The Moove Lab was born in 2017 from the alliance between the CNPA and Via ID, which have the common objectives of fostering open innovation through the mobility and transport sector and accelerating the development of the best startups
The CNPA - Conseil National des Professions de l'Automobile (National Council of Automotive Professions) is the leading professional association defending the interests of the automotive services and mobility companies in France: vehicle dealers and repairers, fuel and new energies distribution, car rental and all the services offered to the automotive industry.
The CNPA represents the 5th largest economic branch in France with 142,000 companies totaling 140 billion euros in revenues and 410,000 jobs. The CNPA is also the founder of the Alliance des Mobilités, the representation structure for mobility startups in France.
Created in 2010 by the European leader in vehicle maintenance Mobivia (Norauto, Midas, ATU...), Via ID is an investment fund and startup accelerator focused on new mobility and autotech. With offices in Lille, Paris, Berlin and Singapore, the Via ID team supports a portfolio of 25+ startups (Getaround, Heetch, Smoove, Swiftly, Trusk, Cyclofix, Gojek...).
Via ID is at the heart of the European mobility ecosystem. Co-founder of the Moove Lab, Via ID has also created with the European Parliament the European Startup Prize for Mobility, the largest mobility startup competition in Europe, as well as the Mobility Club, the think tank for mobility corporates (Faurecia, Engie, Total, Arval, SNCF, etc.).
