Cooperation in Motion: The Automotive Opportunity

Join us for a unique virtual event that will feature innovation executives from four leading Automotive OEMs.

Automakers are now firmly ‘open for business’ when it comes to working with and investing in innovative companies both big and small. Today’s OEM must move fast and increasingly rely on partnerships and strategic investments otherwise they run the risk of falling behind. In addition, startups are now focusing in on an industry that has historically been a ‘closed shop’ resulting in new innovative solutions and investments being made at a pace not seen before. Join us for a unique virtual event that will feature innovation, partnership and investment executives from four leading brands talking about their own approach to this space and the new opportunities just coming online.

Moderator: Ed Frank, CEO, Axis Innovation (Israel)

Elsa Lamartinie – VP, Business Labs, Stellantis (France)

Peter Virk – Director of Connected Car & Future Technology, JLR (UK)

Scott Lyons - Global In Vehicle Content, Services & Tech Partnerships, Ford (Germany)

Sohalia Ouffata - Director of Platform, BMW i Ventures (Germany)


Topics that will be covered are:

  • How partnerships play an increasing role in the OEM landscape
  • How we are adapting to facilitate partnerships including incubation and investment
  • Build, buy or partner
  • How can partnering accelerate innovation
  • Are there particular areas that are more open for partnership considerations
  • Where can OEM’s work together in this space
  • Co-investing in start-ups
