Çetin Meriçli is the co-founder and CEO of Locomation, a Pittsburgh startup building autonomous trucks. His company is taking a novel approach to the technical challenge by pairing trucks together, instead of building a single truck to stand alone.
Locomation has raised more than $5 million from 13 venture investors, including Pittsburgh VC firm Draper Triangle Ventures.
Çetin’s team, including 5 co founders, have been working together for a decade and are aiming to realize the opportunity in the multi-trillion dollar logistics industry.
Çetin and Aaron discuss how to sell into the 4 key groups that will determine Locomation’s success: investors, employees, customers, and regulators.
You’ll walk away from this episode with a much better understanding of the timeline and challenges associated with autonomous vehicle technology.
