Deutsche Bahn have opened an innovation lab in Jannowitzbrücke, Berlin. DB’s Mindbox lab is an accelerator that works with innovative start-ups to provide solutions to the biggest problems that the railway industry is facing today.
DB’s new lab provides a venue for collaboration and support for start-ups that are addressing engineering problems and service improvements in the railway industry. The lab offers funding, a coworking space, coaching, and mentoring for those start-ups that successfully apply.
The Mindbox hosts ‘challenges’ where start-ups are invited to address well-defined problems that do not yet have a suitable solution. The Mindbox also hosts regular hackathons during which they publish open data, and individuals and teams work together to develope data-driven applications.
