About Mobi 2012

MobiPrize was launched in 2012 to recognize enterprises that demonstrate innovative and replicable solutions to local and global transportation challenges. It was created by the University of Michigan SMART initiative with the generous support of the Rockefeller Foundation.

The award received impressive entries from all parts of the world showcasing a diverse range of innovations in the field of mobility. We are proud to introduce the two Judges Choice 2012 award winners Zambikes and Hangzhou Omnipay Co.Ltd. Our People’s choice Award 2012 went to Caronetas Caronas Inteligentes. Also visit the other enterprise submissions profiled in the MobiNet.

The Event

The three grand prize winners travelled to Rio De Janeiro to accept their award at Rio + 20 , The United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development. Rio + 20 is a 20-year follow-up to the historic 1992 United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) that was held in the same city, and a fitting occasion for the celebration of innovative social enterprise. The conference was organized by the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs. It was held from June 13-22. Our local partners represented the State of Rio.
