Five of the world’s biggest automotive brands, BMW, Jaguar Land Rover, Bosch, Ford and Toyota, have partnered with SMMT and CW to challenge ambitious start-ups and SMEs to devise innovative solutions to seven key mobility challenges. Technology innovators are encouraged to submit leading-edge ideas that address these challenges.
Are you a start-up or an SME with cutting-edge solutions to some of the problems that impede the seamless and efficient movement of people and goods? Do you have innovative ideas that can help us redefine the future of mobility and the automotive industry?
If you believe you have positive answers to the above questions you have come to the right place. The Future Mobility Challenge is a new initiative from SMMT to make innovative ideas and solutions discoverable with a view to creating new partnerships, investments and acquisitions between the world’s leading automotive brands and innovative technology start-ups and SMEs.
The seven challenges are:
- Harnessing the potential of mobility data
- Intelligent solutions for intelligent fleets
- Urban mobility solutions for future cities
- Innovative shared and on-demand mobility models
- Creating new and superior customer experiences in the age of hyperconvenience
- New connected car services
- Future vehicle technologies
Those with the best solutions will be invited to pitch at the Future Mobility Challenge event in October and, if successful, will be able to negotiate a range of partnership propositions, from mentoring, ideas incubation and investment, to piloting, routes to market or acquisition.
