Start-Ups & Ecosystem

As the Start-Up program in the Innovation unit of Vodafone Germany, we always seek with UPLIFT for innovative partners, to connect on a same level and scale these ideas. With our distinct UPLIFT-Ecosystem we do have the know-how and power of a number of Start-Ups, Corporates, Universities and Hubs to follow an open innovation approach.


In in the midst of overcrowded cities, it is becoming increasingly difficult to experience these advantages quickly, easily and cheaply. Mobility solutions and urban infrastructures are reaching their limits. That’s why light drivables, rather than electric cars, are the solution for more relaxed driving. The Berlin e-mobility startup unu wants to give people full access to all the possibilities the city has to offer, and enable them to enjoy the great potential of urban life. The unu Scooter Classic and the unu Scooter with their portable batteries are just the first step. Vodafone connects the scooters. UPLIFT supports with media- and marketingpresence.

Smart City System

Together with Smart City System Vodafone offers a solution to reduce the unecological
inner-city traffic of drivers constantly searching for parking. The start-up has developed a
self-sufficient, single space parking sensor for parking areas, which is able to capture the
current status and send the information to the cloud. Smart City System`s benefit lies in the
simple and low cost installation and its little need for maintenance. Based on real time
information different APIs and apps can display accurate parking navigation as well as
detailed parking statistics. Numerous installations are already in place or in the final
planning stage.
