We are guided by the pioneering spirit of inventors like Gottlieb Daimler and Carl Benz. Born at the heart of Mercedes-Benz in 2007 as their innovation department, we transformed ourselves in 2020 into 1886Ventures, the innovation platform for building new industry businesses that will set future standards in the industry.
1886Ventures develops sustainable and digital industry innovation powered by next technologies. We discover, validate, and develop innovative new digital business models and transformation services. We unleash the potential of those next technologies such as data analytics, artificial intelligence, the internet of things or fuel cell technology, to build outstanding data-based ventures.
