    The BMW Group founded BMW i Ventures, a venture capital company based in New York City, in order to remain flexibly engaged in the emerging field of mobility services. The group is seeking start-ups with the potential to create a lasting impact in the area of mobility services, primarily through cooperation with the BMW i brand. Additionally, these start-ups should have a strong focus on improving personal mobility in urban areas-- automotive or otherwise. Whether it be intermodal travel, smart parking, recommendations, communication or other avenues, these services should deliver innovative and intelligent benefits to today's growing urban population. The BMW i Ventures Incubator offers an open workspace for innovative startups, in particular those with a special focus on future mobility and clean tech.
