As part of their journey on BlockStart’s 2nd Acceleration Programme, as an SME adopter, they were looking for new opportunities for collaboration with technology providers of DLT/blockchain solutions that could improve their business. This is the testimonial of their experience in our programme.
In one paragraph, what is Volvero?
Volvero is an app for sharing vehicles that connects owners with people who need one, saving time and money. Through AI and advanced technologies, we improve quality and security with crystal-clear full insurance coverage. Volvero is easier, safer and more reliable than any other app.
What is Volvero passionate about achieving?
Volvero empowers a society with mobility needs to have a better alternative to current transportation solutions. Our app addresses a range of social issues such as inequality, lack of security, driving behaviour, obstacles to access to transportation. On the other hand, there is a relevant problem for owners: they possess vehicles that are not used for 96% of the time, occupying areas in the cities and producing pollution, while owners still have to cover the vehicle costs.
Can you tell us why you have decided to apply to BlockStart’s 2nd Call for end-user SMEs?
To test innovative technologies in a protected scenario.
What major challenges have you faced during the implementation/testing of BlockStart’s blockchain-based solution?
No enough monetary resources for hiring the engineers and specialists we needed.
What kind of impact do you think the blockchain-based solution you have implemented in the scope of BlockStart may bring to your company?
Volvero improves communities by addressing a range of social issues such as inequality, lack of security, driving behaviour, obstacles to access to transportation. Our app reduces inequality between social layers providing the possibility of mobility to those who do not own a vehicle, eliminating the concept of being underprivileged if not owning one. Likewise, women and young people that feel threatened and in the absence of transportation alternatives, give up and stay at home, can now socialize, access healthcare, educational establishments, cultural sites which all contribute to the wellbeing of the society. We promote inclusivity and are closing the social gap. Moreover, owners of the vehicles, including local SMEs are optimizing their vehicles’ costs and business model that leads to the economic upturn. Finally, Volvero aims at enhancing security on the roads by using data analytics that improves driving behaviour to reduce the number of cases of misbehaviour on the road.
Where do you see your company in 5 years?
A global player with its service running in more than 20 countries.
