Venture Outfitter Weekly presents: Electrification of Mobility with Chris Nielsen

September 22 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

New technology adoption, driving the electrification of mobility with Chris Nielsen
The Electric Cab of North America (eCab) is dedicated to reinventing urban mobility by providing a fun, safe, pollution-free and equitable ride to pedestrians looking for mobility without their personal vehicles.

For this week’s VO weekly, we’re going to learn about eCab which solves the First/Last mile problem through connecting people to public transit and the urban environment while reducing auto congestion, parking management, while driving economic development.

About the Speaker:
Chris Nielsen
Long Time Tech Rancher

Subject Matter Expert
Chris Nielsen is the founder and CEO of Electric Cab North America.
He entered the world of urban mobility in 2008 when he recognized
the need for microtransit within the City of Austin Downtown Central
Business District. Starting with a single electric vehicle, he has
grown the Electric Cab fleet into the largest of its kind for hire in the United States.
Chris works with government and business leaders to develop public-private
partnerships that help provide safe and efficient microtransit to the public for a fraction
of the cost of current platforms.
For the Manufacturing Innovation Bridge, Chris will provide subject matter expertise and
industry acumen.

He’s on the forefront, including rolling out a US DOE Department of Energy grant that is pioneering this.
