MARCH 5, 2020
Waymo, formerly Google's self-driving car project, announced that it raised $2.25 billion this week. Coincidentally, we're working on an extensive Mobility sector landscape, which you can preview below. But first, these industry landscapes & lists have recently been (co-)created on the platform:

👩‍💻 Zoom Video's valuation soared on Covid-19 news. This may well accelerate the underlying trend towards distributed teams.

🍷 We made a list of over 174 wine startups, from consumer marketplaces to agri-technologies tackling climate change and labour shortages.

💰 Over €5 billion in new European VC funds announced in 2020 so far, roughly double the amount from last year.

🛴 The rise of mobility platforms is only just beginning

Mobility startups have received twice more venture capital investment than the next consumer category, which is food tech. In the next few weeks, we will release a deep dive into consumer platforms, in partnership with Adevinta, SpeedInvest and Point Nine Capital.

Just some of the insights we will be covering through data include:

📉 Industry preparing for “peak car” which may be happening in the next five years, as ownership is substituted by platform services.

🚘 Average household still overwhelmingly spends on car ownership: fuel, purchase, maintenance. Mobility-as-a-service wave only just starting.

🏭 Congestion and carbon-emissions data show there's an urgent need for different mobility solutions, including public transport (hello again, Covid-19) and away from cars and ride-hailing.

⚖️ European regulation often is driven by political sentiment rather than by strategic objectives.

And much more. That's just the mobility section! The report also goes into housing, health, jobs and education. So stay tuned!
