MobilityXlab’s collaboration program is aimed at startups and emerging companies seeking Proof of Concepts (POCs) and validation projects that may lead to pilots and a commercial contract. Selected startups work with our seven partners: CEVT, Ericsson, Polestar, Veoneer, Volvo Cars, Volvo Group, and Zenseact, global-game changers within the field of future mobility. We believe that together with startups we can co-create solutions that develop into successful companies delivering products and services fit for the next generation.
The program runs for six months, with two “batches” per year. The selected startups go on a journey with MobilityXlab who will facilitate all meetings and checkpoints. From the start of the program, you will get an assigned partner lead, an internal champion responsible for the continuous progress of your collaboration. After six months, a startup can get a six-month extension, or become Alumni and remain a member of MobilityXlab’s community for the future.

We welcome companies from all over the world, and most meetings and checkpoints are conducted online. This is also a no-fee/no equity program. MobilityXlab does not invest in your company. The goal of our program is for a startup to enter a commercial contract with one of our partners. You, as a startup company, keep all of your equity and gain a unique opportunity to work with industry leaders.
