Government’s Gamble: The Future of Transportation
It’s no secret that the transportation industry is changing in big cities. The days of simply hailing a cab are limited, with applications such as Uber, Sidecar and Getaround entering the marketplace – and giving traditional transportation a run for its money. But the government isn't always on board with these new initiatives, and creating struggles for these companies to thrive and survive. Moderated by TechCrunch's Ryan Lawler, Lightspeed Venture Partners' Justin Caldbeck, Sidecar's CEO Sunil Paul and Getaround's co-founder Jessica Scorpio will discuss how transportation startups can effectively work with government organizations, and the future of the industry outside of big cities.
