EIT InnoEnergy: Success for start-up pamyra
EIT InnoEnergy's German start-up pamyra managed to prevail over 600 participants at the “Investor Days Thüringen 2017”.
Pamyra also recently won the main prize of the Foundation for Technology, Innovation and Research Thüringen (STIFT) and Investment management Ltd. Thüringen (bm|t).
By creating a website for logistics that works like “booking.com”, they convinced the jury. Pamyra created a platform which forges a link between forwarding agencies, which have idle space on their vehicles, with private and commercial consigners, which can book the space for attractive prices.
According to Pamyra’s website, '400,000 trucks and transporters are driving through Germany daily. More than half of them are not fully loaded. For us, the Sharing Economy means using free shipping space for your carriage.'
They not only impressed EIT InnoEnergy, but they also managed to convince everyone present at the Investor Days of their great ecological concept, and truly deserved the main prize.
