Charlotte de Vilmorin
CEO & Co-founder, Wheeliz
Launched in 2015 by Charlotte de Vilmorin, Wheeliz is the first website to provide peer-to-peer wheelchair user adapted car rentals. The idea of creating in France a community of individual owners of a vehicle equipped with a ramp, or a car with an adapted driver’s system to a wheelchair user who needs it, came to Charlotte having herself difficulties commuting ever day when you are disabled. Wheeliz was selected as the best social innovation project by the European Commission and has won multiple awards including the APAJH Trophy, the Moovjee Civic Engagement trophy, the Reporters of Hope Prize, the Startup & Handicap prize for their favorite project, the Handi-Entrepreneur trophy, and more.
