One of our favorite events is the Automotive Intelligence Summit, which brings together an array of auto industry professionals to Raleigh for three days of knowledge sharing. Last year’s event was fantastic, but this year was unfortunately disrupted by COVID-19. After a delay to August from the original date in April, the conference was rescheduled as a virtual affair.
Over the course of the last month, keynotes and workshops have been released to the Auto Intel Summit Digital website, including two with our CEO, Scot Wingo!
Scot’s workshop, which went live on August 10th, was originally set to be about the Decade of Vehicle 2.0 - a topic explored throughout the Vehicle 2.0 Podcast. In light of pandemic-related impacts across the industry, Scot pivoted to discuss how COVID-19 will affect the future of vehicles as well. Anyone familiar with Scot will appreciate how he blends his e-commerce experience with the analysis of data across automotive and travel.

The second session with Scot got off to a rocky start due to a widespread Zoom outage on the original date but was rescheduled to close out the month-long event. He was joined by Jason Caplain of Bull City Venture Partners, Lister Delgado of IDEA Fund Partners, and Steve Greenfield of Automotive Ventures. Over the course of 45 minutes, they dove into some of their personal histories before exploring the impacts they’ve experienced due to COVID-19 - such as having investor meetings via Zoom.
