After a successful first edition FIA Region I is happy to offer again start-ups an opportunity to connect with its network of 103 mobility Clubs.
Start-ups with innovative ideas on car-related services, mobility, or wider assistance services – such as home, health, lifestyle, or personal assistance – are invited to rise up to the challenge. Selected start-ups will have multiple opportunities to connect with the FIA Region I network, which via its mobility Clubs represents over 36 million consumers in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
Mobility Clubs are trustworthy brands and have a strong membership base, built over the years thanks to a wide range of services. They are constantly looking for new ways to assist members in their daily lives. By connecting with Clubs, start-ups may get a chance to test their ideas, get valid feedback, and possibly penetrate large markets in partnership with Clubs.
Laurianne Krid, Director General at FIA Region I said “Innovating and anticipating consumer needs are key components of our mobility Clubs’ business models. Clubs are increasingly seen by the public as mobility providers and seeking opportunities to better serve their millions of members. By participating in the challenge start-ups will not only gain visibility but most importantly find qualified partners to test and possibly launch their ideas”.
Entrants need to have at least a proof of concept or a minimum viable product, and have a full-time CEO and CTO or equivalent (i.e. a ‘business’ person and a ‘technology’ person). Throughout 2021 they will benefit from numerous opportunities to pitch their ideas to FIA Region I’s mobility Club experts, business development staff and decision-makers.
We are looking forward to your ideas!
