Innovation Days San Francisco

At the Innovation Days, companies, designers, engineers, and entrepreneurial students come together to turn ideas into prototypes within 48 hours. Our theme #MicroMobility addresses the rapid adoption of shared scooters, dockless bike and emerging micro-mobility services. The challenge focuses on the charging infrastructure, customer experience and business models to reshape mobility in cities around the world. Join us to transform the way we get around to ease congestion, reduce emissions and make carbon-free transportation a reality.
