MIH for Startups

Why MIH wants to start the program?


MIH Consortium is creating an open EV ecosystem that promotes collaboration in the mobility industry. Our mission is to realize key technologies, develop reference designs and standards, while we bridge the gap for alliance members resulting in a lower barrier to entry, accelerated innovation, and shorter development cycles. Our goal is to bring together strategic partners to create innovative solutions for the next generation of EV, autonomous driving, and mobility service applications.


MIH x Techstars


Techstars is the worldwide network that helps entrepreneurs succeed. Founded in 2006, Techstars began with three simple ideas—entrepreneurs create the future, collaboration drives innovation, and great ideas can come from anywhere. Today our mission is to make innovation accessible to everyone, everywhere. We do this by connecting startups, investors, corporations, and cities to create a more sustainable and inclusive world. Since 2006, Techstars has invested in more than 2,794 companies and today has a market cap of $70 Billion.


Over the years, Techstars has over 120 mobility-related startups, over 108 energy-related startups and over 600 AI/ML related startups in the global network.

From 2015-2020, Techstars Detroit Mobility Accelerator focused on the future of mobility, automotive and transportation and has invested in 54 mobility startups from 11 different countries with 15 corporate innovation partners, including Ford, Verizon, Honda Bosch, McDonald’s, etc. In Europe, Techstars Smart Mobility Accelerator focuses on transformative smart mobility technologies for smart infrastructure and smart cities in 2020 & 2021. After two programs, the Accelerator grows and expands to become Italy’s first-ever Cities of the Future Accelerator in Torino, Italy and focuses on smart, efficient, sustainable and liveable cities.

MIH shares the common vision with Techstars to connects everyone and helps maintain a sustainable future. With MIH’s EV ecosystem that promotes collaboration in the mobility industry and Techstars’s global related network, we believe that we can start to reshape user experiences for next generation of electric vehicles, autonomous driving, and mobility service.
