What is the DB mindbox 100 day signature program about?

  • The main goal of our 100 day program is to evaluate whether your solution will work at Deutsche Bahn. Depending on the use case, this can be determined using a proof-of-concept of a new product or service, an adaptation of an existing product or service for the rail environment, or a pilot project to test an established product or service inside a large corporation.
  • During our 100 day program, you will be part of a batch (e.g. a discipline such as HR, maintenance or construction) consisting of several startups that are working on individual use cases over the same period of time.
  • You can apply for individual use cases described in the call by the deadline indicated for each batch.
  • Your application will be evaluated, and selected startups will be invited to pitch in front of an expert jury.
  • Startups that win over the expert jury will get a spot in the batch and take part in the 100 day program.
  • You’ll receive EUR 25,000 with zero equity taken when participating in the 100 day program and you will get 24/7 access to our DB mindbox coworking space along the Spree river (unless a global pandemic makes this impossible).
  • During the 100 days you’ll work closely with a DB department and will receive expert coaching and mentoring.
