GoWithFlow wins best ‘Clean Technologies Startup and 4.0 Industry’ award 2020
GoWithFlow, the Portuguese startup that created the first Sustainable Mobility Management solution has won the awards for the best ‘Clean Technologies Startup and Industry 4.0’ in 2020 from startups accelerator BGI and EIT Digital.
The award was handed out at the Scaleup Portugal Gala, in a totally online event which recognised the most promising scale-ups when an elite group of national startups competed in categories such as CIT, Health, Consumer, Web and Sustainability and at which the innovations that most stood out during the year were recognised.
GoWithFlow won the award for the best Portuguese startup in the ‘CleanTech and Industry 4.0’ category for its Sustainable Mobility Management Solution (SMM), which plans, manages and maximises the entire transport ecosystem within an organisation — from deciding the best approach to electrifying a fleet (of vehicles) the management of a multimode group of traditional, hybrid and electric vehicles, to enhancing all aspects of energy recharging infrastructure for electric vehicles.
Through company holistic management as part of a technology solution, those companies that implement the SMM Flow solution reduce greenhouse gases, save money on transport costs and create options for their staff regarding the way in which they get to work.
“In our first year as a commercial company, Flow clients have eliminated more than 5,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide and have saved an average of €225 per electric vehicle,” says Jane Hoffer, CEO of Flow.
“Being chosen as the best CleanTech and Industry 4.0 startup is an incredible recognition that our vision and hard work is being understood as transformative and that is exactly why we are working — to change the way people and companies move.”
The technology of GoWithFlow was born in 2010, when CEiiA (Portugal’s Center of Engineering and Product Development) participated in the MOBI.E municipal mobility program.
Formed officially as Flow in late 2019, when Portuguese energy giant Galp acquired a majority stake, the company today manages thousands of vehicles, EV charging stations and consumer end users across multiple software and services implementations in corporations and communities around the world.
