STARTUP AUTOBAHN is an innovation platform powered by Silicon Valley based Investor Plug and Play Tech center. It provides an interface between industry-leading corporations and innovative tech companies. At the heart of the semi-annual program is the corporate partner collaboration with startups on an eye-to-eye level to evaluate the fit for both parties, pilot their technology and achieve the ultimate goal – a successful production-ready implementation. Designed to go beyond just startup acceleration, STARTUP AUTOBAHN moderates an ecosystem for collaboration. It drives cultural mindset change as well as sharing of company best practices in a neutral environment to push digitization across corporate structures and value chains. In May 2016 Daimler, Plug and Play Tech Center, the University of Stuttgart and ARENA2036 founded STARTUP AUTOBAHN as an open innovation platform with global reach. Since then, they have teamed up with Anchor Partners DXC Technology, ZF, BASF, Porsche AG, DHL Deutsche Post, Webasto Group, Rolls-Royce Power Systems AG, MothersonGroup, T-Systems, Bosch, and the Ecosystem Partners Murata, The Linde Group, AGC Glass Europe, Wieland, Jardine Matheson, Covéa, BP, Hyundai, TÜV Rheinland, Yanfeng Automotive Interiors,Eberspächer, Poste Italiane, and Faurecia to bring the idea of open innovation to life.
