Drive Program for Smart Mobility Companies


Smart mobility companies can now join a unique market entry program for The Netherlands. With a very practical and result-oriented approach, the DRIVE Program helps companies to take the first successful steps in the Dutch market. Companies are eligible for the program if they have a proven solution in the areas of mobility, transportation, or related domains.

The program consists of two stages. The first stage is about gaining in-depth knowledge of the Dutch market. This stage ends with active networking during the Smart City Expo World Congress in Barcelona in November. The second stage works towards a pitch event with possible clients. Participants get extensive individual support in their preparations. 

The DRIVE Program is developed by a consortium of public and private organizations, including the Regional Development Agency Utrecht Region, Primevest Capital Partners, WeCity and Branch Unlimited. The consortium aims to promote the dissemination and adoption of sustainable solutions for cities, by supporting proven innovations to seamlessly access the Dutch markets.

The first part of the program consists of online sessions, starting on 20 October, and ending with live meetings at the Smart City Expo. The deadline for registration is 30 September. More information about the program can be found here.
