techUK has a longstanding relationship with the SMMT, and as a result, is proud to announce its support for the SMMT Future Mobility Challenge. The Challenge is an opportunity for our start-up and SME Members to grow their business by pitching cutting-edge solutions to problems that impede seamless and efficient movement of people and goods.
Five of the world's biggest automotive brands - BMW, Jaguar Land Rover, Bosch, Ford and Toyota - have partnered with SMMT to challenge start-ups and SMEs to devise innovative solutions to seven key mobility challenges. To participate, start-ups and SMEs are encouraged to submit their interest to pitch solutions addressing one or more of the challenges.
Applicants with the best solutions will be invited to pitch at the Future Mobility Challenge event on Wednesday 17 October in London. If successful, this will create partnerships, investments, mentoring, ideas incubators, routes to market and acquisitions between the world's leading automotive brands and innovative technology start-ups and SMEs.
