Class #5 of Volkswagen's incubator programme

Five start-ups make a virtual start to the next round

Volkswagen's start-up program entered its fifth round today in Dresden. Five startups will work together with the Transparent Factory and the Volkswagen Group for six months. The launch of a new class of the “Future Mobility Incubator” took place virtually for the first time. The dates for the presentation in the Transparent Factory are currently being planned. The founders now have until the end of November to push their concepts forward with the support of specialist departments in Wolfsburg, Berlin and Dresden.

The Future Mobility Incubator is an important project for Volkswagen to anchor fresh and innovative ideas in the Group. It enables us to promote innovation even in challenging global times. Reinhard de Vries, Managing Director of Technology and Logistics at Volkswagen Sachsen.

And these are the startups of Class #5 and their concepts:

The successful model Future Mobility Incubator will once again focus the attention of founders and investors on the high-tech location Dresden. The concepts of the new class sound promising and will make mobility and cities smarter. This is exactly where we want to go. We will continue to work on locating successful projects in Dresden as well. Dr. Robert Franke, Head of the Office of Economic Development
