DB mindbox connects startups and Deutsche Bahn through its startup program.
We offer a unique opportunity to test and accelerate your ideas and products inside DB – with real DB data, in our real-world DB environment.
Our signature startup program is a 100 day guided program organized in batches of multiple use cases within a single focus area.
We are looking for technologies, applications, materials or business cases that have the potential to lift DB to the next level and drive the digital transformation at DB business units and organizations.
