Mercedes-Benz Idea Accelerator Program

As we speak a huge shift in transportation is taking place. More than ever, car brands like Mercedes-Benz are being challenged by new trends. Trends like on-demand mobility, electric and driverless vehicles just to name a few. Many of these innovations come from outside of the traditional automobile industry. Companies like Uber and Car2Go are leading the way.

In September 2016 the “Mercedes-Benz Idea Accelerator’ program will take place in Berlin. 15 Mercedes-Benz innovators will come together to discuss new concepts and ideas for the sales, service and financing of Mercedes-Benz cars in the future.
Do you have an innovative idea about the future of mobility? Want to pitch it to Mercedes-Benz? - Well you’re in luck! They’ve partnered with jovoto to run a think tank to develop innovative concepts for the future of sales, services, and finance in the mobility industry. Take part in DESTINATION TOMORROW and be in with a chance to win cash rewards from the €12 000 prize pool AND get flown into Berlin for the Mercedes Benz Accelerator to present your idea to top decision makers at the company. Your idea could get licensed and realised by one of the world’s leading premium car brands! 
To join the “Destination Tomorrow” Crowdstorm with Mercedes-Benz (or any other projects running on jovoto) you just need to sign up to jovoto, this is a simple process and of course, it’s free.

During the sign-up process, make sure to include a link to your portfolio so jovoto can review your previous work, skills, and creative level. That way they know what projects will suit you best.

Deadline for submissions is 18th of August.
