CAR Management Briefing Seminars

Connected. Automated. Mobile. Partnerships

Tuesday, August 6  |  2:45  – 4:00 PM


Automotive companies have determined, more than ever before, that advanced transportation technologies and the mobility revolution require partnerships. We’ve seen established companies purchase technology and micro mobility firms, partner with each other, and partner with other industrial sectors in the name of exploring new business opportunities. Similarly, newer companies also rely on partner opportunities. This session will delve more deeply into how partnership decisions are made and what companies have learned from these partnerships thus far. In addition, Valerie Sathe Brugeman will present key information from CAR’s newly-developed Mobility Web, a database that tracks activities in this dynamic space.
