Phnom Penh, 6 December – Up to twenty new ventures and startups presented their ideas at Urban Mobility Showcase, an event gathering innovators from the transportation sector all across Cambodia.
The fair, organized by Energy Lab together with Grab, UNDP and Ministry of Transport and Public Work, was aimed at sharing knowledge on transforming urban mobility to make Cambodia’s transport solutions safer, greener and more inclusive.
The key event was the Urban Mobility Incubator final pitch, where three out of five start-ups stood the chance to win $5,000, pitching in front of a panel of expert judges after six months of preparations.
The three winning startups were Agile Development Group, a group that has been active for several years in the disability and mobility sector, planning to launch a wheelchair accessible and solar-powered tuk-tuks, Voltra, a Cambodian brand specialising in two-wheel electric vehicles in Phnom Penh, and LUMAsystems, an AI-driven technology that monitors driving behaviour, encouraging safer driving habits.
During the showcase, visitors could also enjoy interactive exhibitions featuring companies with smart mobility ideas such as Thada E Bike, a purely electronically-fuelled bike and public talks across four areas, health, efficiency, safety and accessibility mobility.
Mobility that can be smart and sustainable plays a big role in addressing global and national issues such as climate change, public health, and safety.
