Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG, with headquarters in Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen, is one of the most profitable car makers in the world. In 2016, Porsche delivered 237,778 vehicles of the 911, Cayenne, Macan, Panamera, 718 Boxster and Cayman models to customers worldwide. That was 6 per cent more than the year before. Thereby, the sports car manufacturer’s operating profit amounted to 3.9 billion euros, up 14 per cent from the previous year’s comparative figure. Porsche operates plants in Stuttgart and Leipzig as well as a development centre in Weissach. The sports car maker employs about 28,000 people (as at March 31, 2017). The Porsche principle of getting the most out of all opportunities stems from the race track and is embodied in every vehicle. Thanks to its high quality standards, 70 per cent of all Porsches ever built are still on the street today.

Moovit offers real-time public transit information and GPS navigation across transit modes, including buses, ferries, rapid transit (metro/subways/undergrounds, etc.), trains, trams, and trolleybuses.
Users can access a live map, and view nearby stops and stations based on their current GPS location, as well as plan trips across transportation modes based on real-time data.
The application differs from traditional public transit applications as it is community-driven and integrates official public transit data from transit operators with real-time data collected from users via crowdsourcing.
In early 2015, Moovit became the first provider to create transit data for areas in which no data is officially available (or where local transit agencies do not offer it to app developers) by creating a “community editor” and allowing volunteer editors to generate schedule and map data to be loaded into the Moovit app.
Moovit is available in more than 2,200 cities across 80 countries around the world.

Volocopter GmbH is the global leader in the development of vertically launching, fully electrical multicopters for the transport of people and of heavy lifting cargo drones.

In addition, the unique design offers a huge degree of safety based on the high redundancy of all critical components. The company’s stated objective is to make every human’s dream of flying come true and to help modern cities resolve their increasing mobility issues. As early as 2011 the company earned its entry into the history of aviation through the manned flight of the world’s first purely electrical multicopter. Since then the young enterprise has set new milestones: In 2016 Volocopter was granted provisional licensing for a two seater Volocopter by the German aviation authority and in 2017 the aviation start-up entered into an agreement with RTA Dubai over the global premiere of an autonomously flying air taxi. The first licensed Volocopter should be on the market next year. In the meantime, the founders Stephan Wolf and Alexander Zosel have gathered an excellent teamof experienced managers like CEO Florian Reuter and CTO Jan-Hendrik Boelens. This paved the way for the further expansion of the company. Notable shareholders include global companies such as Daimler and Intel.
