What are challenges about?

  • Our challenges are based on specific problems or questions that business units of Deutsche Bahn face.
  • DB mindbox and the DB business units pre-select startups to invite to participate in a challenge.
  • During the challenge you’ll compete with other startups (usually three to five) working on a solution to the problem together with the DB business unit.
  • Each challenge has a different setup and timeline depending on the specific problem to solve. Funding for participation and/or for the challenge winner also varies from challenge to challenge.
  • All of the details about a specific challenge can be found on the challenge call website.
