european startup prize 2019

A unique accelerator scheme that supports startups developing sustainable mobility innovations has named the 50 finalists in its latest programme.

The European Startup Prize for Mobility is a joint venture run by the European Parliament’s Transport and Tourism Committee, Boston Consulting Group and Via ID that invites mobility startups from around Europe to submit ideas for the future of transport.

This year’s launch received 570 applications from across Europe and 10 winners will be chosen to take part in a business accelerator scheme.

During the selection process, each of the 570 entrants was analysed by three experts in mobility and startup organisations. They whittled the selection of prospective winners down to 150 before selecting the finalists.

The final will be hosted Brussels later this year, with nine companies chosen by jury and a tenth chosen by the public on Facebook.
