware offe­ring, exten­si­ve work pro­ces­ses can be easi­ly digi­ti­zed.
In the Decem­ber issue of MTH Unboxing, Jörg Jonas-Kops explains why he foun­ded nxt­Ba­se tech­no­lo­gies and what his mis­si­on is with the company.

MTH Acce­le­ra­tor: What did you do befo­re nxt­Ba­se tech­no­lo­gies?
Jörg Jonas-Kops: For many years I work­ed as a real estate con­sul­tant. Then, for almost 20 years, I work­ed as a SAP manage­ment con­sul­tant, a key account mana­ger, an CSO and CEO at Best­Val (PropTech). I left in 2012, and foun­ded Kops&Konsorten UG in 2013, which we trans­for­med into nxt­Ba­se tech­no­lo­gies GmbH in 2016.

MTH Acce­le­ra­tor: What are you doing now, apart from nxt­Ba­se tech­no­lo­gies?
Jörg Jonas-Kops: I am a fami­ly man, and I love Ber­lin and the Bran­den­burg area. I cook quite well, am inte­res­ted in HiFi (tubes and horns), and pas­sio­na­te­ly enjoy play­ing Backgammon.

MTH Acce­le­ra­tor: What ist nxt­Ba­se tech­no­lo­gies?
Jörg Jonas-Kops: nxt­Ba­se offers a plat­form for Smart & Pre­dic­ti­ve Main­ten­an­ce, as well as a paten­ted and uni­que bund­le of hard­ware and soft­ware, which makes Aug­men­ted Rea­li­ty pos­si­ble ever­y­whe­re, even wit­hout internet.

MTH Acce­le­ra­tor: Why nxt­Ba­se tech­no­lo­gies?
Jörg Jonas-Kops: After working as an employee for a long time – in my last job I had to com­mu­te to work by train to Switz­er­land – I rea­ched my limit in 2013. I was tired of arri­ving at the office in a bad mood and coming home in an even worse mood. I wan­ted to be my own boss again

MTH Acce­le­ra­tor: Why the MTH Acce­le­ra­tor?
Jörg Jonas-Kops: In 2018 we moved to the Gui­do Seber House – right at the ent­rance to the Babels­berg Film Stu­dio – and con­se­quent­ly, we are deep­ly inte­gra­ted and roo­ted within the eco­sys­tem here. Alt­hough we have offices in Ber­lin and Sri Lan­ka – nxt­Ba­se Chi­na is coming soon – our solu­ti­on is and remains “Made in Babelsberg.”

MTH Acce­le­ra­tor: What is your mis­si­on?
Jörg Jonas-Kops: We want to beco­me the lea­ding end-to-end solu­ti­on for inspec­tion, main­ten­an­ce, repair, and ser­vicing through our voice-dri­ven Smart­Glas­ses appli­ca­ti­ons, as well as our WIOT­TA plat­form (Warehousing, Inter­net of Things, Trans­por­ta­ti­on, Mobi­li­ty, Sup­p­ly Chain Manage­ment, Pre­dic­ti­ve Ana­ly­tics, Arti­fi­ci­al Intel­li­gence [AI], Vir­tu­al Rea­li­ty [VR], Aug­men­ted Rea­li­ty [AR]).
