Berlin, September 30, 2019 - Today McKinsey and Project A are hosting the Mobility Summit on the future of Urban and Micromobility. Uwe Horstmann, General Partner at Project A, will launch a comprehensive whitepaper on trends, technologies, and players in the mobility sector. For this Whitepaper, Project A interviewed representatives of the automotive sector as well as scientists. The whitepaper provides a unique overview of the mobility landscape based on five case studies, an interview with Prof. Dr. Andreas Knie from the Berlin Social Science Center (WZB), and theses from ten experts.
"We believe that the challenges in the field of automotive mobility are particularly well-suited for established companies, startups, and legislators to find and offer exciting solutions together," says Uwe Horstmann. "We want to use this whitepaper to shed light on the topic of automotive mobility from our perspective: a venture capital investor who supports startups and works closely with established companies on these topics. However, in doing so, we don’t simply want to disseminate our own opinions and views, but rather give an overview, let experts express their opinions and thus make it easier for readers to dive into the topic. Our aspiration is initial segmentation, not absolute truth. Most recently, we used this approach in a whitepaper on digital health and we received highly positive feedback for it."
