From over 100 applications from all over Europe and associated countries, EIT Urban Mobility selected the 25 most-promising startups to be part of the third cohort of this 6-month Accelerator Programme. Out of these, five will be participating in the South Programme, kicking-off officially on 12 July.
The selected companies will benefit from financial support, mentoring, training, expert workshops, free office space, access to local ecosystems, and infrastructure, and a lot more provided by the acceleration partners in the five Innovations Hubs.
All the teams and their dedicated founders are solving mobility-related problems with innovations that make our lives easier and happier. Learn more about the startups from Innovation Hub South and how they are transforming urban mobility to adapt it to society’s needs.
