MHPFirstTuesday February 4th – Blockchain
We are heading towards an industry that is more and more connected. The mobility sector is experiencing a rapid change in prevailing market demands and trends that have dominated the industry for decades. Today’s mobility platforms are developed to meet people’s need for mobility solutions. The new platform-based business models connect people to services. New services range from connected and personalized vehicles to establishing electric charging infrastructure. The introduction of new core technologies around CASE (Connected, Autonomous, Shared, Electric) requires new competencies and meets new challenges along the way. Blockchain technology or more general “Distributed Ledger Technology” (DLT) solves some of the challenges – mainly by adding “trust” or efficiency – and brings new opportunities to the mobility sector as a whole.
At our next MHPFirstTuesday, February 4th starting at 6pm at our MHPLab Berlin, we will have the pleasure of hosting Blockchain/DLT startups of the mobility sector which provide solutions to solve challenges of CASE, and to bring them together for an interesting pitch session. But that’s not all! To identify use cases where trust between different parties is a prerequisite in the future, we wrote a white paper together with our friends of RIDDLE&CODE - The Blockchain Interface Company (riddleandcode.com), from which we will proudly present the key insights.
If you can’t wait until February, feel free to get the whole white paper here.
Here are the participating startups:

“In the age of digitalization, the collaboration between startups and corporates can offer new opportunities. Corporates, established companies and medium-sized enterprises have excellent practices for manufacturing products as well as marketing them.
When it comes to forcing an environment of creativity and innovation, these enterprises often fall short. Startups are the polar opposite. Their teams are creative and consist of out-of-the-box thinkers to generate innovative solutions and develop new business models. The biggest challenge in their case is to successfully scale their business. For this reason, MHP has established the MHPLab in Germany’s mobility hub Berlin that serves as a platform in order to bring different topics as well as different people together.”
