European Startup Prize… Inventing a sustainable, connected and shared system of mobility

European citizens want to travel more quickly and easily while respecting the environment.

By co-founding the European Startup Prize for Mobility, Via ID wants to promote and catalyse local initiatives, aware of the need to create European leaders in order to respond to the global challenges of mobility.
