We strive for a sustainable and viable future for mobility. That needs brave innovators along the entire mobility value chain. We help our clients become these innovators.
Our focus on building new businesses, scaling digital products & experiences, and funding promising start-up ideas is captured by our Loop for innovation. We believe in achieving success through short and fast iterations, regardless of whether we turn ideas into products, products into business models, or start-ups into scale-ups. We do so with a clear dedication to sustainability. As agents of end-to-end innovation, our Berylls Digital Ventures offering complements the overall Berylls Loop perfectly.
We are proud of our outstanding track record of helping clients overcome challenges in developing digital customer experiences that connect seamlessly to the physical world. We draw on our experience to create new business models that can develop into successful ventures that enable our staff and other partners to become entrepreneurs. We also commit our own capital and, where necessary, secure external funding from investors and partners who share our convictions.
We use a company builder model to help clients turn ideas into revenue-generating products and launch the next generation of start-ups within the automobility sector.
In this we follow a three-phase model of ideation, validation, and incubation: it moves beyond pure proof-of-concept work to establishing a product-market fit from an early stage.
PHASE I: IDEATION
The ideation phase is a continuous and agile process. We capture ideas and opportunities from a broad range of input sources, evaluate them against pre-defined hypotheses and build a prioritized backlog of key deliverables.
PHASE II: VALIDATION
The validation phase takes hypotheses to the real world, seeking early customer engagement to prove the product-market fit and win early buy-in from investment stakeholders.
PHASE III: INCUBATION
The incubation phase leverages the validation already achieved to fast-track product launch, creating a lean team set-up with a clearly defined owner, capable of rapid scaling.
We go beyond providing digital tools as extensions to strategic projects with our clients. We develop digital products from prototyping to market launch, bringing ideas to life.
We prototype with a market mindset. We explore and validate digital opportunities from all relevant perspectives, including technology, business model, market dynamics, and customer needs.
We build digital products fast using our two-phase approach that leads to end-to-end solutions with scalable architectures.
PHASE I: PROTOTYPING
PHASE II: BUILDING
We leverage our strategic know-how and global network to accelerate start-up growth, drawing on our unmatched automobility industry and domain expertise, and our long-term relationships with key industry leaders.
We have the track record and experience to identify “hidden” and emerging automobility segments and viable business cases, within a structured validation approach.
We mentor start-up and emerging businesses through pitch deck acceleration, go-to-market calibration and business network design and development.
We match innovative start-ups with investors, bringing in-house resources and external funding together through our unrivalled network of automobility clients and partners.

Since 2018, Berylls Digital Ventures has focused on creating successful innovative, digital and data-centric products. Machine learning plays a key role, from the initial idea to continuous validation and data analysis, as well as creation of the finished digital product.
Our team based in Berlin has the experience and skills, as well as a focus on agile working, to help clients become cutting-edge entrepreneurs. Here are some of our projects:
More than ever, the lifestyle and personality of the modern consumer determines their buying decisions – and never more so than when buying a car. The final choice broadcasts the customer’s style. Our revolutionary, award-winning Lifestyle Configurator allows clients to own this shift, ready to deliver highly tailored cars that personify their buyers. The Lifestyle Configurator was developed with Nolte & Lauth and the Fraunhofer Institute for Intelligent Analysis and Information Systems – for and with Mercedes-Benz.
To date the Lifestyle Configurator has won three Red Dot Awards, as well as the coveted Automotive Brand Contest “Best of the Best” award in the digital category at the Salon Mondial de l’Automobile in Paris.
