Mobility startups now have access to more than $1 million in funding through the PlanetM Startup Grants, thanks to a new statewide program that provides mobility startups with more and better opportunities to validate and prove new technologies in Michigan.
The PlanetM Pilot Grant will support global mobility startups to deploy their technologies in Michigan in partnership with Michigan communities, ultimately making it easier, safer and more affordable for Michigan residents to get around.
The grant will fund multiple innovative mobility pilot projects of varying sizes that provide mobility solutions in Michigan communities.
Startups will be required to partner with at least one of the following public and/or private entities: community organization, municipality, government agency (e.g. MDOT, county), OEM/supplier, large employer, and/or other Michigan stakeholders.
Individual grant amount will vary and a 25% match is required by the participant’s committed partners.
