Could this be the future of cars? Come meet Hugo Spowers from River Simple and decide for yourself if we have a truly revolutionary business model on our hands. Here's how it's different: 1) The hydrogen-powered technology 2. A lease vs. buy model. 3) The company structure is a negotiated power-sharing system based around four key stakeholders groups: investors, workers, the community and the environment. Each group signs up to the company's values and gets a seat on the board 4) The firm's intellectual property will be freely available to all under an open source license. This means that anyone can re-use and build upon the technology as long as they license their new works back to the wider world on the same open terms. 5) They're are aiming to create a network of small, local factories close to demand and local markets - what they call a "distributed, human scale manufacturing' system. The session's focused on a short presentation from Hugo, after which 40 minutes in which you can ask as many questions as you like. It's the Reboot Britain Car, people!
