On February 21, six Forefront Fellows presented their own transit-based projects for feedback and discussion.

The event took place at URBAN-X, a new civic tech accelerator from MINI and SOSV. URBAN-X invests in startups who are focused on intelligent cities, urban hyper-growth, and society-scale challenges. Four members of the URBAN-X cohort gave flash pitches of new tech solutions to our Fellows and participated in our roundtable conversation.
