  • 1. Car rental services

To get inspired, let's start with examples of startups that have become successful and have grown into a full-fledged business. Car rental services appeared not so long ago in the automotive industry, and now they are part of most people's lives. We use car rental services especially often when traveling to explore a new place on the car on our own. At the same time, using rental services have a big number of advantages in comparison with taxi services, because you can choose a car yourself depending on your preferences and budget. Even premium car rental in Dubai today is available for the users. It secures safety and reliability. The provision of such services shows the level of a small car rental startup that once grew into a popular car rental service in the UAE.

The German startup Charges offers an optimal solution for charging electric vehicles, which turns parking spaces into charging stations. The solution recognizes the power requirements of each vehicle and automatically monitors the charging speed for each one.
