The Michigan Economic Development Corp.’s PlanetM initiative facilitated some 300 “match meetings” between mobility startups and interested carmakers and suppliers ahead of this year’s Detroit auto show, says PlanetM Director Seun Phillips.

The goal was to bring together startups, universities, suppliers and carmakers to connect new technologies in mobility with companies eager to bring such products to market.

Phillips says companies also used an online app to arrange more than 100 meetings on their own, making the initiative a big success.
