M&A Tech Invest. We are investing in the future

Connectivity, autonomous driving, car sharing, and electric drive systems — each one of these four trends has the potential to turn our industry upside down. But the real revolution lies in intelligently linking the four trends.

If you’re involved with future-oriented technologies and business models, M&A Tech Invest, Daimlers Technology & Venture department is the right investment partner for you.

In addition to traditional product areas such as cars, vans, buses, and trucks, the investment team also focuses on automotive related services, new mobility solutions and services, and a broad portfolio of top venture capital funds all over the world.

We are looking for startups and innovative technologies

Vehicles and services. We’re preparing Daimler for the digital age. We have been synonymous with a strong spirit of innovation for over a century. In order to continue promoting innovation, we’re always on the lookout for opportunities to grow, organically and otherwise.

In addition to its venture investment activities, the team is also responsible for technology and startup acquisitions for the Daimler Group.

As a result, Technology & Venture is always on the lookout for innovative companies and technologies — globally and "stage-agnostic". In other words, we are interested in all types of companies ranging from early stage start-ups to well-established technology companies.

We are continuously optimizing our business portfolio by investing in startups or making strategic acquisitions. In this way we’re helping to position the Daimler Group for a bright future and supporting our company’s capacity for innovation.

Our aim is to assist the companies we invest in by immediately adding strategic value from day one. We not only provide financial support, but also contribute the expertise and strength of the Daimler Group by connecting your startup with our experts. And we also make our global strategic network available to support the development of our portfolio companies.
