UrmO’s fundraising round through Kickstarter has landed the company 194,000 EUR in pre-orders. It has also sealed deals with undisclosed distribution partners across Germany. These early successes seem to be paving a smooth road for the mobility startup, who plans to distribute the pre-ordered vehicles in the coming months.
Notably, the smart mobility startup made news several times this year for its implementation in emergency rescue services. Amazingly, police in the UK used the app to locate people who were lost in the woods.
In 2019 the company has reached 3 million trips on the platform and also received the future unicorn award from Digital Europe. Its unique approach to mobility packaging steps toward a vision for diversified transportation.
The company was a recipient of the 2019 EU Startup mobility prize. Earlier in 2019, the company launched a pilot with its customer partner DB Schenker, meaning that they are close to industry adoption.
