We create valuable investment and business opportunities by connecting carefully selected startups with large companies and cities in pursuit of game changing innovation in transportation.

We are in the early stages of a massively disruptive shift to electric, connected, shared, (“uberization”) and self-driven vehicles. Over the next ten years, the digitization of the transport of people and goods has the potential to create $11.4 trillion of economic value globally, based on our recent study on the effects of transport digitization. During the same period, it is anticipated that $6.4 trillion of value will migrate to other stakeholders, leaving $5 trillion of net economic value creation. The underlying economic model integrates over 450 effects from numerous academic and industry studies into a comprehensive industry model that describes the flow of money between the potential “winners and losers” of the transformation of road transportation. Stakeholders in the automotive, oil, insurance, mobile service provider, fleet/telematics, intelligent transportation and mobility-as-a service industries, as well as leaders of countries and mayors of cities are working on how they can secure benefits and minimize collateral damage from this disruption.

What we do

We provide advisory, consulting, and investment services to businesses, governments, and consumers to create economic mobility solutions with innovative vehicle concepts, transportation systems, and transportation services.
