The EUSP TOP150 is revealed!

We are very proud to have received 568 application for the 2019 edition of EUSP for Mobility.

Following weeks of thorough deliberation – each of these startups was analysed by three different experts (thanks to our 55 evaluators from all over Europe) – the 150 best candidates where chosen for phase 2 of the prize. Those candidates represent all of European Union countries, demonstrating the international coverage of the prize.

In our selection process, we focused on the ability to have an business model that can quickly generate revenues, and therefore have a high proportion of candidates who already have paying customers.

We are proud to see that our 2019 Top 150 candidates include startups that are more mature and with larger teams, as well as more advanced in terms of money raised.

Finally, we are happy to see that mobility now goes along with ecology thanks to candidates who always stress the ecological and social impacts of their offers.

After the phase 2, there will be 50 candidates remaining who will be submitted to the public vote. This vote will determine one of the ten winners. Stay tunned.

The second edition of the European Startup Prize for Mobility is live!

The second edition of the European Startup Prize for Mobility is live!

LOOK AT THE PICTURES

 

On December 13th 2018, the French Ministry for the Ecological and Inclusive Transition opened its doors for the launch of the second season of the European Startup Prize for Mobility. Before this edition takes us from Frankfurt to Barcelona, from Brainport to Paris and Brussels (where the 2019 winners will be announced on April 11th), here are the highlights of that evening.

“We all share the conviction that innovation has an essential role to play to rise to our common challenge: building a mobility for all, that restores our territorial cohesion.” In her opening statement, French Minister for Transportation Élisabeth Borne addresses the specific challenges of the “mobility-for-all”, in that it needs to answer both “purchasing power preoccupations” and “environmental and climatic stakes.” She strongly believes that “our transitions will have to rely on technological innovations.” That is precisely why the Ministry has chosen to support the second edition of the European Startup Prize (EUSP) for Mobility: the goal is not only to innovate, but to do so by bringing together public and private actors, large corporations and startups alike.

Karima Delli, the President of EUSP for Mobility and Chairwoman of the Committee on Transport and Tourism of the European Parliament, insists on what makes the competition unique: “Creating this prize was a bet. Who would have imagined a private-public partnership, especially with European institutions?” The bet payed off: last year, 500 applications flocked from 28 countries. In 2019, the prize wants to “go further and stronger”, to keep highlighting the “28 Silicon Valleys” that are building the mobility of tomorrow — a mobility that is “inclusive, safe, connected.” For Karima Delli, the EUSP for Mobility contributes to nothing less than creating a new world, “a world of innovation and clean, useful, modern and accessible technologies, a new world in which we respect the environment.”

 

Political leadership and expert support

The ten finalists of the 2018 edition are proof enough. Take Sampo Hietanen, founder and CEO of MaaS Global, the company behind the all-transport-in-one app Whim in Finland, the UK and Belgium: “Transport is always political. [For MaaS, mobility as a service], the demand is here and the physical elements are here too. That means we just need to have a digital access to them. And that takes political leadership, which is what Karima Delli is doing.” Winning the prize has allowed the company to make its voice heard: “It’s like a stamp of approval that gives you more credibility.” As well as access to European tech events that would otherwise have been inaccessible. Klaxit, a carpooling platform for work-home commutes, has also seen its visibility increase significantly. Enis Mansour, who is in charge of Klaxit’s strategy, enthusiastically notes that “this is the first step to create the European Silicon Valley” — although some prefer to use the plural, because Europe doesn’t centralise innovation like California does. Éliette Vincent, co-founder of “carpooling for parcels” platform Cocolis, particularly benefited from the legal and strategy support offered by the prize’s partners. She thanks “the ever-present teams who answered our issues.”

 

 

The EUSP laureates do get support from the Boston Consulting Group, assisted by law firms Parallel Avocats and Grimaldi Studio Legale as well as Via-ID, an accelerator for mobility startups. “It is similar to what we do for our clients: we test the business model, we make recommendations for sustainable growth and we introduce them to our network of clients,” explains Lorraine Forestier, General Manager of the Mobility Nation consortium founded by the BCG. The consulting firm is also on the jury of the prize, and puts the winners in touch with partnering companies: “We have a good vision of the trends and challenges and of the complementarity between these innovators and large corporations.”

“A wonderful tool for innovation monitoring”

So what do corporations look for? Setec Ferroviaire is a new partner of EUSP for Mobility. Fabrice Drouin, its General Director, explains: “We really enjoyed the dynamism of the team, the European dimension of the prize and the possibility to meet partners from all sectors, from the biggest European actors to startups, and to see what are the most promising ideas for the future of railway transportation.” Hélène Mauguéret, Head of Development at Setec, agrees: “It is a unique opportunity to have 500 to 800 mobility startups close at hand. It is a wonderful tool for innovation monitoring.”

To be a part of this database, startups just need to apply on the EUSP for Mobility’s website. Startups from all sizes and at any development stage are welcome, as long as they innovate for sustainable mobility, says Ben Costantini, co-founder and CEO of Startup Sesame, the largest alliance of Tech events in Europe. And to be among the winners? Pierre-Louis Martinie, Head of Sales of rating agency for startups Early Metrics, gives us a few clues. Early Metrics will help the prize’s team in the selection process: ahead of the competition, to define the criteria they will be looking for, and all the way to the selection the the 50 first startups. It looks at “extra-financial criteria: the project and its team, its development and the market. It overlaps with the six criteria that the prize’s team chose,” he highlights: the team, the market, the positive social and environmental impact, the innovation, the execution and the European dimension.

That last point is important. “European startups need to believe that their playground is Europe and not just their country,” concludes Jean-François Dhinaux, Head of Strategy of Via-ID at the end of the night. Violeta Bulc, the European Commissioner for Transport, supports the statement: “An idea by itself is not enough, you need the right framework to support you. This is where the EU comes in.” For the EUSP for Mobility, the watchword is definitely “Think European”. Submissions are open until January 21st, 2019!

Tallinn, First Stop of the European Startup Tour: Getting off to a good start

Tallinn, First Stop of the European Startup Tour: Getting off to a good start

On Thursday 24 and Friday 25 May, the winners of the European Startup Prize for Mobility met in the Capitol of Estonia for the first stop of the tour of EUSP’s European tour.

Base Camp: the event Latitude59, one of the biggest event on digitalisation in Europe. For two days, Voltia, Tracefy, DiniTech/NRGkick, Atsuke, Appyparking, AddSeat, Whim by Maas Global and Cocolis had the opportunity to pitch in front of investors and to get to know the Baltic ecosystem.

During the workshop: “Why and how to set up your mobility startup in the Baltics?” Finalist startups have discussed with local authorities and decision-makers to better understand the Baltics market.

We had the great honour to welcome Minister Kadri Simson, Estonian Minister of Economic Affairs and Infrastructure to introduce the workshop. All the speakers have presented the advantages of the Estonian ecosystem and have highlighted success stories made in Estonia such as Skype or Taxify.

Speakers included:  Arnaud Castaignet, Head of Public Relations, Republic of Estonia’s e-Residency program; Egita Polanska, Program & Partnerships, Startup Wise Guys a famous accelerator; Anu Oks, Managing Director, EstBAN a Baltic VC network; Toomas Seppel, Hedman Partners Law Firm; Simona Frazzani, Associate Grimaldi Studio Legale; Martin Gorosko head of Tallinn Tehnopol & Karl Aru, Expansion manager of Taxify who have recently raised $175M led by Daimler at a $1B valuation.

After a fun and relaxing evening with all the participants of Latitude 59, the 8 finalists had the great opportunity to have a demonstrating booth at the event and could present their activities to the interested participants (and yes, absentees are always wrong ;)).

The objectives of the first tour of the tour have been met: the finalists had the opportunity to make new contacts, reach investors outside of their home country. and Pitch and pitch again! But EUSP is also a human adventure, meetings and the creation of a community of mobility startups!

We are looking forward to our next meeting at IFA – Berlin for the next stop of the Tour on 3-4 September.

On Thursday 24 and Friday 25 May, the European Startups Prize for Mobility (EUSP) winners will travel to the Estonian capital for the first stop of their European tour. The second stop will take place at the beginning of September in Berlin.

This event follows the ceremony that awarded the 10 most promising European mobility startups on 22 February in Brussels.

This first stop of the tour will take place at Latitude59, which is one of the major European digital events. During two days, EUSP startups will have the opportunity to present their projects and become familiar with the Baltic ecosystem, including local decision-makers and investors, through roundtables or pitches. We will be honoured by the presence of Kadri Simson, Estonian Minister of Economic Affairs and Infrastructure.

Created at the initiative of Karima Delli, Member of the European Parliament, Ecologist and President of the Transport Committee of the European Parliament, the EUSP is dedicated to European startups focused on green and connected mobility. The prize was launched in December 2017 under the high patronage of the European Commission, the European Parliament and several economic stakeholders (Blablacar, BCG and Via ID). It received more than 500 applications.

The goal is simple: create the European silicon valley of mobility.

On February 22, a jury of experts announced the four winners of the prize. The winners of this first edition, Cargonexx, Cocolis, Klaxit and MaaS Global will benefit from tailor-made support designed by The Boston Consulting Group, Via ID, Parallel Lawyers and Grimaldi Studio, to accelerate their development. For the finalists, the adventure continues with the European tour UESP which will take them to several major European capitals and give them high visibility at major Tech events in Europe (Barcelona, Paris, Berlin, Copenhagen & Tallin). The jury also rewarded three very promising mobility start up, Drivy, Stuart and Txfy, with a special mention from the jury, as well as Switzerland’s BestMile.

Cargonexx, Cocolis, Klaxit and MaaS Global win the first edition of the EUSP for mobility

Cargonexx, Cocolis, Klaxit and MaaS Global win the first edition of the EUSP for mobility

The major European mobility players met yesterday in Brussels for the closing ceremony of the European Startup Prize for Mobility, during which the 10 finalists of the prize met in front of a jury of experts.

 

Thursday 22 February was marked by innovation and mobility in Brussels, where major groups, startups, politicians and experts in technology and transport met for the closing ceremony of the European Startup Prize for mobility, during which the prize’s four winning startups were selected. It was also an opportunity to pay tribute to the careers of three European mobility successes, Drivy, Stuart and Taxify, who received a special mention from the jury, along with Switzerland’s BestMile.

 

Cargonexx, Cocolis, Klaxit, and MaaS Global four new European champions of sustainable mobility

Selected by the jury of the European Startup Prize for mobility from among 500 candidates on criteria such as their ecological and social impact and the degree of innovation of their product or service, 10 finalist startups pitched their businesses in front of ten personalities from the world of transport, technology and economy, as well as the co-founders of the prize: MEP Karima Delli, the Boston Consulting Group and the startup accelerator specialising in new mobility, Via ID.

Focus on Cargonexx, Cocolis, Klaxit, and MaaS Global who stood out and won the first edition of the European Startup Prize for mobility.

Cargonexx – Allemagne
Cargonexx reduces empty runs in truck transport through artificial intelligence. Since its start last year, the German startup is building Europe’s largest network of truck capacities with already more than 60.000 trucks. Shippers can order truck loads with just a mouse click. The orders are forwarded automatically to the truck that best suits the tour. Self-learning neural networks predict peak loads and send the trucks to where they are needed in advance. A win-win-win-win situation: the shippers save money, the transporters earn more and we all have less trucks on the roads.

For Karima Delli, who is behind the award,” The European Startup Prize for mobility will now give these startups the boost they need to take on a new dimension, offering them international visibility and accompanying them in their development. This award represents a first instance of European recognition for them, and positions them as leaders in sustainable innovation in their market.

A first impetus that will enable them to develop in other markets, notably through tailor-made support designed by The Boston Consulting Group, Via ID, Parallel Avocats and Grimaldi Studio. They will also take part, along with the six other startups that took part in the pitch, in a tour of the biggest European tech events during which they will meet investors, partners and their potential future customers.

The ceremony was also an opportunity to highlight three European startups who paved the way for the winners of the European Startup Prize for Mobility by awarding them an honorary prize. The French successes Drivy and Stuart as well as the Estonian Txfy were awarded for their careers and the quality of their European development

Due to the high quality of some projects from outside the European Union, the selection committee has finally decided to create a special prize. For this first edition, the winner is the Swiss startup BestMile, an award-winning autonomous vehicle fleet management platform.
