UK start-ups showcase future mobility solutions

Mobility innovations including a sharing travel service app have been showcased by UK start-ups entering this year’s European Startup Prize for Mobility.

150 mobility start-ups are entering the next stage of the competition

Supported by both the European Parliament and the European Commission, the competition aims to promote European start-ups developing sustainable, safe and inclusive mobility innovations in Europe and beyond.

The first stage of the selection process for the second edition has seen 600 European start-ups enter, whittled down to 150 projects that will enter the next stage of the competition.

This includes 14 entries from the UK, covering innovations ranging from a blockchain-powered mobility solution, to a personal travel assistant for people with disabilities, to a sharing travel service app.

The UK’s entries include CYCL.bike, a London-based team working on two-wheel mobility solutions; Faxi, which incentivises carpooling for commuters; and Kaahoo, which is building urban mobility platforms.

The next stage of the competition will see the entries short-listed to the final 50, from which a European-wide public vote will pick one of the 10 winners.

The prize is an all-expenses-paid European tour of five major technology hubs for all 10 winning start-ups, and two months of mentoring with the Boston Consulting Group and law firms for four super winners.
