MaaS Global, the world’s first true Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) operator, has been chosen as one of the winners of the prestigious Future Unicorn Award. Presented at a gala ceremony in Brussels alongside the Masters of Digital event, the Future Unicorn Award celebrates the best SMEs across Europe that have the potential to become the future European tech giants.
Whim, the all-inclusive application pioneered by MaaS Global which is live in cities such as Helsinki, Birmingham and Antwerp, was selected as one of the winners among 16 nominees from all over Europe.
The Masters of Digital network of trade associations covers 30 countries in Europe and beyond, representing more than 35,000 businesses. Winners have to demonstrate successful digitalisation of their business processes and offering innovative digital products and services.
“We are very excited and privileged to be among the winners of the Future Unicorn Award,“ MaaS Global CEO Sampo Hietanen comments. “With close to 3.5 million trips made since its launch in December 2017, we look forward to introducing the world’s first true Mobility as a Service concept globally, with 12 new cities in Asia, Europe and the USA being launched this year.
“The Smart Cities of the future need more Maas Global-like applications to attract and reward citizens towards a new mobility-experience!“, commented Bart Meert from the Future Unicorn jury.
“Multimodal Mobility as a Service could one of the magic words to solve our mobility bottlenecks.”
