Mobility 2022 where isThe road to commercializing autonomous vehicle technology for people has split into two paths.

In one camp, AV developers like Argo AI, Aurora, Cruise, Motional, Waymo and Zoox are aiming straight for full autonomy — a system that can handle all driving within certain conditions and with no expectation for a human to take over.

The value that startups create is nearly on par with the GDP of a G7 economy and the amount of startup funding in 2021 surpassed $600 billion, shattering funding records. The number of unicorns is well past the 1,000 mark and growing exponentially.

While growth for startups is core to their survival, it is equally important for them to develop responsibly. We asked the CEOs of Global Innovators and Technology Pioneers, the Forum's communities of high growth innovative startups, for their views on how they are helping to drive economic recovery while scaling up sustainably and responsibly.

These programs will develop or scale regional economies and devote funding to workforce training and support equitable development, including science parks and accelerators.

Thirty other finalists though will not be winners though as EDA only has funds to support thirty awards, much less the hundreds of jurisdictions from across the U.S. that applied for the program. (Five hundred and twenty-nine applicants were received by the EDA.)

But as they say on late night TV: Wait, There’s More
