MN Cup's 2016 High Tech Division winner, Vugo, has been nominated as one of 50 startups to participate in Automobili-D program.
Vugo provides rideshare advertising for everyone. There are over 500,000 rideshare drivers in the United States alone. Vugo is the first and largest ad network to provide this service - they can change buying decisions right before purchases by crafting personalized messages to passengers.
Startups for the program were curated by Techstars Mobility and will allow Vugo to stand shoulder to shoulder with automakers and tier 1 suppliers at the North American International Auto Show - the largest in the world. Techstars Mobility, driven by Detroit, focuses on the rapidly changing mobility and transportation industry. The event has the economic impact of two super bowls and possibly the biggest tradeshow in the Midwest with over 800,000 people attending last year, including President Obama.
Congratulations to Vugo on this milestone! We are thrilled to have MN represented at this national event.
