Startup adVANce: Co-development partnership program with MB Vans Applications -15.01.2017

Startup adVANce Born to grow.

This is not an accelerator nor an incubator, but a co-development partnership program.

This is your opportunity to work with Mercedes-Benz Vans and help you turn your transport idea into reality.

We will support you as a fair partner, granting you up to €500,000 to co-develop your prototype with shared IP rights. We won’t claim any of your company shares and you can stay in your familiar surroundings.

The goals of the Startup adVANce Challenge are:

  • To develop and produce hardware and software prototypes that satisfy the future needs of customers in the field of “Last Mile Transportation of Goods and People”.
  • To create new long-term partnerships with the most innovative startups that will last beyond the challenge.

Because of our fair and transparent practices, the European Commission is endorsing Startup adVANce. The challenge is sponsored by Volker Mornhinweg, Head of Mercedes-Benz Vans.

Application deadline: January 15, 2017!
