Boosting start-ups and SMEs for smart urban mobility: linking accelerators and cities – 22 May 2015, Berlin

CIVITAS Initiative

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
