What is SIC?
The Startup Intelligence Center was established to radically innovate and fully digitize the financial, insurance and mobility services of Daimler Financial Services by collaborating with startups. The SIC identifies pain points along the customer journey of DFS’ existing products and scouts for relevant startups to solve them in co-creation.
What is SIC’s role in the Factory Görlitzer Park?
To successfully innovate financial and mobility services SIC wants to partner with the Factory community. To do so the SIC is an entry point for early to later-stage startups seeking for the right corporate partner to improve their products, get access to pilot markets and grow their business. SIC is looking for potential entrepreneurial champions in the following focus areas: Virtual & Augmented Reality, Mobile Payment, Big Data Analytics, Artificial & Emotional Intelligence, Cyber Security & Fraud Detection, Blockchain, Mobility Services, Banking Technologies, RegTechs as well as InsurTechs.
What can you expect?
The SIC is designed as a global network of round about 40 internal subject matter experts and 10 startup scouts from different parts of the world ready to lead use cases to execution. In their office hour the SIC team will introduce ways how to co-create and invites to jointly generate use cases for potential prototypes.
