An honor presented by the Global Warming Mitigation Project, the Keeling Curve Prize is an annual award to fund the best climate solutions the world has to offer. The prize is awarded as $25,000 investments in two winning startups from each of five categories that profoundly impact global sustainability: energy, capture and utilization, finance, social and cultural pathways, and transportation and mobility. Projects that apply in the transportation and mobility category are reimagining and reinventing all types of vehicles, fuels, and mobility options for both people and products. These projects will confront the carbon footprint of the vehicles themselves and the routes traveled. New Venture Competition and Bren Eco Entrepreneurship program alumn, EVmatch, has been selected as a winner in the transportation and mobility category!
EVmatch's value proposition is to significantly expand the charging location options to electric vehicle owners. Through their interface, users can find available charging for their ev that goes beyond the familiar Telsa and ChargePoint stations. For all of us renters, you might be thinking, "I wish my building (or landlord) had an EV charging option". EV Match even makes it easy to request that your building install a charging station, and gives them a reason to host a private charging station!
We're proud of you, EV Match, keep up the good work!
