Center Director Jonathan Gifford was asked to become a mentor for 1776 in the transportation arena. “In cities around the world, commuters spend hours each day driving to and from work. Meanwhile, new modes of transportation and new technologies are making it easier and cleaner to get from place to place. 1776 works with startups to identify how we can use technology to make the ways we travel across town and around the world faster, safer, more efficient, and more affordable.” (http://www.1776.vc/)
Gifford has already completed a few monthly mentoring sessions and is excited to continue mentoring the 1776 startups as they work to address current transportation problems through new ideas, technologies and business models.
