Co-creating services for the future of mobility
After an intro presentation on the future of mobility, Aldo will facilitate an interactive session with participants to explore and co-create services to enable future of urban mobility. By combining their understanding of human needs from their ethnographic research in Australia and Singapore and mapping out global emerging value propositions, Claro has identified key opportunity spaces for new services. These will serve as inputs to inspire participants to co-create in small teams innovative products and services for the future mobility landscape.
