a2Tech360 is a series of tech-related events connecting key community actors who enrich the Ann Arbor region – innovators, researchers, investors, businesses, academic institutions, non-profits, job seekers, and the general public.
Where the automotive industry intersects with era-defining innovation, you’ll find Ann Arbor, Michigan. A global destination for trailblazing OEMs, researchers, and entrepreneurs — the mobility ecosystem flourishes here. The city is also home to the University of Michigan which in 2019 invested $1.4 billion in research, making it the top-ranked public research university in the United States.
Emerging from this vibrant collection of mobility leadership is the third annual Ann Arbor Mobility Summit, where visionaries from across the globe gather to share, learn, and inspire. The theme for this year is to focus on the strategies to build resiliency within the mobility ecosystem. We will discuss this in the context of supply chain, improving access, smart city, innovative partnerships, and more.
Join us as we welcome industry leaders, entrepreneurs, public sector officials, transportation leaders, groundbreaking researchers, and curious investors for a morning of spirited panels, fireside chats, presentations, and breakout sessions.
“At a time when industry, academia, and infrastructure providers are examining the transformative needs of our society, mobility innovation has an opportunity to be part of the solution. This summit provides a platform for industry leaders to build connections and share visions for safeguarding the future of mobility.”
– Komal Doshi, Director of Mobility Programs, Ann Arbor SPARK
