On Monday 3rd and Tuesday 4th September, the European Startups Prize for Mobility (EUSP) winners were in Berlin for the second stop of their European tour to attend IFA Next, one of the major European digital events.
During these two days, EUSP startups had the opportunity to present their projects and to become familiar with the German ecosystem, including local decision-makers and investors. First, startups have pitched at IFA Next and we are very proud of Atsukè who won the « Best Pitch Award » of the show that day. A great recognition for their work for a sustainable and digital mobility. #EUSP startups are making their way into European tech!
The day after, our finalists met a high-level panel at our workshop like Dirk 0. Evenson, Director of New Mobility World, Tanja Kufner, Partner at MHP – A Porsche Company or Urs Rahne, Partner at BCG Digital Ventures.
Conclusion of this successful morning : Venture capital investments in Germany increased substantially in the last 5 years. Especially in mobility: infrastructure, e-commerce, sharing, collective transportation, hardware and software. And new funds recently hired mobility experts ! A very good timing for mobility ! After a beautiful stage in Berlin, a new one is coming up already : we will be in Copenhagen on September 18 & 19 for ITS World Congress. Stay tuned!
