Funding for international start-ups on future mobility (applications before 31.10.2018)


Mobility of people and transportation of goods belong to the biggest challenges of the world, especially with a growing population and an increasing income. Volkswagen is known as a traditional German automotive manufacturer. For example there are just about 63.000 licensed electric cars by the end of this year. For away from reaching the former target of the federal German government of 1.000.000 cars by the year 2020.

But how to speed up?

Volkswagen started the program “Future Mobility Incubator” in cooperation with the city of Dresden to search for international start-ups to design and develop the mobility of the future. With this activity Volkswagen as well tries to change strategically from a production company to a service provider that offers mobility solutions.

The fourth group will start in March 2019. The start-ups again will benefit from a funding of 15.000 EUR, a huge source of experiences and infrastructure and the support of mentors. This is a chance to develop new ideas and implement market driven solutions in the famous production site “Gläserne Manufaktur”.

Here as well starts the center of electromobility of Europe next year. Application material and information are available here:

Pitches are planned in Riga, London, Tel Aviv, Prague and Hanover.

Registration of start ups are always possible at the portal:
