Wednesday 26 October 2016 | 11:07 CET | News
Austrian operator A1 and the Chamber of Commerce in Vienna organised the second edition of the Innovation to Company challenge. The winner of this edition is goUrban, combining sustainable e-mobility and a mobile application. The business concept is based on rental of e-scooters, which need not be returned at a fixed place but anywhere within the operating area. The sharing concept is expected to reduce CO2 emissions, optimise usage of parking places and decrease the need of citizens to own vehicles.
