AWS launches sustainable mobility accelerator for startups

AWS lightbulb

Amazon Web Services (AWS) has launched its Sustainable Cities Accelerator to support startups building mobility and transportation solutions to increase the sustainability of fast-growing urban centres.

The Accelerator, launching in collaboration with Freshwater Advisors and Public Spend Forum, is looking for mature clean-tech startups from around the world that are working on micro-mobility, last-mile delivery, urban parking and route optimization, electric vehicle charging infrastructure and applications, Internet of Things (IoT) transportation and traffic optimization, or other solutions to promote sustainable transportation and mobility in urban settings. 

The goal is to help these startups learn how to innovate and accelerate their growth through advanced cloud-based technologies.

This is the second sustainability-focused accelerator program, with last year’s AWS Clean Energy Accelerator resulting in multiple commercial pilot deployments for participating startups.

 James Larson, chief executive of energy storage start-up E-Zinc, said: “The AWS Clean Energy Accelerator was a comprehensive program that educated me on all aspects of our business—go-to-market strategy, policy and regulation, funding resources and much more.”

Applications for the Accelerator open on 9 May and the deadline closes a month later on 9 June.

The programme runs between 28 June and 30 July, before a demo day on 23 September.
