Via ID launches a new incubation program, Summer Sprint: 12 weeks for entrepreneurs with a still young project in the field of new mobility and wishing to structure it to move on to the next stage.

 

The call for projects launched last May made it possible to identify around fifty project leaders, all of whom aim to move the lines in the new mobility sector by proposing more sustainable solutions.

 

After the evaluation of the applications, 10 finalists were selected and had the opportunity to pitch in front of an experts’ jury composed of France Mobilités, BPI France, CarStudio, Journal du Net, Cyclofix, Groupito, Valiuz & Via ID.

The selected projects aim to:

  • revolutionize the use of mobility data;
  • to convert a traditional bicycle into an E-Bike in a very accessible way;
  • to secure the practice of 2-wheelers with a very innovative IOT solution.

The winners of the Summer Sprint

fluctuo

Fluctuo has developed solutions to collect, analyze and visualize data from shared mobility services (bicycles, scooters and motor scooters). Designed for cities and operators, Fluctuo provides more reliable data on these new modes of transport.
