Event description
Join and meet Ford for an opportunity to hear directly from its Business & Partnerships teams, and to pitch your ideas.

About this Event

Prior to the seventh annual Ford Make It Driveable Challenge which will be virtual for the first time on October 20-21st, hear and learn from the Ford team about how they work with startups. Some companies will be selected to pitch their technology during the event.

Why Attend the Virtual City Tour?

Pretty simple, the City Tour is a great way for you to test out your idea on the Ford team prior to submitting an application to attend the main event in October. Attendees will have a chance to request 1-on-1 meetings during the event.

If your submission application is accepted you will have access to Ford executives, engineers, business teams as well as invited guests during a 2-day online challenge.

Prizes will be announced later this summer.

If you have an idea that can enhance the Connected Car, “Beamed in” or a smartphone based app “Brought in” , then the Ford Virtual MakeItDriveable Challenge Europe is for you!
