Do you want to Pioneer Future Mobility? Then apply now for MobilityXlab, a 6-month innovation program that offers startups and emerging companies with pioneering ideas within mobility and connectivity the opportunity to accelerate with their seven founding companies: CEVT, Ericsson, Polestar, Venoeer, Volvo Cars, Volvo Group and Zenseact.
MobilityXlab offers a 6-month innovation program, with two “batches” per year. The selected startups go on a journey with MobilityXlab who will facilitate all meetings and checkpoints. From the start of the program, you will get an assigned partner lead, an internal champion responsible for the continuous progress of your collaboration.
The program is divided into three phases. First is the Discover phase, which will take about one month. This is where you as a startup together with the partner company set the scope, and agree on NDA and budget for the POC. The second phase is the Validation phase, during which you conduct the POC to demonstrate the feasibility of your solution.
Depending on the scope, the second phase can take several months. The longer-term goal for their program is for startups to accelerate together with their partner companies. After 6 months, a startup can get a 6-month extension, or become Alumni and remain a member of MobilityXlab’s community for the future.
- Being a portfolio startup in MobilityXlab’s community brings many benefits. They will give you:
- The opportunity to collaborate with our partners, seven leading industry companies, for six months with the goal of validating your solution in proof-of-concepts/pilots, and a potential commercial partnership

What they are looking for?
- They are looking for startups with innovations within the following areas:
