The Startup Award will be again among the highlights of Bus2Bus 2024 in Berlin. In the Startup Area, young international companies will present innovative concepts for the mobility industry and deliver pitches for the prize.

The trade show will provide a market overview with over 30 buses from various manufacturers as well as products and services from suppliers.

“Trade visitors can find out about the latest innovations not only from the programme, but in the show’s Startup Area as well – organizers stress -. Bus operators and manufacturers can benefit from the new ideas being presented and get together and possibly do business with some 20 young international companies. Startups can present their groundbreaking solutions to a wide audience and exchange views with each other”.

Vesputi was the winner in 2023, and this year the list features some new companies as well as some already known ones (such as The Routing Company and Widesense, both based in USA and quite active on an international level – the first has recently exceeded 1 million on-demand transport since its foundation). Featuring the list there is Symone, a French start-up based in Dijon that presented a peculiar project of a hydrogen-powered double-decker bus where cars can be loaded onto the roof.
