Andrew Hart from SBD will present multiple connected car service case studies and insights to illustrate why the biggest challenges the automotive industry faces today are not only technical – but organizational. By increasing our understanding of the organizational issues negatively impacting consumer use of connected car services we can become change agents in our own companies and catalysts for business success.

We're done with the theoretical discussion. Connected cars now occupy the roadways all around us. Older cars have ample aftermarket OBDII solutions, and increasing numbers of new models have some sort of Internet connectivity baked in by the OEM. The connectivity is powering personalized services, infotainment, security, Usage Based Insurance, vertical enterprise functions, software updates, car sharing, and remote control features. It's happening.
Our Connected Car meeting is a great discussion of these innovations, present products, and the direction we are going. For this meeting, we bring together two important Silicon Valley groups, the Autotech Council with dozens of auto companies, and the Telecom Council with hundreds of members from the telecom, app, and mobility industry. This great mix of the right companies means lots of insight, knowledge, and opportunity for deal-making.
This meeting is free for Autotech Council members, open to non-members for a $200 fee, and Rapid Fire Demo Slots are available during registration to companies who can show off new products or services based on sensors and sensor technology.
OEMs members of the Autotech Council meet for informal and private discussions over breakfast.

Autotech Council members gather every other month to review a handful of innovative products and solutions coming out of the auto industry's entrepreneurial community across the globe. Between 4 and 8 companies will get the chance to present to a group of innovation scouts for major auto manufacturers, vendors, distributors and investors.
At these bi-monthly meetings, members get the chance to connect with startups one-on-one, network with other members in an informal setting, discuss trends in a executive round-table format, take private meetings over lunch, and still get back to the office by 2:30. Startups, in turn, get the opportunity to pitch several car makers and their vendors and suppliers at one time, without several business trips and weeks of business development. Each startup is given the opportunity to connect with the members in-person after their presentation.
These bi-monthly meetings are for members only, free to attend, and closed to the public or the media.
