This week, Germany legalizes e-scooters, New York tries to ban distracted walking, and noise pollution looms as a public health crisis, but first…
Uber. Jump. Lime. Bird.
What do these companies have in common?
They’re among the fastest growing transportation companies in history.
They’re all speaking at Micromobility Europe.
The next generation of Henry Fords is coming together in Berlin on Oct. 1 to make the case for why the future of transport will be electrified, connected, and shared.
And somewhere in that room will be the person who is going to figure it out, climb the S curve, transform the $15T transit industry, and put a massive dent in the 40% of carbon emissions that come from personal automobiles.
Come meet the crew that is going to revolutionize 21st-century mobility.

But maybe the best reason to join is to get access to mMeetup, the monthly conference call where participants can ask their own questions about micromobility directly to Horace Dediu.
Each month Horace picks a pressing issue in transportation and invites premium members to pick his brain about it.
This month’s call will focus on why micromobility fits the rubric for disruptive innovation, as defined by Clayton M. Christensen. It will take place on Thursday, May 23 from 12 - 1p EST (9 - 10a PST / 6 - 7p CET).
