Merc in­vites ideas

The Witness - Wheels - - MOTORING -

MERCEDES-BENZ South Africa (MBSA), the LaunchLab and Startup Au­to­bahn of­fer stu­dents, pro­fes­sion­als and start-ups a chance to be­come a Daim­ler sup­plier.

The Mercedes-Benz South Africa In­no­va­tion Chal­lenge will tar­get two streams. It will ask in­ter­ested stu­dents and pro­fes­sion­als (as a first stream) and ex­ist­ing start-ups (as a sec­ond stream) to pitch their in­no­va­tive ideas around a set of chal­lenges, tai­lor­made to ad­vanced man­u­fac­tur­ing and bench­mark sales and mar­ket­ing top­ics, as iden­ti­fied by Mercedes-Benz South Africa.

The suc­cess­ful par­tic­i­pants from the first stream can win in­cu­ba­tion sup­port for their ideas.

Start-up com­pa­nies in the sec­ond stream can win their share of R600 000 for sup­plier devel­op­ment, in­ter­na­tional ex­po­sure and the pos­si­bil­ity to be­come a Daim­ler sup­plier.

In­ter­ested par­ties must reg­is­ter for an in­for­ma­tion sem­i­nar, to be hosted on Au­gust 31 from 11 am.

The link to the in­for­ma­tion sem­i­nar will also be avail­able on­no­va­tionChal­lenge.
