One of the reasons to choose our Topic “Copycat EU?! How do we differentiate ourselves from silicon valley?” was the rising common feeling among European companies are struggling to compete with U.S. and Chinese tech companies with a rather dark projection towards our economic and financial future.
In fact, Germans mobility sector – once one of the most valuable industries – is changing to slow and might loose the battle towards e-mobility.
One of the reasons behind is the middle management. “The management must be exchanged if necessary” says Tanja in her NGIN Mobility interview on how to prepare for the future.
