CANADIAN SUCCESS STORY: SPOTLIGHT ON WAABI

Waabi is a revolutionary autonomous vehicle startup founded in Toronto by AI pioneer Raquel Urtasun, former Chief Scientist and Head of R&D at Uber Advanced Technology Group’s Toronto division. Fresh out of stealth after raising $83.5 million USD in 2021, Waabi is developing a groundbreaking AI-first approach to self-driving trucking that significantly reduces the need for on-road testing resulting in a safer, more affordable solution.

Please join Waabi’s Founder and CEO, Raquel Urtasun, in conversation with Michelle Scarborough, Managing Partner, Thrive Venture Fund and Women in Technology Venture Fund (BDC Capital) and Michael Denham, Vice Chairman, Commercial and Financial Markets, National Bank of Canada as they discuss Waabi’s unique AI-centric approach, being one of the first women-led AV startups and the race to become/lead the next generation of self-driving technology.
