This approach will position Helixx to transition to a full market launch.

Dr. Lee has been instrumental in this process. Since last year, his extensive expertise as a professor in global entrepreneurship and strategy has refined our Customer Value Propositions and Corporate Business Strategies. His contributions have led to the development of ‘The VE-MaaS™ Solution,’ a fully vertically integrated Eco-Smart Mobility as a Service (MaaS) platform designed to redefine last-mile mobility and urban transportation, and the new corporate slogan ‘Move Better.'”

Today, Helixx is also announcing the launch of its Series A fundraising round, targeting a capital infusion of £16 million (US$20 million) or more, based on a pre-money valuation of £84 million (approximately US$100 million). This funding round is primarily targeting corporate venture capital (CVC) firms, with a strategic focus on auto OEM CVCs such as Toyota Ventures and Hyundai CRADLE, among others. This strategy is designed to foster an investment environment with broad appeal to a range of potential investors across a variety of specialisms, reflecting Helixx’s breadth of impact. Helixx represents a unique investment opportunity with its transformative technology, strong market potential, superior cost efficiency, and unwavering commitment to sustainability.

Helixx invites investors to join this transformative journey to forge a sustainable last-mile mobility and urban transportation ecosystem. Looking ahead, the company is targeting a multi-billion valuation as early as 2030, with the potential for a high-value public listing.

“With Helixx, everyone can Move Better™.”
