Among the many innovative projects and ideas, the jury of Future Mobility Awards 2020 determined the five most innovative start-ups and projects. Although the final round was initially set up for three finalists, the amount of applications and great ideas made it impossible to narrow it down to three.

And the finalists are…

A diffuclt choice had to be made. After reviewing all the submitted material the jury reached a decision. These five start-ups made it to the final round:

  • BeeSonix UG
  • Match Rider UG
  • Operibus Sp. Z. o.o.
  • Rydies GmbH
  • TWAICE Technologies GmbH

Get to know more about them down below on this page!

Digital start-up pitch

Challenging times demand creative solutions. The start-up pitches were originally planned to take place as a part of the IT-TRANS 2020. Due to Covid-19 the IT-TRANS was postponed and will now take place on 1-3 December 2020. However the initiators of the award have decided to move up the start-up pitch, in order to support the finalists of the award and shine some well deserved spotlight. Therefore the finalists held their pitches in form of a video. Each start-up created a unique video with a short introduction of themselves and a description of what their project is about.

Digital award ceremony

The award ceremony will likewise be held as on the web. Stay tuned to find out, which project will make the run and be honored as a  “Future Mobility” awardee.
