HELP US MAKE PEOPLE’S LIVES EASIER, EVERY DAY!

Do you have a solution in one of the three following areas?

MOBILITY
IN RURAL AREAS

How can we improve mobility in rural areas and bring new mobility solutions outside of cities?

Mobility for residents in rural areas greatly depends on car ownership, and innovative alternatives tend to focus on cities. It may be hard to bring innovation such as on-demand or peer-to-peer services to rural areas, but this remains an untapped market. People need to travel greater distances in rural areas, this can challenge the acceptance of electric vehicles or cause people who don’t have a car to be cut-off. How can Clubs bring the mobility transition to rural areas?

HOME AND PERSONAL
ASSISTANCE

How can Clubs make people’s lives easier also outside of their cars?

Many Clubs wish to offer a wide range of assistance services to their members – not only car related services. This may include services inside your home (e.g. breakdown repairs) or any personal assistance service (e.g. with daily purchases, or administrative tasks). How can Clubs help people on a daily basis, not only when their car breaks down?

HEALTH
AND ELDERLY

Old age brings unwanted barriers to our quality of life: loneliness, degrading health, lack of mobility. How can we fight these and make seniors ‘feel young again’!

Our societies face an unprecedented demographic change: people will live far longer lives. Products and services are needed to cater for the ‘new old’ that want to engage in more social, more enjoyable, and generally more meaningful lives. How can Clubs help people in this quest?

STAR
CATEGORY

This is an open category for any product or service that resonates with mobility Clubs’ identities.

Clubs are about making people’s lives easier, assisting them wherever and whenever they need, and making them feel part of a community. Many Clubs also want to accelerate their transition from traditional car breakdown assistance, towards a wider focus on mobility, and user-centeredness.
