Neutrality & Sustainability

by Shareholdership

We neither offer data nor services ourselves. We focus on providing the best possible brokering infrastructure. This neutrality is reflected in our shareholding too. We are growing our investors in a structured manner with a balanced portfolio from all our stakeholder verticals to provide long-term sustainability for all of our partners.

Own & actively govern the marketplace
Take an innovators seat in the ecosystem
Guide our strategy & set priorities
Take advantage by early adoption

Why neutrality is king regarding

our shareholder structure

Even though the mobility market is extremely interesting for venture capital firms, we want to take a different approach. We at Caruso believe that in order to build up a sustainable ecosystem its diversity, openness & neutrality must be reflected in the ownership structure too.
Each partner can decide whether he also wants to become a shareholder. In this role, he has a say in the business model or regarding our strategic objectives. A structure which truly sets us apart from our competitors.
Of course, we are profit-oriented but instead of paying any dividends profits are fully invested to continuously expand our functionality and develop our platform according to the needs of our partners.

Sustainable & impressive

shareholder lineup

Since our founding shareholder TecAlliance made the initial investment another nine well known international industry players joined them in having a say in how we shape the mobility ecosystem with our future strategy, business model & platform developments. We are delighted they are putting the trust in us.
We are expanding our shareholder base constantly across other segments of the mobility market bringing us even closer to achieving our goal of creating the mobility data & service marketplace owned by its participants.
