Co-pace GmbH powered by Continental AG

The future of mobility in the “protected space”

Automotive industry

Directly at the opening of wavespace Berlin Kreuzberg, co-pace, the startup organization of Continental, started its 4-month incubation program mvp.Builder. Within this program co-pace faced the challenges of growing competition from tech start-ups, decreasing margins and the changing role of mobility. During the time in wavespace several innovation products and pilot programs could be realized and new agile ways of thinking implemented. For this, wavespace offered the ideal framework to push the products in the service and software area.

Impact in figures

3 innovation products/softwares validated and implemented with customers

Sustainable training of agile, customer-centered thinking and working methods in 3 teams

First pilot programs with customers to generate new sales channels within 4 months
