Ride-hailing platform Karhoo was selected as one of the Gold Prize winners for the European Startup Prize for mobility in a ceremony at the European Parliament in Brussels.
Other Gold Prize winners are: Geovelo for its software platform for cyclists, Shotl (mobility platform for public transport operators), Twaice (predictive battery analytics software) and Einride (all-electric autonomous vehicle services).
Karhoo was chosen among the 50 finalists by a jury of mobility influencers and thought leaders as the breakthrough innovation with the most potential to shape the mobility landscape in Europe and around the world.
The jury judged the finalists on several metrics including the strength of their management team, their social impact, level of innovation and speed of execution.
Karhoo brings together regulated, licensed taxi and private hire vehicle fleets from around the world in the form of an electronic platform which can integrate with other travel and leisure operators’ platforms and apps.
The Gold Prize winners will now receive mentoring from multinational management consulting firm Boston Consulting Group and will also be invited to pitch at Europe’s major technology events.
