Manufacturing – Going to Market, Two part Panel/Q&A

Moving from technology readiness level (TRL) 5 or 6 to proof of concept and securing business with an automotive manufacturer remains a challenge to many startup companies looking for success. The challenge of differing clock speeds between automakers and technology companies make industry startup partnerships difficult, and yet both agree that working together is essential to move through the massive technology shift underway within the industry. This session will explore how this process has played out for manufacturers and startups alike.
