Volvo Group’s CampX accelerator adds fintech to innovation focus areas

(IN BRIEF) Volvo Group’s innovation hub, CampX, has expanded its focus areas to include financial technology (fintech) to accelerate the transition to sustainable transport solutions. Fintech is transforming the financial services industry through partnerships with startups and changing how customers can utilise Volvo Group’s products and services. Volvo Financial Services, as the captive finance arm of the group, will continue to provide innovative financial solutions for customers to acquire sustainable transport and equipment solutions. CampX operates three tracks – the incubator, accelerator, and venture builder – and has locations in Gothenburg, Bangalore, Lyon, and Greensboro, and focuses on innovation in connectivity, electromobility, automation, sustainability, and fintech.

(PRESS RELEASE) GOTHENBURG, 14-Apr-2023 — /EuropaWire/ — “Our industry is undergoing a profound transformation, both in terms of the products we help customers acquire and through different business models that make it easier for customers to succeed in their business,” said Allen Atchley, senior vice president, strategy and innovation at Volvo Financial Services. “With this new focus area under the CampX umbrella, we have a tremendous opportunity to cultivate new, disruptive innovations that will not only speed up the transition to sustainable, fossil-free transport, but also create value for our customers and the Volvo Group.”

Fintech is furthering transformation within the transport industry, not only changing how customers utilize products and services, but how customers interact with those offers. A great example is insurance tech, or insurtech, which is looking closely at making insurance products more dynamic and easier to access. Fintech is also advancing collaboration, connecting stakeholders and enabling them to work more closely together to realize a more sustainable future.

“The CampX concept has proven itself successful, with strong innovations resulting from collaboration,” said Helene Niklasson, Head of CampX by Volvo Group. “Now with fintech as a focus area, we will even better support our customers with productivity and sustainable solutions.”

Since its inauguration in 2019, CampX has hosted more than 50 startups as they developed their ideas.
