Beam aims to become the world’s most successful logistics company builder

At € 1,300+ B, the European logistics industry is enormous. Startups are only beginning to scratch the surface of the transformation made possible by applying software to business problems. We are backed by BEUMER Group, a € 1 B revenue, German, family-owned logistics company with a global footprint and access to an extensive network of industrial customers. We are also confidently relying on our excellent network of startup mentors, venture capitalists, and technical experts. Headquartered in Berlin, we are committed to becoming the strongest – and yet humble partner for any founder to build a next-generation logistics company. We have incubated three startups since early 2019. Multiple entrepreneurs in residence are currently validating their business cases at Beam. Each problem validation consists of multiple phases, with the most emphasis on trying to falsify a problem hypothesis. If we aren't able to falsify the problem after at least two dozen expert interviews, we move forward to the solution validation phase, in which we build a business case out of the intended solution. If you manage to get customer interest, we launch a new startup!
