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.
