Focus AreaInvestment Focus

NCV’s preliminary goal is to innovate the mobility industry in the following three primary areas
Next Century Ventures

Eco-friendly vehicles and relevant core technologies

For over hundred years, the internal combustion engine has been the technology of choice for the transportation industry. Amid environmental concerns and technological innovation, both electric and hydrogen-fuel-cell vehicles are bringing a “green disruption” to the automotive market. This eco-friendly disruption will be a journey, not a one-time event; and NCV’s mission is to focus on becoming a guiding force for such innovation.

Self-driving vehicles and relevant core technologies

Technology-enabled transportations are disrupting and optmizing the future of mobility. Sensors such as cameras, LiDAR and RADAR are used simultaneously to help vehicles navigate in different conditions. Semiconductors process the data gathered by sensors to make real-time driving decisions. Mapping and machine learning software are tools to improve the decision making of vehicles. NCV’s mission is to focus on becoming a momentous force for such disruption.

MaaS (Mobility as a Service) platforms as well as relevant core technologiess

With the advent of connected and automated vehicles, along with other revolutionary technologies, the concept of transport is changing rapidly. Unlike the traditional “mode-centric” approach, the MaaS platform offers user-centric, personalized options that are tailored according to users’ needs, enabling both more efficient usage of transportation and better customer experience. NCV’s mission is to focus on becoming a driving force for such evolution.
