Saving the world is no easy feat. And unless you’re a superhero, the options for keeping the people of this planet safe take a lot of hard work and dedication to a cause you care about. This kind of commitment manifests itself in Justin Fishkin, the chief strategy officer of Local Motors. In addition to contributing to the production of self-driving and 3D printed cars, Justin will also be a featured speaker at Innovate! and Celebrate 2016 in Silicon Valley this September.

Justin Fishkin’s time at Local Motors has yielded a bevy of sustainable technologies that will make saving the world from the issues plaguing it today significantly easier. The production of Olli, the self-driving car that’s easy on the eyes, offers a smart, safe, and sustainable transportation solution that is long overdue.

“Olli is proof positive of what’s possible when you empower a global community of innovators to do something amazing,” said Fishkin to Tech.Co. “This vehicle has the capability to solve the issues of overcrowded roads and in efficient public transportation, and it’s due to the effort put forth by the Local Motors co-creation community.”

Local Motors is working on their next project that will see emergency services brought to the farthest stretches of the world. After partnering with Airbus and putting a call out to the designers of the world in the Airbus Cargo Drone Challenge, they have begun prototyping a cargo drone that would be able to land and take off in a wide range of environments while carrying between 3-5kgs of food, medical tools, and anything else you can imagine. This design will be revolutionary in bringing sustainable assistance to people around the world.

We could not be more excited to have Justin Fishkin as a featured speaker at Innovate! and Celebrate 2016. His commitment to sustainability and his innovative drive in the face of unique problems will bring a flair to the conference that will inspire, enlighten, and excited even the youngest of entrepreneurs. Plus, he’s pretty excited about it too.

“I’m eager to represent Local Motors at Tech.Co’s Innovate and Celebrate 2016,” said Fishkin. “As one of the biggest tech and entrepreneurial events of the year, this is an incredible opportunity to share the Local Motors story with like-minded professionals while learning from the successes and experiences from peers.”
