Merc invites ideas
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 on mb4.me/MBSAInnovationChallenge.
