Connected Places Catapult SME Development Director Alex Weedon said: 'We are excited to welcome such a diverse group of exciting businesses to the IM Accelerator. We had a large number of quality applications which allowed our judges to select a group which really represents the scope and ambition of the thriving SME and start-up community currently working on mobility in the UK.
'We’re aiming to replicate the success that many of the SMEs that have already taken part on the accelerator have experienced, and we have a fantastic group of world-leading partners who will help us realise this.'
Bruno Moraes, Country Manager at Wayra UK, said: 'This programme is the first in the UK to cover all fields related to Intelligent Mobility, supporting data-driven solutions for the most crucial transport problems that we face. More than 150 start-ups and scale-ups applied to join the programme. From many different countries, those companies bring some of the most innovative solutions in the mobility space.
The success of this programme would not be possible without our world-class partners. We’re very pleased to continue these partnerships with the launch of Cohort Four and we also look forward to developing business opportunities between Telefónica, our partners and the start-ups joining us now.'
