KARV helped this start-up developer of software for self-driving cars establish its initial positive international positioning within the intensely competitive autonomous vehicle industry, and drive its rapid emergence as a recognized leader. We developed a compelling message platform and delivered it across a series of corporate announcements to generate considerable global media coverage; supported nuTonomy’s fundraising and the forging of industry partnerships; attracted prominent speaking invitations for the CEO and awards for the firm; and aided its recruitment efforts. KARV helped further improve nuTonomy’s reputation before its key stakeholders in the U.S., Europe and Asia through a thought leadership effort that garnered quotations from the CEO in outlets ranging from The Wall Street Journal, Vice, and USA Today to the BBC, Bloomberg News, and The Financial Times. We also provided critical crisis communications support, and designed and implemented the company’s first social media program. Within a year, influential technology publication The Information cited nuTonomy as “the most high-profile independent startup in the industry right now…that has gotten the most attention in the industry.”
