The future of mobility is raising considerable challenges for the entire world. Tasks currently carried out by top-range vehicles will be delegated to intelligent mobility concepts tomorrow.

At the conference, Mercedes-Benz will be represented across two entire storeys and engage in a lively exchange with its technologically adept target group and international tech experts.

It will provide a platform for new perspectives, discussions and digital experiences to make a world of connected mobility become reality.


The Web Summit PITCH 2017 powered by Mercedes-Benz.

Pitches belong to Web Summit like the star belongs to Mercedes-Benz. This is why the latter is not only providing jury members for this year’s PITCH battle but also the main prize, which will be awarded to the lucky winners on 9 November at the Web Summit conference in Lisbon: EUR 50,000 and a place on a mentoring programme at Daimler AG.

Go in new directions with the Startup Intelligence Center.

The Startup Intelligence Center (SIC) was initiated by Daimler Financial Services (DFS) in order to establish long-term partnerships with start-ups and accelerate the integration of innovative technologies. It furthermore allows radical innovations and the digitalization of core business to be driven forward. In exchange the SIC offers start-ups the chance to validate their products in the areas of car financing, leasing, insurance and mobility services by means of joint pilot projects. Start-ups in fintech and other areas can thus expand the reach of their innovative products to new markets with the help of this partnership. Join forces with us to refine the DFS business model and help DFS customers tackle the challenges they face!
