The Detroit Free Press had a great article this morning about GM’s drive to invest in early stage startups, rather than focus all its money on in-house R&D. This is an increasing trend I’m noticing and I think it’s because many companies believe they can get a better return on investment along with more innovative ideas from sending that money outside corporate. GM is focused on clean tech and green materials, among other areas like infotainment that are related to connected cars. It’s no secret that multinational corporations are sitting on massive amounts of cash. I know a few startups that would be happy to take it off their hands.
