DAAV, a pioneering startup revolutionising mobility services for people with reduced mobility, announced the successful closure of its first funding round. The investment was led by Spicehaus Partners.



DAAV is dedicated to providing an inclusive travel experience for individuals with reduced mobility, particularly in airport settings. With its AI-enabled mobility device, DAAV-air, the company aims to enhance the quality of PRM (Persons with Reduced Mobility) services while reducing operational costs for service providers.

DAAV-air features an innovative omnidirectional motion mechanism, granting passengers an unparalleled degree of mobility. This technology significantly improves airport accessibility by navigating in all directions, facilitating seamless movement throughout airport layouts.

Moreover, DAAV-air operates in various smart modes, from tele-operation to follow-me and fully autonomous, ensuring flexibility and convenience for users. DAAV enables airports to provide additional mobility services without the need for additional staff. The AI-enabled mobility device remedies labour shortages, particularly in relation to weekend and night work.

“This investment marks a significant milestone for DAAV,” said Mohsen Falahi, CEO of DAAV. “Grateful for the backing of Spicehaus Partners, Kickfund, and esteemed angels, we are fueled by their belief in our team and vision. This milestone propels us to new heights on our mission to elevate the travel experience for PRM travellers, enriching lives one journey at a time.”

The funding will primarily be allocated towards product development, further pilot implementations across the globe, and market entry initiatives. With traction gained from airports worldwide, DAAV is poised to scale its operations and address the growing demand for innovative mobility solutions in the aviation industry.

“The market opportunity for DAAV is substantial,” Mohsen added. “Offering mobility services for PRM in airports is labour-intensive, expensive, and error-prone. The rising demand for such services stresses the critical need for integrating DAAV-air. It’s not a luxury but an essential solution to guarantee dependable and efficient assistance for PRM travellers.”
