“The need for safer, more sustainable and more inclusive mobility is a major issue for our modern societies,” said Karima Delli, president of the Committee on Transport and Tourism of the European Parliament, and the head of the initiative. “We created the European Startup Prize for Mobility as a response to the global challenges of mobility, with the belief that Europe must be the continent of innovation and talent for a better quality of life for all.”
The European Startup Prize for Mobility aims to promote European technology startups to envision and develop innovative solutions in the field of sustainable mobility. In the long run, the objective of the prize is to help the most innovative startups to develop on the European market.
The call for participation in the project will be followed by a rigorous selection process lasting several months. In selecting the most suitable candidates, a team of experts will consider criteria such as market demand, structure of the team, the European vision of the project, and its ecological benefit.
The 10 best startups selected will be unveiled during a major event in Brussels on 11 April 2019.
After this, they will have the opportunity to participate in a tour of five large European cities later in 2019, where they will be meeting potential customers, investors, business incubators, and local partners at various ‘tech’ events.
In addition to the tour, four ‘super winners’ will be selected to receive support to help them develop their activities in Europe and beyond. Some of these will be commercial and legal plans from the Boston Consulting Group and other legal and commercial partners of the project.
