Fredrik Hanel, EIT Urban Mobility Business Creation Director
We thoroughly enjoyed both programmes. Meeting and working with mentors, city representatives and investors to review, identify and implement improvements to our growth, fundraising, marketing, communication strategies, etc. It was a very intense learning experience. It was particularly exciting to give, take and share with a community of like-minded founders who want to improve mobility in its broadest sense. For us, it was a chance to meet people we normally wouldn’t meet and openly discuss any topic to a very deep level.
Ángel Batalla, Last Mile Team CEO
Their solutions are currently in TRL 7, being applied in the Horizon 2020 funded LEAD project that will create Digital Twins of urban logistics networks in six European cities, to test and represent different innovative solutions for city logistics, to address the requirements of the on-demand economy while aligning competing interests and creating value for all different stakeholders.
