For the first of our Visionary Speaker Series events in 2014 we were joined by Robin Chase, Co-Founder and former CEO of Zipcar. An excited crowd greeted Robin in San Francisco on January 20 where she presented her vision of unleashing new technologies to reinvent the transportation industry. At the event, Robin spoke about how her innovative approach to car usage has had a positive global impact on both individuals and the environment. She also outlined how the next generation of entrepreneurs can draw on Zipcar’s concept of platforms for participation and exploit excess capacity in order to make a difference.
