[MaaS Alliance congratulates MaaS Global, a member of the MaaS Alliance, on this award.]
The European Startup Prize for Mobility is the largest European contest for startups that specialize in mobility that incorporates sustainable development. MaaS Global’s Whim mobility app was selected as one of the four winners from ten finalists and from almost 500 startups.
As a winner, MaaS Global will receive four months of consultation services from The Boston Consulting Group, Via ID, and other partners. These partners will help MaaS Global to expand their business elsewhere in Europe. In addition, the ten finalist startups will receive local visibility through a tour that visits five major capitals in Europe. During the tour, these startups will have a chance to meet potential clients, investors, and local partners.
“The award means a lot to us. We can’t make a transportation breakthrough like this alone, we must do it as a part of an ecosystem. To be appreciated like this by the ecosystem is a great and important thing. This is not only a win for MaaS Global and Whim, it’s a win for the whole ecosystem and every part of it,” muses MaaS Global’s managing director and founder Sampo Hietanen.
