2.TESTING YOUR SOLUTION IN CONTINENTAL APPLICATIONS
3.EYE-TO-EYE PARTNERSHIP EVERY STEP OF THE WAY
If you’re a mature startup with proven technology working in one of our areas of interest, we would love to hear from you.
We typically partner with startups that have secured Series A funding, and many of them have already received Series B or C. At this time, we do not work with very early startups.
We are looking for startups that are ready to form a PoC specific to Continental. Our ultimate goal is to bring your solution to the Continental product roadmap.
We first help you create a PoC specific to Continental, validating the fit of your technology in our applications. Startups that succeed in partnership with co-pace typically move from PoC to a proven technology within a year and a half. Many of the startups become partners of Continental. As your trusted partners, we at co-pace help navigate your relationship with Continental even once your technology is in use.
The co-creation process with us varies depending on the complexity of the topic but we have made it structured - we know how long that journey takes and what it takes to make it smooth. Below is a map to give you a sense of the co-creation process.
If you’re a thought leader or member of the press working deeply in one of our areas of interest, we would love to hear from you.
We value our network of thought leaders. The purpose of the co-pace ecosystem is to nurture new concepts and partnerships, exchange insights, connect the dots, and build the future of mobility and beyond. Our collaborations range in format, from co-hosted events to introductions to internal leaders at Continental.
If you’re a thought leader working in one of our areas of interest or you feel you can collaborate with us in some way, please contact us or reach out to specific members of the team. Our team thanks you for your interest and looks forward to hearing from you.
