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 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.

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.
