COMPETE FOR $15,000 & GLOBAL MEDIA COVERAGE

WHAT IS IT

As the new auto industry’s trade show, we feature companies that are redefining mobility, converging business sectors, and driving change in transportation. With so many startups coming onto the scene each year, it’s important for us to highlight the most unique ones that are poised for success.

These ten startups get set apart from thousands of newcomers, earn a tremendous amount of media exposure, and place their products/services on AutoMobility LA’s global stage.

HOW IT WORKS

AutoMobility LA’s Top Ten Startups will be judged by leaders from major companies in the automotive and technology spaces, including Audi, Plug and Play, Porsche Consulting, Sansea Consulting, and Sirius XM Connected Vehicles alongside the LA Auto Show executive team.

Previous finalists, such as Spatial.ai and HAAS Alert, have gone on to receive significant funding rounds after participating in the competition.

Once the Top Ten Startups have been selected, this team of esteemed jurors will narrow the list of ten down to three finalists and a grand prize winner. The winning startup will receive a live, on-stage advisor session with influencers in the technology and automotive industries on the afternoon of Tuesday, November 29.

The top ten winner and three finalists will be announced prior to the 2018 AutoMobility LA show, taking place at the Los Angeles Convention Center Nov. 26-29.
