As previously announced, KEYOU was one of the eight selected start-ups to take part in the Automobilwoche-Kongress in Berlin this year. Therefore, on the 8th and 9th of November, Thomas Korn (CEO) and Alvaro Sousa (CTO) were in Berlin to visit this event, which – as expected – offered a large selection of key decision-makers and their exciting presentations. These included top management officials and CEOs from i.e. BMW, Volkswagen, Skoda or Mercedes-Benz. On the second day of the event KEYOU was able to present itself in front of the industry’s full house. Please see also Automobilwoche Video.
