This time Innovation Lab hosted Drive Bay event at hub335 for partner Drive TLV, a leading innovation center for smart mobility technologies. Two panels led by The World Economic Forum and DRIVE and pitches by few of DRIVE’s leading FastLane startups, gave many opportunities for new insights and to develop connections with the ecosystem.

The Drive Bay event was a big success with around 150 people that led to dozens of productive B2B meeting with startups. “We are dedicated to work with others to innovate and shape the future of mobility, and also to enable conversations and collaborations across the ecosystem - serving Silicon Valley as well as serving the larger Volvo Group”, says Jenny Elfsberg, responsible for hub335.
