Learn electrification trends, technologies, and most importantly how they will impact our lives with Tricia Martinez, Techstars MD.
About this event
Electrification is poised to be one of the biggest growth opportunities in our industrial economy. In the electric car market alone, electric vehicles (EVs) doubled in 2021 from the previous year to a new record of 6.6 million. Nearly 10% of global car sales were electric in 2021, four times the market share in 2019. This brought the total number of electric cars on the world’s roads to about 16.5 million, triple the amount in 2018.
Tricia Martinez is currently the Managing Director for Techstars Industries of the Future. She is a serial entrepreneur, Techstars accelerator alumni, and has been at the forefront of electrification during her time in the U.S. Department of Energy and as a Presidential Innovation Fellow. She is currently taking an active role in East Tennessee campaigning for an electrification innovation hub.
