Innovation

At the 4th Founder Showcase, Keynote Speaker Elon Musk said "the potential value creation of cleantech is greater than the internet." In that vein, we have asked Mark Frohnmayer, CEO of Arcimoto, to speak at the Founder Showcase about the SRK - an ultra efficient vehicle for everyday driving trips. Mark, a software and gaming entrepreneur who sold his last company, Garage Games, to IAC, will describe how Arcimoto is taking a software approach to clean technology and sustainable transportation. 

Below is a recent TEDx talk Mark did on sustainable transportation and the SRK; 


We hope you’ll join us for what will be a great event.
