On today's episode we do a very quick recap of the inaugural 2019 Micromobility Summit and then turn our attention to talk through what early stage investment in micromobility looks like with Reilly Brennan of Trucks Venture Capital (@reillybrennan).

Prior to Trucks, Reilly was Executive Director for Stanford’s automotive research program, Revs. He is very well known in the transport technology space.
In this episode we discuss:
- Trucks VC and how it's adjusted it's thinking about micromobility in its search for the companies that will power the future of transportation.
- How he thinks about the evolution of the supply chain in the micromobility sector, and who will be looking to get involved.
- Where he sees parallels between the existing early stages of micromobility and the autonomous vehicle space a few years ago.

We also discuss the new Micromobility VC syndicate on AngelList that will be syndicating interesting deals in the micromobility space out to early stage investors.
