About - Lab1886 Silicon Valley
Combining the power of now with the technologies and business models of tomorrow, Lab1886 brings ideas to the innovation highway. As part of Daimler’s global Lab1886 incubator network, this is where new business models are developed and tested in proof-of-concept pilots.
Team - A team of doers
In short innovation sprints, we develop new prototypes and pilot promising business models. Our diverse team of designers, programmers, strategists, innovation scouts and project managers collaborates closely with the idea originators from Daimler’s various business units in North America.
Projects - Getting ideas on the road
Lab1886 solicits ideas from Daimler employees, subjects them to a “Shark Tank” competition to select the most promising, and develops them – aiming to move as quickly as possible.
