WHITE VEST &
Accelerator to build Zebra-Startups for a system change in mobility.
IMAGINE THE WORLD IN 2030
...and your startup has played an essential role in achieving the United Nations global goals for social, economic and environmental sustainability.
The Imagine2030 Mobility Accelerator will get you there! We support you to execute on your idea as you enable a system change for sustainable mobility.
The world is becoming increasingly urbanized. In 2030 more than 60% of the people will live in cities. Cities that account for 70% of global carbon emissions and over 60% of resource use.
A majority of carbon emissions are affected by urban mobility, which also causes noise and congestion in our urban lives.
This calls for a substantial change and we support your changemaking solution for sustainable mobility.
The Imagine2030 Mobility Accelerator for sustainable mobility has been created to answer this challenge. Learn more about sustainable cities and communities here.
Now it's your turn. How will you meet this challenge and be a part of the solution? As a part of our accelerator you will have the opportunity to...
Develop solutions to drive a system change for sustainable mobility
Create technologies to increase efficiency, transportation infrastructure and traffic management, and renewal fuels
Drive innovation for alternative technologies
...and all the other groundbreaking ideas we haven't thought of yet!
