Automobility Tech Deals – Quarterly Newsletter 1st Edition

1st Quarter 2022

Welcome to the premier edition of our Automobility Tech Deals newsletter!

Automobility’s EXCELerate Pipeline and Internet of Mobility Thesis

We have recently published the 33rd edition of our Automobility EXCELerate pipeline (click here to

access), featuring a curated list of global auto and mobility technology startups that fit our “Internet of

Mobility” thesis.

You can read more about our thesis using the following links:

The Rise of Smart Electric Vehicles and the Digital Internet of Mobility

How the Smart EV Powers the Transition to Smart Energy Management


The core of our thesis revolves around our view that digital disruption has created an entirely “new game”

dominated by large user-centric demand aggregators that view mobility and associated services as a

means to disintermediate the traditional hardware-centric “old game” of the automotive industry business


The core technologies that enable new revenue and profit opportunities lie in the 4 layers of the IoM

“stack” depicted above. Our portfolio companies offer what we believe to be very attractive opportunities

to profit from investing in the technologies.

This quarterly newsletter will feature the companies that are actively fundraising and aim to close rounds

in the next 3-6 months.

About Automobility

Automobility Limited is a strategy and investment advisory firm helping its clients to create the future of

mobility. Mobility needs, previously satisfied through product “ownership”, are increasingly being served

through mobility services “usership” with profound implications not only for traditional businesses within

the value chain, but also for new entrants – as they compete to deliver services. Connected mobility,

which we define as “technology-enabled on-demand mobility services for moving people and goods from

point A to B”, has become a disruptive, paradigm-changing development in the automotive industry. It

requires a complete rethinking of the way to deliver value to the market. To succeed, companies must

expand their focus from the product (the automobile) to the utility derived from the product

(“automobility”) and create a business model and digital ecosystem optimized to provide digitally enabled

solutions for both car owners and mobility services users.
