Join Europe’s largest mobility hackathon on 18- 20 September

The InnovaCity Hackathon brings together more than 200 innovators, entrepreneurs, mobility professionals, and municipalities to tackle Europe’s largest mobility issues. 

Cities will act as hosts for our 3 hackathons presenting their toughest mobility challenges. Participants will join a diverse and international team to create an actionable solution to solve these challenges. 

This year, we will host 3 Hackathons in Munich-Barcelona, Tel-Aviv, and Helsinki. The winning team from each Hackathon will get a chance to attend Global Week in December 2020 where the top teams from each hub will battle it out on the international stage for a grand prize (to be announced shortly!).

The winning teams for InnovaCity Munich-Barcelona are in with a chance to win a spot in our exclusive 8-week startup Bootcamp Xplore, Bits & Pretzels tickets, and a prototyping voucher for Makerspace

Accelerator Hub East Bootcamp for startups is coming!!

Prague, 27-28 September 2020.

The most promising early-stage start-up teams with business ideas to reduce congestion and increase transport efficiency selected in June 2020 will pitch their ideas in Prague! The selected start-ups come with innovative approaches to make commuting faster or more enjoyable and with concepts to accelerate the transition to low- or zero-emission means of transport. All other possible ideas that help to solve mobility-related problems are also included in their proposals.

Concept

The Accelerator HUB East Bootcamp will be organised in parallel to the Innovation Week Czech Republic 2020, a major technology event organised by the European Leadership & Academic Institute (ELAI).

Due to the Corona situation, it will be a hybrid event, thus allowing for on-site and on-line participation. The onsite participants will be welcomed at the Forum Karlin in Prague, Czech Republic – one of the national top high-tech venues — as well as at Namesti Kinskych 6, Prague 5 – the location of PowerHUB  

Bootcamp Agenda Draft

27-28 September, 2020: The first two days will focus on improving the start-ups’ presentation’s skills for the 3 minutes pitches (business quality as well as graphical and vocal skills).  Participants from the start-up teams will get direct feedback from the experts from our Mentor Mobility Pool, coming from different EU countries like Germany, Spain, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Finland etc. 

29 September, 2020: The Accelerator start-up teams will present their 3 minute pitches to the Innovation Week Czech Republic’s audience during the  afternoon session of the Demo day

All the teams will have access to the main Innovation Week events.  A common brochure introducing the EIT Urban Mobility Acceleration programme and all start-ups taking part in the event will be prepared and distributed during the event.

The EIT Urban Mobility Accelerator is an EU-funded programme running in five European regional hubs implemented through partners to take early-stage mobility start-ups to the next level.
