The European Startup Prize for Mobility: a catalyst for change

The European Startup Prize for Mobility, an EU-founded Acceleration and Investment Programme for clean mobility startups, has been making waves since its inception in 2017. This prestigious program, endorsed by the European Parliament and the European Commission, has garnered the support of major mobility corporations. Its primary aim is to nurture sustainable mobility startups poised to reshape the industry.

So why did Ayvens choose to become a partner?

Our commitment to innovation, sustainability, and our dedication to shaping the future of mobility made our partnership with the European Startup Prize for Mobility an inevitable choice. We firmly believe that to remain at the forefront of sustainable mobility, it is essential to foster a culture of innovation and stay ahead of the trends impacting our industry through being proactive in our search for new ideas, trends and changes to come. Our partnership with the European Startup Prize allows us to scout hundreds of startups and review dozens of applications, giving us insights into what's happening in the ecosystem and enabling us to anticipate potential future partners.

Championing innovation: Ayvens' sponsorship of the "Female Entrepreneur" category

One of the highlights of our partnership with the European Startup Prize for Mobility was Ayvens' sponsorship of the "Female Entrepreneur" category. We selected the startup NUDGD, led by Ola Rynge, Co-Founder & CTO, to receive this prestigious award. NUDGD is a SaaS platform that leverages the power of behavioural science to encourage eco-friendly habits, inspiring the shift from private car usage to embracing active mobility and public transportation.

This partnership exemplifies our dedication to catalysing positive change in the mobility landscape, and we are excited to be part of a network that shares our vision for a more sustainable future. Through this partnership, Ayvens has had the opportunity to engage with numerous startups, delve into their innovative concepts, and keep a finger on the pulse of emerging market trends. We will be assessing the potential for future collaborations and joint endeavours, eagerly anticipating the promising directions these industry innovators' ideas might steer us toward.

Customer-centric innovation

Our approach to innovation is deeply customer centric. We believe that our products of tomorrow should address the pain points of all our customers. This customer-centricity starts with internal innovation challenges and extends to collaborative efforts with our clients. We work hand in hand with them to ensure our products match their needs precisely. Our aim is to stay at the forefront of the industry, and we do this by collaborating with entities that have specific skills we may lack, ensuring that we have the agility to innovate quickly.

We look beyond the horizon, aiming to create mobility solutions for the next 10 to 15 years. We don't wait for the train to arrive; we anticipate it. Our long-term vision has given rise to solutions like Move, our multi-mobility offering, and our Electric Vehicle end-to-end offer, which are built today to meet the mobility needs of tomorrow.

Ayvens is committed to making mobility easy and affordable for our clients. We're ready to lead the industry through innovation and have substantial building blocks for the future of mobility in place. Our goal is clear - to be the leading sustainable mobility player. We'll achieve this by continuing to prioritize sustainability and innovation in everything we do.
