Our Response to The Climate Emergency

Transportation accounts for half of Quebec’s greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, and it is clear that the situation has evolved alarmingly since 1990. Therefore, it is imperative to target mobility with a lower carbon footprint that will allow us to support the initiatives developed to pool our efforts so that, collectively, we can accelerate and achieve a green, prosperous and united recovery.

The MOBIS Accelerator is in line with the vision of enabling change in sustainable mobility in Quebec, particularly through a territorial, flexible approach based on social innovation.

You wish to create, optimize or develop solutions to sustainable mobility problems? We are available to fine-tune your approach and give you the necessary momentum to reach your target and put social innovation in motion.

Support Plan

Take It to The Next Level!

When it comes to acceleration, knowing how to surround yourself with the right people is essential. You can count on our extensive expertise and our network of experts to support you in reaching your next level of development.

In symbiosis with your development phase, our support is divided into three programs based on a personalised approach.

  1. Transmission

    Sharing experimentation and refining the value proposition

    Sharing experimentation and knowledge is a factor that should not be overlooked in order to avoid the pitfalls associated with a lack of understanding of mobility issues. An accurate reading of the ecosystem encourages the implementation of solutions that adequately meet the needs of our communities. The MOBIS accelerator acts in line with the development and adoption of responsible solutions which have an impact on the fight against climate change.

Which projects can benefit from MOBIS acceleration services?

We accelerate the deployment of innovative projects that provide solutions to the challenges of sustainable mobility by addressing the issues raised by cities and our territorial partners in Quebec. Your solution must address one of these issues:

  • Active mobility
  • Shared and collective mobility
  • Universal mobility
  • Logistics and freight mobility
  • Energy efficiency and electrification
  • Intelligent mobility and mobility data
  • Urban development

To meet the requirements, your solution must meet certain standards:

  • Answer both a mobility problem while significantly contributing to GHG reduction;
  • Have a level of maturity (TRL between 4 and 7) so that a pilot project can be put forward within a short time frame (>6 months);
  • Align with a deployment vision for your solution/technology within the Quebec territory. However, your offices may be located outside this territory without compromising your admissibility.

How long de acceleration programs last?

Time is an essential resource for all good entrepreneurs and the complexity of your development curve requires putting the right efforts in the right places. We build a customized support plan according to your time, energy and resource constraints, in direct adequacy with the resources you can dedicate to the project and the achievement of your next level of maturity.

Thus, we can be at your side from a few weeks to several months depending on what we can bring to your project.

How much does it cost to benefit from MOBIS support?

MOBIS is fully aware that starting a business is full of obstacles and that you need to know how to optimize your time, funds and energy if you want to be able to ride the momentum of your first sales. That’s why the current programs are free of charge and accessible at all times, thanks in particular to the support of the ministère de l’Économie et de l’Innovation du Québec, the City of Montreal and our other partners.
