Toyota Motor Europe (TME) and Business school ISDI, through ISDI Accelerator, have created the Toyota Startup Awards. This competition targets inclusive mobility companies that offer innovative solutions empowering people with mobility disabilities to move around more freely and facilitating their daily life.

Eight startups will be invited to attend 4YFN in Barcelona from 24 to 26 February 2020 to exhibit their products or services in the Toyota stand and participate in a pitch competition in front of a specialised panel of jurors selected by TME. The winners will be awarded a fast track to the Toyota Accelerator Program.

Interested startups can apply between December 20 and January 26. One of the main criteria is that applicants must focus on the following three fields:

  • Socially inclusive mobility: Mobility solutions that are created to meet the unfulfilled mobility needs of people with a mobility disability, elderly and children, as well as people living in suburban areas.
  • Accessibility: Provide innovative approaches that increase the accessibility to mobility solutions and thereby enable a “Mobility for All” future.
  • Disruptive Mobility: Development of new products, services, tools, technologies and / or disruptive business models that can contribute to a “Mobility for All” future.

The winners of the Toyota Startup Awards will be announced by Toyota on the main stage of 4YFN on 25 February 2020.
