EXPLORE OUR PORTFOLIO

Created by MINI.


MINI is an iconic global mobility brand that puts technology, engineering, and design on equal footing. The original MINI was started out as a direct response to the fuel shortage caused by the 1956 Suez Crisis, with the innovative design of a fuel efficient “proper miniature car,” taking less space in cities. MINI founded URBAN-X to support startups who share those values as part of a continued exploration of projects that improve urban life. As cities evolve as centers of opportunity, we aim to shape the conversation around which ideas will break through – supporting meaningful change through inclusive dialogue and an unrelenting passion for challenging the status quo.
