13: Avinash Rugoobur, President & Chief Strategy Officer, Arrival

Part of our Without Borders podcast unicorn series, in this episode we speak to Avinash Rugoobur, President & Chief Strategy Officer of electric mobility provider, Arrival. We discuss partnerships, portfolio diversification and communication challenges.

Following a recent €100 million investment from Hyundai Motor Group earlier in 2020, Arrival remains a very agile company. With only 1,200 employees, it is pioneering a new way of manufacturing transport, decentralising what is traditionally a deeply centralised process thanks to vertical integration of key technologies and the use of micro-factories.

How are Avinash and the team avoiding Silicon Valley-esque hype circles and what effect does the current pandemic have on the business? Listen to our latest episode to find out more.

The interview, as ever, was co-hosted with Russell Goldsmith of the csuite podcast.
