In This Episode – How Motivo Explores Alternative Solutions in Tech

Every industry has its unique challenges, but sometimes, the most transformative solutions come from looking at problems through a different lens. In this episode, we speak with Michael Konig and Stephan Schmitz-Justen from Motivo, engineers who believe modern issues require unique and creative solutions.

Part of finding that solution is finding the right people to work with, and that’s what we’re talking about this week. Join us to learn how Motivo connects customers with the tech partners that best suit not only their needs but their goals and values as well.

We discuss some of their unique projects and how thinking outside the box has helped them realize their goals. This includes embracing individuals from potentially unconventional backgrounds as the team shares anecdotes about team members from the racing and video game worlds.

This episode offers a fresh perspective on how engineers can tackle challenges by brainstorming unconventional solutions. It highlights the advantages of tapping into diverse backgrounds and experiences during the engineering and design processes. We also delve deeply into the ways Motivo is pushing the envelope, rethinking the ways cutting-edge technologies are created.
