Jeffrey Mosher catches up with Sobhan Khani VP, Internet of Things / Mobility / Real Estate Tech, while he is in Stutgart, Germany. Plug And Play, the world’s largest global innovation program, in partnership with PlanetM and the Michigan Economic Development Corporation hosted Detroit’s first Mobility Matchmaking event.
Detroit was the natural choice for the event, with its deep automotive history. Attendees will include 40 startups (16 Michigan-based), 60 corporations, mobility leaders and educational institutions like Michigan Tech, University of Michigan and Wayne State University.
The event is meant to make connections in the mobility space, giving startups the chance to present demos to corporations looking for new technologies, showcasing Michigan as the leader in mobility. Plug and Play also has Silicon Valley VC partners that can lead to investment.
