Porsche  'Mobility for a Better World'

Sports car manufacturer, Porsche is offering €20,000 to international start-ups, students and developers in return for fresh ideas and technology for the sustainable future of mobility.

Porsche, together with its partners, has launched 'Mobility for a Better World', an ideas competition that will explore what a sustainable future could look like. The competition invites creative ideas and solutions, regardless of their degree of maturity, to be submitted in in the four categories of ‘People’, ‘Wheels’, ‘Cities’ and ‘Trust’ via an application form on Porsche's technology blog: www.medium.com/next-level-german-engineering.

The prizes for the four winners include 5,000 euros per category, a comprehensive educational package focusing on artificial intelligence (AI) and blockchain, as well as specific support from the Porsche Digital Lab and the Berlin Accelerator APX.

According to Oliver Blume, CEO of Porsche AG, "We at Porsche are actively shaping the future of the sports car. This means that we combine our traditions and the company's values with innovative technology and new products in a sustainable manner. Our goal is to be the most sustainable sports car manufacturer in the premium segment and to decisively shape sporting mobility for the environment, people and their living spaces. We are thinking above all of future generations."

The projects submitted will be evaluated by a jury of experts. This consists of Daniela Rathe (Head of Policy and External Relations at Porsche), Anja Hendel (Head of the Porsche Digital Lab), Thomas Bachem (Founder & Chancellor of CODE University of Applied Sciences), Robert Martin (Porsche Digital / APX), Franz W. Rother (Editor-in-Chief EDISON) and Patrick Bungard (Director Center for Advanced Sustainable Management at Cologne Business School and Managing Director M3TRIX).

Participants aged 18 and over can apply, either as a team or as an individual and the ideas competition is being pitched internationally. The deadline for submitting ideas is 30 August 2019. The winners will be announced during Porsche Sustainability Week in October this year.
