When it comes to future-oriented technologies and business models, [email protected], the Technology & Venture division of Daimler, is the right investment partner.

In addition to the classic product areas of cars, vans, buses and trucks, the focus is also on service offerings, new mobility solutions and services as well as investments in a broad portfolio of top venture capital funds worldwide.

Startups and innovative technologies wanted

In addition to venture investment activities, the team is responsible for technology and startup acquisitions in the Daimler Group.

Technology & Venture is constantly on the lookout for innovative companies and technologies - global and “stage agnostic”, which means that it does not matter whether the startup is still in an early phase or whether it is already an established technology company acts.

Investment priorities.

The focus of Daimler Technology & Venture is on startups or established companies with the following priorities:

By networking our vehicles, we not only give our customers access to their cars, we also lay the foundation for new service offerings and services.
Autonomous driving is redefining the role of the automobile. Not only will it increase safety and comfort while driving. It gives us back the time that we were previously occupied with driving and that we can then use for other things.
Shared & Services
Own, share or rent - the mobility of the future offers more flexibility. From car2go to myTaxi to the moovel mobility platform, we already offer our customers a wide range of shared mobility services. And we are continuously developing this offer.
It is certain that the future of mobility will be electric. In addition to the electrification of combustion engines, for example via plug-in hybrids, we want to bring a large number of battery-electric vehicles onto the market, from smart to truck.
Industry 4.0
The potential of the digital revolution is great: When humans, machines and industrial processes are intelligently networked, individual, high-quality products can be created quickly. Production and manufacturing costs can be made competitive. The digitization of the value chain opens up a multitude of new possibilities and opportunities.
Customer experience
Every customer is unique, has specific needs and uses different communication channels. A good customer experience requires that you meet the customer in a very individual way. All sales and service activities as well as financial services are therefore coordinated with one another - and seamlessly between online and offline.
FinTech / InsureTech
Finance, lease, insure and stay mobile even without your own vehicle. Daimler offers a variety of financial services. Making these more flexible means more freedom for our customers.

This is us

Our goal is the further development and value creation of our investments. We not only support with fresh capital, but also bring in the expertise and strength of the Daimler Group. To do this, we network your startup with our experts and work with you. Of course, we also provide our global strategic network to support the development of our portfolio companies.

Diverse portfolio.

The portfolio of Daimler Technology & Venture includes a large number of innovative startups from a wide variety of segments. A selection:
