On February 10, it was time: out of hundreds of applicants, 36 startups made it into the preselection for Selection Day. The entrepreneurs battled for the favor of the jury and public in front of 250 invited guests. The 28 winners, who are now allowed to spend 100 days in ARENA2036, are presenting innovations that will have a determining influence on the future of mobility. The entire spectrum of issues was covered – from connectivity to autonomic driving, digital services, and the establishment of Industry 4.0 standards. Keywords like blockchain, artificial intelligence, robotics, and virtual reality quickly made their way from the stage to the audience. The new participants may not have attracted much attention yet, but their successful pitches at the STARTUP-AUTOBAHN clearly highlight their potential.
