The Corporate + Startup Experience

"FreeWire came in expecting 3 months of presentations, but what we got was a pilot project and a demonstration on the ground. Over the next 6 months, we're going to continue this pilot with BP within their phase gates built into the program, for us to deploy more with them as long as the results are positive."

Arcady Sosinov, CEO, FreeWire Technologies

"The opportunity to partner with startups and the collaborative model of RocketSpace's accelerator provides BP with a fantastic platform on which we can offer our expertise and passion for innovation to help startups grow."

Roy Williamson, Vice President, Mobility, BP

The Startup Experience

"We were able to take 30 vehicles, run them through a double-blind study, which led to a very interesting comparison between CARFIT data, and the data obtained from onboard diagnostic systems today."

Peter Houser, CTO, CARFIT Corporation

 The Corporate Experience

"We have a very competitive industry with only a few major players, so the extent that we can expose ourselves to early-stage companies with different technology in the mobility space helps us maintain competitive advantage... If a company the size and scale of Avis is using a product that Altigreen makes, it gives it more credibility. For us, what we get out of this is also giving the startup companies some momentum."

Mike Robortaccio, Director of Corporate Development, Avis Budget Group
