After the success of the 1st edition, the European Startup Prize for Mobility is back and launch its 2nd edition today!

The EUSP is a unique accelerator programme that supports startups developing sustainable mobility innovations, with the aim of giving them the resources necessary to scale up in Europe.

Via ID is proud to be a partner of the European Startup Prize for mobility for the second year in a row, playing a role as a connector between the different players in the mobility ecosystem in France and internationally. Via ID puts its expertise at the service of the award to recruit and evaluate startups.

Created to support startup companies who are developing sustainable mobility innovations, the European Startup Prize For Mobility is a leading public-private initiative first launched by Karima Delli, Chairwoman of the European Parliament’s Transport and Tourism Committee, and co-founded by Boston Consulting Group and Via ID.

Supported by both the European Parliament and the European Commission, as well as influential partners such as ADP, GRDF, Europcar Mobility Group and RATP, the competition invites mobility startups from around Europe to participate. These partners all bring together their networks, financial knowledge and key areas of influence as they work to recognize future mobility champions over the course of the competition.

 

The European Startup Prize for mobility has a dual objective :

All European startups wishing to make mobility more sustainable and meeting these criteria can apply until 21 January 2019:

The top 10 selected entries (both the Silver and Gold Award recipients) win an all-expenses paid tour of five European tech capitals to meet potential customers, investors, business accelerators and local partners throughout 2019.

In addition to this tour, four Gold Award winners will also be selected to receive specific entrepreneurial, business and legal mentoring from Boston Consulting Group and other legal and corporate partners to help grow their operations in Europe and beyond. Via ID will support early stage startups.

Five hundred startups participated in last year’s edition of the European Startup Prize For Mobility. Selected winners included Klaxit, Cocolis, Cargonexx and Whim by Maas Global.
