Automobile Revolution

What German companies can learn from Silicon Valley.

The last driver license newcomer ... is already born!

Automobile Revolution! Using the example of the automotive industry, we see how Silicon Valley companies use autonomous, electric, and hard-hitting cars to make lasting changes to our industries, cities, and societies. German automobile companies are suddenly lagging behind in these developments. Companies like Waymo, Tesla, Apple or Uber are breaking into traditional domains and changing mobility. In this lecture we will learn what this means for us and how we should prepare for it.
