Bugged with the Metro last mile connectivity?

How about you find a solution to that?

In order to ease this mobility problem and provide comfort and high-quality last-mile connectivity while ensuring sustainable growth, WRI India Ross Center and the Toyota Mobility Foundation (TMF) in collaboration with the IT department of Govt of Telangana, Hyderabad Metro Rail Limited, L&T Metro Rail Hyderabad and IIIT-H has launched the Station Access and Mobility Program (STAMP).  The STAMP Challenge encourages  innovative ideas  in the mobility and last mile connectivity space that remove the hassle out of commuting for users. Apart from supporting the ideas with a grant, STAMP also provides domain expertise, business management strategy etc. to go from idea state to proof of concept and run pilots.

The panel of experts and mentors includes eminent individuals like Ramesh Loganathan (Professor Co-Innovation and Head Research Outreach, IIIT Hyderabad), Phanindra Sama (Founder & ex-CEO, RedBus and Chief Innovation Officer, Government of Telangana), K.V.B. Reddy (Managing Director & CEO, L&T Metro Rail Hyderabad), N.V.S. Reddy (Managing Director, Hyderabad Metro Rail Limited) and many others.

A similar challenge that was conducted with Bangalore Metro last year witnessed participation from various startups and citizen groups. A total of 80 applications were received, 13 teams were shortlisted to participate in an intensive five-day accelerator program tailored for mobility start-ups and 4 ideas were shortlisted on the pitch day which received grants and support to conduct pilots.

The #STAMP2018 Hyderabad edition was launched on the 9th of June at Park Hyatt. The STAMP Challenge is inviting applications for last-mile solutions from innovators and entrepreneurs and 2 to 3 solutions will be awarded innovation grants for implementation at a selected metro station.

Program Timeline:
