Dear Techcode Family & Friends,
An exciting program and interesting guests await you on our Mobility Panel on Thursday during the 'Connecting Startup Cities' Conference.
**Keynote: Future Mobility trends in China and Germany – an overview of ecosystems, driving forces and key players**
Wolfgang Hirn (Manager Magazin)
Regarding many new technologies the world’s eyes are more and more on China. Especially in the field of mobility, actors in China are on the same level if not ahead of the West and ready to leap-frog. In his Keynote Wolfgang Hirn will give an overview of the differences of future mobility technology in Germany and in China.
**Fireside Chat: 'Developing global collaboration networks: connected cars are just the beginning**
Till Ammelburg (TechCode), Alice Chan (Porsche Digital Lab), Jürgen Mayntz (HIGH Mobility), Presentation: Derk Marseille
"No man is an island", and neither is any ecosystem looking to innovate. New ideas and inspiration cannot blossom without the input of others – it becomes a collaborative effort. The connected car of the future will offer you a vast range of apps and services similar to what we are used to with mobile phones. High Mobility is building a platform to connect 3rd party developers and OEMs and create business opportunities. In a project together with Porsche, developers competed in the past 2 months in building apps and services for the Mission E and the Cayenne. Techcode took part and built the bridge to developer communities in China.
**Panel: Making Future Mobility - new alliances for emerging markets**
Alice Etropolszky - door2door Robin Tech - Atomleap Sheng Hu - Alibaba Cloud Swagat Chopra - SIGRA Tech Dirk Evenson (Director New Mobility World), Presentation: Till Ammelburg
There are manifold opportunities to shape the future of mobility together - Tech and Automotive, Corporates and Startups, East and West. What cooperation models are there? What worked? What did not? And what about internationalization? Shall German mobility Startups focus on China as a priority? What are challenges for Chinese players to enter the German market?
**Keynote: Progress beyond tech – why humans matter**
Dirk Evenson (Director NMW Logistics)
What makes ideas become reality? Beyond technology, it will always be humans – their mindsets and actions – that will decide the fate of any new service or product. Understanding and cooperating with your stakeholders, from cities to consumers, is key for success.
We are looking forward to seeing you!
