  • €349 997

The Scale-up Programme will promote the proposed solutions of 12 mature European scale-ups, introduce them to different stakeholders, and provide access to mentors, learning sessions, and events. Additionally, seven of the participants will have the opportunity to access funding, on exchange of equity, and to solve one urban mobility challenge presented by a city or industry through the development of a pilot supported by the Scale-up Programme. 

The nine city challenges range from improving parking and docking capacity for bikes and scooters, creating a tool to collect data that will lead to more electrical vehicle charging infrastructure, and streamlining logistics by creating a B2B marketplace amongst several others. 


To increase the market competitiveness of European solutions in urban mobility by identifying and accelerating market opportunities of mature start-ups.

Main Objective

To identify and accelerate market opportunities for mature start-ups, supporting them in the initial phase in the form of pilots.
