Mobility is very important for the average consumer and as technology evolves there are more connected and shared options than ever before. From electric scooter sharing platforms to airplane taxi cabs, these advances are changing how consumers in Europe move around. These ten mobility startups are among those trying to shift and change that landscape.
Blickfeld – Blickfeld was founded in 2017 to give autonomous vehicles eyes, enabling it to see and understand the world. Originating at the Technical University of Munich, Blickfeld developed proprietary technology based on patented silicon MEMS mirrors as well as off-the-shelf optical and signal processing components. The company’s first product, Cube, is designed for autonomous navigation, HD mapping and other LiDAR applications in the automotive sector. The startup also won the Autonomous Traffic & Logistics Innovation Award in 2018.
Cargoroo – Awarded with the prestigious European Startup Prize for Mobility in 2019, Cargoroo is a smart electric neighborhood cargo bike that can be used by families and small businesses, available at fixed locations in urban districts and rented by the hour. Dubbed as the Uber of electric cargo bikes, Cargoroo provides a fun, healthy, sustainable and fast alternative to car ownership and city logistics. The Dutch start-up is currently looking into expanding its reach to both national and international cities.
Circ – Formerly known as Flash, Circ is the new Berlin-based electric scooter sharing startup founded in 2018 by Delivery Hero Founder Lukasz Gadowski. The startup reached the milestone of one million trips in just 132 days of operations and popular as it is, it received a Series A funding of €55 million euros in January 2019 to build a cleaner, safer, and better-connected world. So far it has since expanded to 9 countries and counting.
Dott – This Amsterdam-based startup is offering dockless, shared electrical scooters. What sets Dott apart from other competitors are its 10” wheels for reliable road grip, wider decks for the optimized center of gravity, double brake system for safety, a speed cap at 20km/h, and a longer charging autonomy. The company’s first e-scooters will be launched in a pilot at STATION F, the world’s biggest startup campus, in 2019.
