Our Business Synopsis


This is currently a two trillion dollar business (the auto industry) that is unquestionably going to go through a tectonic shift. There is a tremendous economic and social gain to be had in providing cities and regions with the platforms, business models, expertise and vision in creating the future of auto transportation.  
  • The past cannot build the future (the Innovators Dilemma)
  • Technology is rapidly evolving to deliver personalized hardware/software products and experiences, at a "network scale" for affordable costs. 
  • The consumer is evolving rapidly to expect these services and products. 
  • The very nature of the individually owned auto as transportation is changing. 
  • The mass production and growth sales of the auto legacy model, is creating ever increasing congestion and infrastructure costs for cities and regions. 
  • The traditional auto industry's growth model, and the needs of cities/regions and their citizens are at odds.
  • Organizational and business models are rapidly evolving and emerging, that when combined with evolving technologies and consumer trends and needs, allows for a much different framework for the auto industry, and its relationship to needs of consumers and city-regions. 
  • These new models should be predicated on providing "auto transportation solutions and experiences" rather than gross sales of individual units.
  • The necessary ecosystem exists to provide the new model for personalized transportation solutions and experiences, but it needs to "Gravitate" around a new platform model
  • Cities and regions can be at the forefront of developing the platforms and "gravitational pull".
  • Glia is to provide the "operating system", expertise, leadership and vision for the platforms and ecosystems.
