Who can apply to GROW Mobility?

We're looking for innovative startups with a dedicated team and an MVP in place.

If you think global and have a scalable solution in the areas of usage patterns, customer behavior and company information with strong products and services in ETC, GNSS, telematics, big data, RUC, and mobility - apply!

My startup is not in the mobility industry - can I still apply?

Of course!

Any innovative technology or solution which can be applied to Road Infrastructure, Tolling & Telematics or New Mobility is welcome to apply for the program.

Can I apply to more than one area?

You are welcome to apply for more than one area. Just make sure to submit a separate application for each.

What are GROW Mobility's key benefits for my startup?

There are many reasons why you should apply for GROW Mobility:

• possibility to work on a Pilot Project within Brisa’s Group Ecosystem
• full access to the entire spectrum of Brisa's market (8+ million clients, 1.600+ km of road infrastructure, and more)
• a sandbox for field tests
• the opportunity to work with a strong market leader and pioneer in electronic toll collection
• office space at Brisa's Campus in Portugal
• access to a broad mentor network

What do I need to know about the Pilot Project?

For the winning team(s), Brisa will offer the possibility to build a pilot with the startup product or service within Brisa’s Group Ecosystem, combining the startup capabilities with the resources and market reach of Brisa.

For the duration of the Pilot, all the time needed to be worked on location (Brisa HQ, Portugal), Brisa will support travel expenses and accommodation for all the necessary elements of the team who are working directly on the project.

In addition, the project cost will also be supported by Brisa. Although we expect that during the pilot the startup takes some risk and does not put any margin on the services/product.

What else do I need to know?

Entrants must own, at the time of application and throughout the accelerator program, the rights to deploy any idea, solution, technology, product and/or service which they put forward in connection with their entry to GROW Mobility.
