Startupbootcamp: e&Co. chairman as mentor in the smart transportation & energy programme.
Fast-forward into the digital value economy: Dr. Engelbert Wimmer (Chairman of the e&Co. AG Board of Management) has been chosen as one of the mentors in smart transportation and energy for the worldwide leading start-up accelerator, the Startupbootcamp. The Digital Innovation Hub in Berlin offers support and advice to start-ups working on networked mobility solutions for both passenger and goods transport. As part of the three-month programme starting this August, ten selected teams will be working on revolutionary ideas in what is referred to as the “rainmaking loft”, receiving not only financial support and targeted coaching, but also enjoying valuable access to over 150 industry partners, mentors, and investors including Airbus, Cisco, HERE, Kuehne + Nagel, Mercedes-Benz, and VINCI.
“In a range of customer projects, the e&Co. AG team is the real motor behind digital transformation, pushing full throttle to turn current mobility solutions into integrated, comfortable, customer-focussed services. Not only does Startupbootcamp have its finger on the pulse of the innovations which will determine our mobile future in the coming decades, but it is in a position to take an active role in shaping them. I am looking forward to giving input and enjoying valuable synergies.” (Dr. Engelbert Wimmer)
