Are you a start-up accelerator with an interest into Smart Urban Mobility? Are you a company that is sponsoring accelerators to create the champions of tomorrow? Are you a start-up? Are you a city that is active in creating an innovation-friendly business environment?
Smart urban mobility is a field of dynamic entrepreneurship. It provides substantial potential for start-ups to grow their business. While the opportunities are great, considerable challenges remain for making all the steps towards successful growth.
The European Commission organises a conference on 22 May 2015 in Berlin during the 2015 Metropolitan Solutions Fair. It invites representatives from start-up accelerators, large companies, SMEs and start-ups, innovation agencies and city halls to discuss the following topics through panel and break-out discussions:
How to best accelerate start-ups: what lessons have we learnt?
Opportunities for collaboration between accelerators: greater impact in Europe?
How to improve the business environment in cities? What kind of support is needed?
What is the value added of action at a European level?
Better collaboration between innovators, accelerators and policy-makers will help lift the EU SME economy in this important sector of urban mobility and transport.
Keynote speakers include:
Andreja Kodrin, Member of the Cabinet of Commissioner Violeta Bulc
Robin Chase, founder of Zipcar and Buzzcar
Alex Farcet, co-founder Startupbootcamp
Gert Blom, City of Helmond
