The event, held in November, is Michigan’s largest entrepreneurial conference, attracting hundreds of entrepreneurs, venture capitalists and other professionals, according to John McMillan, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Shockwave Motors. His local start-up was the only one of the 20 companies honored that is in the transportation sector.
As described in several previous teknovation.biz articles, Shockwave Motors is developing the Defiant EV3 roadster. McMillan says progress is being made, but not as fast as he had hoped.
“As often happens, the construction of the new roadster is taking a little longer than expected,” he advised in an email. “While we had hoped to be performance testing the new roadster by now, it looks like it will not be finished until sometime in late December.”
