European startup prize press release
Slovak e-mobility firm Voltia one of top 10 mobility startups in Europe
Bratislava - Slovak electric mobility firm Voltia was recently announced as one of the top 10 mobility startups in Europe by the European Startup Prize. Voltia was the only firm in Central and Eastern Europe to make the top 10 list and will be a part of the 2018 European Startup Prize tour, presenting its e-mobility approach and innovations at conferences all around Europe to help companies make the switch to electric and inspire other entrepreneurs to develop their own solutions.
Voltia was selected by a distinguished panel out of a competitive pool of 500 applications from throughout Europe. Voltia advanced through the semifinal round and participated in a final event in Brussels last week, along with leading European transportation officials Commissioner Violeta Bulc and Member of the European Parliament Karema Delli. Voltia is an e-mobility solutions provider which helps companies switch their light commercial vehicle fleets to electric – now.
It offers customized roadmaps for companies looking to switch all or parts of their fleet to electric and custom made electric vehicles to address gaps in the last mile urban delivery market. Its latest tool – EVXpert – provides a single website where, for free, people can find the electric LCV most appropriate for their business needs. Voltia can also provide more in-depth services for customers interested in doing further analysis.
While in Brussels, Voltia co-founder Juraj Ulehla was also invited to represent the cleantech startup community in a live, televised discussion with European Commission Vice President Maros Sefcovic, head of the Energy Union. The wide-ranging discussion led to a number of good ideas that VP Sefcovic used in his opening remarks at the EU Clean Energy Industrial Forum the next day. Slovakia is well known as the largest per-capita producers of automobiles in the world, however it also has a thriving and increasingly well known set of e-mobility firms in Voltia and its sister company GreenWay.
