FIA Region I Start-Up Challenge - 2nd Edition
Calling all startups in cars, mobility & wider assistance! Apply for the FIA Region I’s Start-up challenge. Applications close on 28th February 2021
After a successful first edition, the FIA Region I is happy to once again offer startups an opportunity to connect with its network of 103 mobility Clubs.
What’s in it for you?
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, startups may get a chance to test their ideas, get valid feedback, and possibly penetrate large markets in partnership with Clubs.
Can I apply?
CARS: How can mobility Clubs improve and innovate the use of cars in the future? The car has been at the centre of mobility Clubs’ business for many years. As the use of the car as well as its features evolve steadily, mobility Clubs are looking for new ways of being at the driver’s side. In this category startups are welcome to submit ideas such as in the fields of: connected cars, ownership models, road safety, electric-mobility and the environmental impact of cars, etc.
ASSISTANCE: How can mobility Clubs make people’s lives easier outside of their cars? Mobility Clubs can offer a wide range of assistance services to their members beyond mobility. This may include services inside peoples’ homes (e.g. breakdown repairs / security / connected homes) or any personal assistance service (e.g. e-commerce, administrative tasks). How can Clubs support people everywhere, not only when their car breaks down? How can they help people enjoy healthier and happier lifestyles? In the assistance category, startups can submit ideas under topics like: home assistance, health, personal assistance, etc.
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).
