Vianova, a Paris-based collaborative mobility data platform, announced that it has secured €6 million in a Series A.
The round was led by Baloise, with participation from invetors including La Poste Ventures, operated by XAnge, RATP Capital Innovation, Ponooc, and Contrarian Ventures.
The funding will be used to grow its team, accelerate global expansion, and further develop its mobility data platform.
Thibault Castagne, co-founder and CEO at Vianova, says, “We started Vianova with the simple idea of bridging the data gap between public authorities (cities) and private transport providers (ride-hailing, shared mobility companies), yet this vision has since grown as we serve more and more use cases and customer segments.”
The French company uses cloud-based mobility analytics software to leverage the IoT (Internet of Things) and data from 1 million or more connected vehicles daily to provide stakeholders with the most advanced geo-intelligence.
