Karim Tarraf takes over the lead of the chapter “Startup Competencies for Public Procurement” in the advisory board “Junge Digitale Wirtschaft ” of the Federal Ministry of Economy and Climate

The advisory board “Junge Digitale Wirtschaft “(Young Digital Economy)  provides first-hand advice to the German Federal Minister for Economic Affairs and Climate Protection on current issues of digital transformation. The focus is on the development and potential of the young digital economy and new digital technologies in Germany. Because of the dynamics of the digital economy, the advisory board is designed to be flexible and open. The goal: a direct and practice-oriented dialogue between the young German digital and startup scene and politics.

The board, which renews itself yearly, is staffed with founders, business leaders, investors and digital associations. Hawa Dawa is proud to announce that Robert Habeck appointed CEO and co-founder Karim Tarraf to the advisory board as one of a total of 29 members.

The current advisory board will focus on key areas:

  • Accelerating sustainable transformation
  • Establishing digital sovereignty
  • Securing Germany as a high-tech location
  • Reducing bureaucracy/level playing field

To this end, the board has organised itself into eight chapters. Karim Tarraf has taken over the lead of the “Startup Competencies for Public Procurement” chapter. Together with Anne Kjær Bathel, he will work on finding holistic ways for startups to be involved in larger public sector contracts.

The focus will be on digital startups as well as social startups. Because even though the business models are different, both struggle with the same challenges. On the one hand, Karim Tarraf can contribute his first-hand experience of Hawa Dawa as a startup whose solution is primarily aimed at public clients. On the other hand, he is intensively networked in the German startup ecosystem. He invites startups to send their input on this topic to him or Anna Kjær Bathel via LinkedIn. Lastly, Karim Tarraf also has insights into how similar issues are dealt with abroad.
