FUTURY, together with one of the automotive industry pioneers – SEAT – invites you to develop a solution for a more sustainable future of urban mobility.
SEAT has already developed various new products and services for micro-mobility and wants to take the e-revolution to the next level by focusing on urban mobility.
For example, their already existing fleet of modern and electric urban vehicles, like the SEAT Mó, is the perfect starting point for introducing new ways of mobility.
Together with FUTURY, we are looking for the best
entrepreneurial talents to help us design and create new customer journeys for urban mobility.
Join us and turn YOUR IDEAS into reality.
– Giuseppe Fiordispina, SEAT, Marketing Director
During the Mission V, you and your team are encouraged to come up with new models of customer journeys that redefine urban mobility along with the following fields to make it more customer-friendly and sustainable.
The Mission V poses a question to all participants: how can we shape the future of urban mobility by developing new journeys for consumers, business and logistics?
The Mission is a series of 12 innovation projects aiming to bring sustainability into different fields of the industry. FUTURY connects market leaders of each industry with young talents ready and willing to challenge the status quo.
Develop new journeys for consumers, businesses and logistics
During the project, you can choose one journey – B2C, B2B or Logistics – where you can identify a problem and then offer a viable solution that would make the lives of the commuters easier.
1. B2C Mobility Journey
How can we transform the mobility of people for all kind of reasons (Work, Leisure, Duties, etc.)?
- Tackling the desires and needs of the mass market of private customers
- Journeys and experiences from departure to arrival should be optimized and simplified
- An integrated journey including all forms of mobility
2. B2B Mobility Journey
Is there a way for the mobility addressing special needs and requirements of businesses to be more green?
- New commuting solutions for employees
- Corporate Mobility Management as integrated solutions
- Location-specific solutions tailored to the corporates’ needs
3. Logistics Journey
Can you think of a more sustainable way for the transportation of goods (e.g. parcels) from production/storage to the end-customer?
- Time and locations specific delivery for the last mile
- The linkage between logistic hubs and end-points (recipient)
- New means of transportation, e.g. robots, drones, etc.
How does the project work?
20 selected candidates will join the 3-month incubation program and work on innovative solutions along with 10+ companies in the urban mobility sector.
You will be teamed up with 4 other talented individuals. Together, you will work on your own innovative solution, making the urban mobility sector more sustainable.
The project’s goal is to create innovative solutions really disrupting the micro-mobility sector.
FUTURY and the project partners offer support, expertise, and everything else you need to succeed
The purpose of the Mission is to develop outcomes that continue to exist beyond the project. Perhaps this could be your entry into the startup world?
