For its second edition, Movin’On, the world summit on sustainable mobility, has announced the launch of a global Startup Challenge. Movin’On is presented by Michelin with C2 as organizing partner. From May 30 to June 1, in Montréal, 50 of today’s brightest startups will come together to showcase their technologies and impact the future of sustainable mobility.
To compete in this high-stakes, global competition, startups must meet the following criteria:
- Be an early stage (with first turnover) or a venture business
- Work in the field of sustainable mobility
- Be a true game changer with a proven business model
- Be ready to showcase tangible technologies and actionable solutions
Startups who wish to compete must first register on the online platform Movin’On Startup Challenge, which is now open and will close on April 25. A carefully selected jury will then evaluate the projects submitted and select a maximum of 50 contestants who will move to the next round. The selected contestants will be invited to attend the 2018 edition of Movin’On for free. This invitation includes a pass to access the event, a booth in the startup village, round-trip flight tickets and three-day accommodations in Montréal.
Second, among the lucky 50, the Startup Village Team will select 15 startups that will pitch their ground-breaking technologies to an audience of top decision-makers. Two grand-prize winners will be granted access to one of the main stages at Movin’On, the Cabaret.
The competing startups must demonstrate that they are true game changers, impacting any one of the following six industry’s hot topics:
- Decarbonization and air quality
- The new multimodal society
- Technologies to accelerate implementation
- Working together
- Circular economy
- Moonshots in mobility
