CoMotion Innovators are automatically nominated as applicants to our annual startup challenges. No additional application is required. A jury of experts comprised of private and public industry leaders and investors will select the finalists for each event.

The criteria for the selection process will be based on the themes for each event and the needs of the local mobility ecosystems. Business model, social impact, and environmental benefits are some of the qualifiers that the jury will consider in their selection process. A CoMotion Innovator can potentially be selected for more than one challenge.
