Volkswagen Group's Moia sub-brand launched last year at TechCrunch Disrupt, with a focus on helping connect the dots between VW's existing automotive business and a future where city-dwellers also rely heavily on ride pooling and ride hailing services. Moia CEO Ole Harms will join us this year to recap how Moia's first year in existence has gone, what he company, and Volkswagen Group have learned about mobility services, and what comes next.
Moia has been upfront about seeking out technology partners for its mobility efforts, and it kicked that off with a $300 million investment in Gett last year, the Uber competitor based in Europe. We'll find out what Harms and Moia think of the competitive landscape now that things have shifted, with a number of partnerships formed between automakers, startups, tier one supplier and more with a specific focus on mobility services.
