Energy, Interconnectivity and the Decentralization of Everything with Peter Torrellas

Will we subscribe to our cars in the future? How Mobility as a Service will shape our future.

This is episode 7 in a series of 8 where I have the great opportunity to speak with Sampo Haitanen who is the CEO of MAAS Global, based out of Finland, and the creator of theWhim app. I am a firm believer that a big part of our mobility future will be built around mobility as a service. It already is in the airline industry so automation will make it happen in our neighborhoods as well.
