ATOM Mobility Hub Venture-Building Program Selects 12 Promising Teams
Back in August, together with innovation management company Helve, we launched the open call for ATOM Mobility Lab, a FREE venture-building / accelerator program helping ambitious entrepreneurs to build mobility companies from ZERO in just 9 weeks. Along with October, comes the beginning of our 9-week program. Out of more than 100 applications, we have selected 12 teams from 11 countries developing various shared mobility, ride-hailing, and on-demand services. It’s about time you meet them!
The utilitarian approach to shared mobility.
Aver Mobility is a car sharing company that’s involved in solving urban mobility challenges. Their mission is widening the adoption of shared mobility with greener means of transportation in Eastern Europe without requiring anyone to step out of their cars. As we all know the personal car is an irreplaceable limb for the average Eastern European. Aver Mobility knows that they couldn’t influence that. They don’t want to do so, either. They want to step on that assumption but make it greener. The company will launch with a 100% EV fleet in Sofia (Bulgaria) and plans on replicating the same utilitarian approach while exporting the operational model in the rest of Eastern Europe.

They’re carving out a new car rental market by solving congestion, long lines and waiting at airports, and serving guests when all rental locations close, disrupting over-the-counter desks with technology.
