The next episode of Indium Corporation’s free webcast series, EV InSIDER Live, will examine the sudden proliferation of electric vehicle startups chasing one of the largest business opportunities in the last century.

The free webcast will be held on Thursday, Nov. 10 at 11:30 a.m. EST.
From electric vehicle OEMs,such as Rivian, Lucid Motors, and Fisker, to battery startups, such as Solid Power, ONE, and QuantumScape, or EV charging companies, such as Volta, WiTricity, and EVgo, there will likely be more losers than winners in the race for market and mindshare.

In the webcast EV Survivor: Which of the EV Startups will Live or Die, Alexa St. John, transportation reporter for Business Insider who specializes in covering EV industry startups, will share her thoughts on the headwinds facing many of these startups and who some of the most likely survivors and next unicorn companies will be.

Co-hosted by Indium Corporation’s global head of e-Mobility and infrastructure, Brian O’Leary, along with Loren McDonald,will dive into key topics with St. John, including the following:

What are the key hurdles and challenges facing these startups in today’s challenging

economic and supply-chain constrained environment?

What are the profiles, traits, and signs of success that companies in the EV space have

that will most likely determine whether they die, survive, or thrive this decade?

Which EV startups among the current crop will survive? Who has the capital, teams,

backing, and supply-chain relationships to pull it off? Who is in trouble? And who are some of

the sleeper companies in the EV battery and charging space?
