Thirty self-driving car pilots from Silicon Valley technology companies, startups, and global car manufacturers are redefining the future of human mobility. We are on the cusp of a revolution in the automotive industry that will usher in new business models, new vehicle designs, and the transformation of other related industries—energy, freight, insurance, infrastructure, and beyond.

This two-day bootcamp will prepare entrepreneurs and business professionals to identify the business opportunities emerging in the autonomous vehicle (AV) field. On day one, we will survey the AV landscape to understand the players creating this ecosystem. Next, you will learn how to look at the AV space as a business by engaging in a digital transformation case study with speakers from Mercedes. This exercise will teach you how to look at the AV space as a business and provide a step-by-step framework for analyzing business drivers, mobility solutions, design, car cognition, car data, digital transformation, and business models. On day two, we will take a close look at the AV investment landscape, and you will have a chance to meet venture capitalists and learn how to position yourself for success in the evolving AV and smart mobility markets. By the end of the workshop, you will better understand trends driving the autonomous vehicle revolution and create a framework for successfully pivoting into this space.

Guest speakers include: VijaiSai Patnaik, Product Manager, Waymo; Kyle Columbus, Program Launch Manager for Future Transportation, Mercedes-Benz Research and Development; Oliver Cameron, CEO, Voyage.auto; Sanjit Singh Dang, Partner, Intel Capital; Anupam Rastogi, Nokia Venture Partners; and Gail Gottehrer, Tech Attorney.
