Nissan North America playing major role in this year’s “36|86 Entrepreneurship Festival”

Nissan North America has signed-on as the presenting sponsor for next month’s “36|86 Entrepreneurship Festival” in Nashville.

Coordinated by Launch Tennessee, the two-day event will be held August 29 and 30 at various venues around the downtown area. Nissan will host “Innovation Alley,” an interactive experience for attendees and the public to experience Nissan Intelligent Mobility — the company’s vision for changing how vehicles are powered, driven and integrated into a connected society.

In addition, Maarten Sierhuis, Chief Technology Director at the Nissan Research Center in Silicon Valley, will participate in a fireside chat discussing the future of intelligent mobility. Sierhuis leads multiple teams of researchers working on the development of future autonomous vehicles, connectivity and human-machine interaction and interface.
