Eran Shir on Transportation Designed for 2020+

Slow Ventures Snail Mail

Tuesday, October 20th, 2020

Slow Family,

Last week's 'Everything But Politics and the Pandemic' discussion with Dave Morin was a fun one and raised ~$400 for The Human Rights Campaign Foundation. If you didn't get the chance to join, check out recording here for discussion on identity, social media and the role of regulation.

This Wednesday, we're excited to bring on Eran Shir, the founder and CEO of intelligent dash-cam application leader Nexar, for a group discussion about some of the biggest problems in the transportation space today and what the future will look like. And moving forward, we are planning on hosting these bi-weekly-ish on Wednesdays and Fridays.

On the Slow Speaker Series

Slow is hosting a series of interesting conversations with founders in our network and friends in the community. These are meant to be live discussions with participants on zoom, casual, informative, and fun. To keep things small-ish, each event we ask for a $10 contribution that goes to the charity of the speaker's choice.
