| June 12, 2015

INDIA BASED ENTERPRISES, BIG BUSINESS AND CITY/STATE GOVERNMENT AGENCIES

Inaugurated in Brazil in 2012 (at Rio + 20), the Mobi Prize then went to Detroit, Michigan, USA in 2014 for the ITS World Congress. It is now heading to India! Related to this we have created Mobi-x India dedicated to celebrating and supporting Indian innovators and catalyzers.

A new initiative of the Institute for Competitiveness, India, in partnership with SMART’s global MobiPrize and Platform at the University of Michigan, it enables exchange and support on transportation innovation both to contribute towards enhancing the quality of life in Indian cities, and to advance new business models and economic opportunity. Mobi-x India is a key nexus of Mobi Global.
