Founded just six years ago, the accelerator has rapidly positioned itself at the forefront of the mobility innovation sector. MobilityXlab's current portfolio hosts 94 promising startups, which have been co-creating solutions with six industry powerhouses: CEVT, Ericsson, Volvo Group, Polestar, Magna, and Zenseact. 

The result of these relationships is an impressive 100 validation projects, showcasing the potential of merging established industry knowledge with the agility and innovation of startups. The hundredth collaboration belongs to the Canadian startup LatenceTech, which along with two partners at MobilityXlab, is developing a solution to detect and predict network latency and how it affects connected vehicles.

In addition to these PoCs, MobilityXlab has recorded 19 accelerations, or commercial contracts between startups and industry partners. The accelerations represent real-world applications and solutions, signaling a prosperous relationship between startups and their larger counterparts.

To Katarina Brud, director at MobilityXlab, these milestones underscore the potential of structured collaboration. “By connecting startups and corporates and offering a framework for their relationship, both sides can access a wealth of resources and expertise. For our partners, this means tapping into fresh perspectives, ensuring they stay in the forefront of tech development in an ever-evolving market landscape,” she explains. 

MobilityXlab's achievements serve as a reminder of the power of collaboration in driving industry transformation and ensuring a safer, sustainable, and more accessible mobility landscape for all.
