An EU-founded private/public initiative
The European Startup Prize for mobility (EUSP) is an EU-founded acceleration and investment Programme for sustainable mobility startups. It was created in 2017 by Karima Delli, Chairwoman of the European Parliament’s Committee on Transport and Tourism, Boston Consulting Group and Via ID.
Established in collaboration with all major EU institutions (European Parliament, European Commission, European Investment Bank, EIT InnoEnergy, GSA, SESAR, Shift2Rail) and together with major mobility corporations and tech giants, this public-private initiative aims to support and scale up smart and sustainable mobility startups all across Europe.
Each year, > 600 startups apply to its Acceleration and Investment programme. The EUSP provides them with multiple investment opportunities as a “one-stop-shop” to EU funds (European Commission, European Investment Bank, EIT InnoEnergy) and private investors (Demo Day). In addition, the best startups benefit each year from a tailor-made mentoring from BCG, connections to EU organisations and visibility in front of EU decision makers.
