DIGITALEUROPE is proud to introduce MaaS Global, nominated by Technology Industries of Finland, among the selected SMEs to participate in the Future Unicorn Award. The Mobility-as-a-Service operator was established in 2015 and has since innovated the way we get around in the city with its Whim-app. The Whim-service has been downloaded almost 100.000 times.
About MaaS Global
MaaS Global is the world’s first true Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) operator with its award-winning Whim app, which provides users with all city transport services in one app. With close to three million trips made since its launch in December 2017, Whim is the first all-inclusive MaaS solution commercially available on the market. Whim allows users to journey where and when they want with public transport, taxis, rental cars, and many other options, all under a single monthly subscription. Whim has revolutionized users’ travel habits, in favour of circular modes.
Advice for policymakers
In order for MaaS to lead us to a sustainable future, we have to push for an open ecosystem. This means access for all and more specifically more sustainable choices for the consumers.
The Pan-European Future Unicorn Award aims to highlight innovative SMEs that have the potential to become Europe’s next unicorns. The award is compiled by asking all the national trade associations affiliated with DIGITALEUROPE to nominate a single SME from their country. This results in a truly pan-European selection of incredible digital companies from all sectors.
The award will be delivered at our flagship event, Masters of Digital, in Brussels on 21 February.
