The INFINITI LAB Global Accelerator program reached its 3rd edition with the theme of “The Future Consumer”. The program concluded with Demo Day on 7 December 2017, where the entrepreneurs pitched their ideas to a panel of investors in hope of securing partnerships and funding to propel their businesses to the next phase.
The entrepreneurs also had a chance to pitch their business cases to key decision makers from INFINITI and the Renault-Nissan Alliance.
These programs and key partnerships are the latest developments in INFINITI’s ongoing support of the global startup ecosystem. INFINITI continues to explore innovative new initiatives and partnerships that empower entrepreneurs on every step of their journey.
“INFINITI has an established reputation as an innovator with a pioneering spirit. This makes us a natural partner for entrepreneurs who seek out new experiences and push boundaries every day,” said Dane Fisher, General Manager, Global Business Transformation & Brand, INFINITI Motor Company.
