The Global Automotive & Mobility Challenge, or GAMIC, was created to identify innovative early-stage automotive products / systems and mobility companies; cultivate new technologies and solutions; and hasten their adoption into the automotive industry.
For the participants, the benefits of GAMIC include mentoring, visibility, acceleration and, for many, proven success. Each year, GAMIC provides over $300,000 of in-kind commercialization services and cash awards to its award winners. GAMIC award winners and finalists have gone on to reach licensing, strategic partnership or research agreements; execute business awards and enter production; and, in several cases, raise millions in investment capital.
For our many partners – who act as speakers, judges, coaches, in-kind award and cash sponsors – GAMIC has provided early access to key technologies; introductions to fellow innovation seekers, and visibility as part of the fast-moving mobility solutions community.
