Engineering the City as a Service
URBAN-X is a venture accelerator founded by MINI in partnership with SOSV. We educate, invest in and advocate for startups who are shaping the future of cities through technology and design.
URBAN-X combines the core competencies of MINI, including design, engineering, usability and community-building with SOSV’s best-in-class acceleration processes, worldwide investing experience, and manufacturing network. With $300M in capital under management, SOSV was recently named the third-largest seed investor worldwide.
Each company selected for URBAN-X becomes a member of our family. Throughout and beyond the 14 weeks of our program, we work with our portfolio every step of the way to achieve product-market fit and a strong foundation for scale.
