Validate your Business Idea with accilium Ventures

Venture building is a collaborative process where we partner with corporations in the mobility sector to create new business models that can significantly contribute to their profits within 5-7 years. Our aim is to help de-risk the process of building new, non-core businesses that can explore and exploit new strategic areas of growth outside of the corporation’s core competencies.

Building and Investment Phases of accilium Ventures






We align on strategic areas of interest, and unfair advantages. This lets us search for the best venture opportunities to co-create (or co-invest in). We look for BIG opportunities with high growth potential and large addressable markets.


12-15 MONTHS

Ideas which pass both accilium Venutres and the corporate’s Investment committee get funding and runway to iterate the business model and prove product-market fit.

Launching in the market, the founding venture team rapidly iterates towards a repeatable business model.



The venture is strategically aligned and drawing down on the corporate’s unfair advantages, focused on rapid growth.

We agree to KPIs that will set enterprise value at the Take-Control stage.



With the venture proven, we exit (typically year 4, 5 or 6) and sell our share to the corporate.

Our model ensures the corporate can always take 100% ownership. The corporate already owns 30-40% of the venture and has agreed upon KPIs that trigger the valuation.
