Via-ID the business accelerator of Mobivia Groupe, is acquiring a share in Wayz-Up, After acquiring a share in Drivy, the European leader in peer-to-peer car rentals, in April 2015, Via-ID – the business accelerator of Mobivia Groupe dedicated to eco-mobility – continues to invest and consolidate its position in shared mobility.
Launched in 2014 by Julien Honnart and Cyrille Courtière, Wayz-Up is a car-pool solution specialising in commuting for companies. Historically based in the Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines area (78) with the Renault Technocentre, the start-up has developed rapidly in the Ile-de-France region, winning over twenty large companies such as Crédit Agricole, Carrefour, Vinci and Danone. Wayz-Up has worked with its partners to set up some highly developed car-pooling networks, offering a real alternative to private cars and public transport. The 10,000 trips offered per day in the Paris region make it the largest car-pooling network in the Ile-de-France.
According to Yann Marteil, CEO of Via-ID and member of the Executive Committee of Mobivia Groupe :
With the BtoB approach of Wayz-Up, but also through the support it offers to companies to develop new practices among their employees, we are confident in the start-up’s ability to quickly take leadership of a promising market in France and abroad. Via-ID’s professional skills will be invaluable for achieving this and it will foster synergies with the Group and its brands.
