The Spanish SME is looking for stakeholders concerned and encouraging sustainable and smart (eco)mobility, expecting to give support in one or more of these aspects: - Internal commercial support within their organizations to promote the service. - Technological support to improve the product. - Continuous feedback on the service. - Reports: errors, functionalities to add or remove. They are looking for Corporations and big companies for commercial agreements with technical assistance and universities and R&D institutions for technical and research cooperation.

Description

The combined influence of population growth, demographic change and changing urban form leads to increasing demand for travel in city centers, suburbs and between the two. Demand for improved intercity mobility is also growing, to create a faster and more direct connection between settlements. As demand rises, so too do concerns about transportation as one of the leading contributors to global greenhouse gas emissions, congestion, noise and poor air quality in cities. Due to increased population and demographic changes, there is an increased demand for travel both in and between cities and suburbs. Unfortunately, this growing demand is not met with the corresponding supply of physical transport it needs, resulting in overcrowding and congestion. The present Spanish SME aims to promote carpooling in cities through a mobile application. Starting in Spain, it aims to expand to more countries, allowing its citizens to save costs, improve the comfort of their journeys and help to reduce congestion and pollution in cities. This way, they can optimize every car's space by increasing the occupancy and then reduce significantly CO2 impact, traffic, and noise pollution. The Spanish SME is completely committed with the movement of shared-economy and takes real care of their employee’s quality of life. That is the reason why they describe themselves as a new Human Resource's solution that companies can use to increase their employee's pride in belonging, while they are being sustainable towards the environment. They want citizens to travel comfortable, fast and in a sustainable way. In order for that to happen, they need to count on institutions' involvement (public and private). Potential partners are entities that are looking for smart mobility solutions under technical cooperation, research cooperation or commercial agreement with technical assistance.

Advantages and innovations

The SME wants people to travel on other people's car FOR FREE, in those recurring routes/journeys to their jobs/study locations (and back home), due to big Corporations and Public Institutions involvement and collaboration. Some specific advantages of this service are: - Reduction of the emissions by 75%. - Valuation of tax benefits associated with the reduction of emissions. - Creative and social rewards not only focused on money but in the exchange of services among passenger and driver as described below: * Between 4000 and 8000 euros per month of cost savings for the companies that use this service under their Social Responsibility Politics. *For colleges, what they want is for the rewards to be more creative. University students the reward system is based on "services" such as "one hour of math class" or similar. *For leisure events, the rewards will be more oriented towards discounts for the event (free beverage for example).

How it works

  • Tell us about yourself

EEN help you find the right partner, rather than you going it alone.

Our role is to review and collate the most suitable submissions, and then send them to the client who posted the opportunity. We consult with you, and the client, to make the process professional and easy.

To stand the best chance of success, make your submission really sing. Sell why the client who posted the opportunity should work with you. Excite them. Ask questions. Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.
