Our collaborative success stories

This is what we’ve already achieved with other start-ups.

Car foiling ex-works

Individual foliage and
corporate advertising designs,
directly for my car.

The challenge
How could we enable customers to have their vehicle individually wrapped, directly from the factory? Today, the foiling process is not yet suitable for mass production. In the future, customers will be able to have their cars wrapped in a convenient way, directly in the factory. But how do you develop this business idea further and bundle the know-how of various specialist departments across the Volkswagen Group?
The solution
As part of the intrapreneurship programme of Volkswagen's Innovation Fund 2, colleagues from the Volkswagen plant in Emden and VWFS AG founded a project with a start-up approach: "InnFolio". In addition to the vehicle wrap know-how of our colleagues, we brought together the accumulated knowledge of VWFS AG, from market research and leasing to valuable multipliers. With tangible success: InnFolio is in the accelerator phase and will soon be launched on the market.
Real-time data analysis for drive optimisation

More speed for the development
of a fuel-saving app.

The challenge
Tight schedules, great scepticism of logistics industry. That’s a problem a tech start-up has to face, when searching for a partner to develop a real-time-telemetry processing app, that allows for more sustainable and economic driving.
The solution
With EURO-Leasing – a fully owned subsidiary of VWFS AG – we synergised the Portuguese start-up Fuelsave with a strong partner. In addition to accessing the data of thousands of vehicles, they were able to create a real test environment in numerous trucks for their "Driving Coach App". All this with an aim to become the tech leader in real-time data analysis for driving optimisation.
