Ecosummit TV – ECO11 – Gregor Matthies – Bain & Company
At ECO11, the consultant and automotive expert Gregor Matthies, Partner, Bain & Company, gave a well-prepared overview of the Electric Mobility market. It turns out that German car makers are not leading the development of new EVs which I personally regret. At the same time, this offers new business opportunities for startups that want to develop new electric future cars and sell them later to the OEMs.
I believe that new EVs optimised for car sharing, such as the City Car developed by Hiriko, have huge market potential. But as Gina Domanig of Emerald Technology Ventures pointed out finding funding for a new EV startup in Europe is a tough game. Investors too often are rather risk-averse and tend to think small. Who are the future mobility entrepreneurs that can prove this statement to be wrong?
