Einride has made it to top 25 in Sir Richard Branson’s Extreme Tech Challenge, the world’s largest start-up competition. XTC 2019 unfolds across key stages throughout the year leading up to the finals on Necker Island, scheduled to take place April 3rd.
“We are deeply honored and excited about making it to XTC Top 25. This is a great opportunity to prove to the world what is possible with cutting-edge connectivity, battery, and self-driving technology. But don’t think of it as “extreme”. Conventional road freight transportation is extreme – harmful to the planet and to people’s health. Einride’s and similar sustainable solutions are the necessary way forward. And in that sense, we’re the new normal” says Robert Falck, CEO and founder of Einride.
