Innovation factory challenges Scania's business model
With Innovation Factory, Scania addresses the disruptive changes in the ecosystem of transport and logistics and stimulates new innovations outside of Scania’s core business.
The intrapreneurship programme, Scania Innovation Factory, was launched to give our employees the skills and support to develop bright ideas and bring them to market. The purpose is also to create an entrepreneurial pathway through the company that drives innovation faster with less risk, but also to develop new business models and actual revenue streams. Each year, four to six selected teams are given leave from their regular duties to test and validate their innovative business idea as part of their employment, with SEK 500,000 seed funding from Scania.
In 2022, for the first time, two teams from Innovation Factory were transferred to Scania Ventures at Mobility Solutions. There, they are working to scale the business ideas that have been validated to make them ready for the markets.
