If your submission application ​to the main event is accepted you will have access to Ford executives, engineers, business teams as well as invited guests during a 2-day online challenge. A total prize package - 10,000 Euro’s to be shared across 3 winning companies

If you have an idea that can enhance the Connected Car, “Beamed in” or a smartphone based app “Brought in”, then the Ford Virtual MakeItDriveable Challenge is for you!
