Automotive Partnering Summit

Strategic Investment for Early-Stage Advanced-Tech

June 4, 2018 | Hotel Del Coronado | San Diego, CA

 

Venture capital is an integral part of the development of new technologies. The Automotive Partnering Summit is designed for CEOs and CFOs interested in developing partnerships on the path to automotive commercialization, from sensors and software in autonomous cars to advanced battery packs and charging infrastructure for electric vehicles. The panel discussions will provide insight into what VCs look for in funding companies and strategies for business development and individual presentations will showcase the latest technologies from early-stage companies seeking funds. In addition to presentations and panel discussions, the symposium is also designed to provide opportunities for one-on-one meetings that will allow for in-depth conversations and next-steps.
