“Share your journey with people” | Daimler X incubator, Project A and startup pitches

Get inspired by GFT! – for the second time, GFT invited guests to its Inspiration Day. This time the event was held on June 29, 2017 at the GFT Campus under the banner of impulse. inspect. ignite. The motto was a call for new, entrepreneurial mindsets and practices in a digitalized world. Inspired by art, culture, and design, genuine experts sketched out their vision of what the future holds. In addition to presentations by Google and Dropbox, one highlight of the event was the introduction of Daimler X with the new CODE_n resident Mercedes Benz LAB 1886 – Daimler Incubator Europe. For several weeks now, Matin Ebrahimchel and his team have been busy here at CODE_n SPACES, leveraging startup techniques in Daimler’s in-house innovation factory with the aim of bringing promising ideas to fruition. Another feature on Inspiration Day was also a special goodie for the startups located on the CODE_n Innovation Campus – the Berlin-based venture capital investor Project A was in town and gave the teams some valuable tips in an exclusive Office Hour. Find out all the fun details and background information on this exciting event – we hope you enjoy the read!
