MOBILITY & LOGISTICS

Investing in innovation for the movement of people and goods, on the ground, air and sea.

Roman roads are a factor of incalculable importance in the very history of mankind. Rome became a mobile  source of civilization and mistress of the world precisely  because, through her roads, she had managed to systematically control a great part of the Earth’s surface.” -- (Wolfgang Victor von Hagen, Le grandi strade di Roma nel mondo, 1978)


Having a robust and resilient transportation system for mobility of goods and people is a key economic and geopolitical asset from ancient times and continues today. Accessible, affordable, and equitable mobility services also help a city or a state to be a preferred place to live, drawing talent from around the world.

Emerging technologies such as electric and autonomous vehicles, drones, 5G, industrial IoT, robotics, and digitized logistics chains are rapidly changing movement of good. Consumers order more things online, expecting more control and faster deliveries. Manufacturers, retailers, distributors are forced to adopt new operating models and technologies like 3D printing to meet such high expectations of their customers.

We invest with our partners in startups that have innovative and scalable solutions for the future of mobility through our programs.
