Spearheading Sustainable Mobility, MOVIN'ON Continues Virtually in 2020

48

Following the cancellation of Movin’On Summit 2020 in Montreal, the Movin’On teams have invented the Movin’On Digital Meetings which will be held June 3 – 4, 2020. The spotlight for this digital reconnection with all our stakeholders will be on: the ongoing durable mobility challenges tackled by Movin’On Communities of Interest, and the Grand Finale of the Movin’On Startup Challenge.

 

Working hard to advance its co-innovation projects, Movin'On continues to accelerate the development of its working groups (interest communities), which are fully committed to building concrete sustainable mobility solutions. Online meetings are therefore offered to summit participants on June 3 to report on some of the work in progress and launch new topics. Learn more: https://www.movinonconnect.com/.

 

Grab your keyboards: Ready! Vote! The Movin'On Startup Challenge final will take place online June 4, from 8 a.m. – 10 a.m., Eastern Daylight Time, in an entertaining interactive online format.

 

Despite the cancellation of the World Summit on Sustainable Mobility, which was to be held in Montreal, Movin'On continues to provide development opportunities for the startups in its ecosystem.

 

"The present crisis should not put a stop to our activities, quite the reverse, in fact. It is an unprecedented opportunity to highlight the expected shift towards more sustainable mobility," said Florent Menegaux, President of Movin'On. "By organizing an online grand final for its Startup Challenge and by supporting young start-ups able to offer new models of sustainable mobility, new business models and opportunities to do things differently, Movin'On is fully in line with the movement."

 

Organized by the Movin'On teams, the Michelin incubator and the Agorize platform, which specializes in organizing online challenges, it will be held online with a format that showcases interactivity.

Ten startups have been selected and will be invited to pitch live to a jury of experts in Movin'On's five categories (preserving resources, safer and more accessible mobility, etc.). Each presentation will last for no more than two minutes and will be followed by one question from the audience and one question from the jury. The jury and the audience will then be able to vote for their favourite start up. At the end, the five winners will benefit from tailor-made programs and support (skills sponsorship, incubation, acceleration, coaching, visibility and networking) to develop their innovation. The prizes are the result of the solidarity of Movin'On community members who have rallied to support this responsible ambitious project.

To take part, simply register online at  www.movinonconnect.com.
This exceptional final, hosted by Dan Sobovitz, a key figure in responsible digital entrepreneurship, is expected to bring together more than 1,000 participants, all curious and determined to contribute to the development of tomorrow's mobility mobility that is safer, more responsible and accessible to all.
