Trillium is proud to announce our selection as finalists in the Global Automotive and Mobility Innovation Challenge for 2018. The team worked hard throughout the length of the competition, resulting in a victory at the semifinals in Troy, Michigan last Friday, February 23rd. The GAMIC community was very receptive of Trillium’s innovative automotive cybersecurity and data monetization solutions, along with the potential seen in the Cyber Security as a Service platform. We would like to extend our thanks to everyone that helped this effort be realized, and look forward to seeing our friends and partners in Detroit for the finals.
MUNICH, Feb 21, 2018 – (ACN Newswire) – Trillium Secure, Inc., known for its disruptive automotive IoT cybersecurity technology and highly innovative ‘SecureIoT’ Cyber Security as a Service (C-SaaS) platform, has been selected to present at the renowned Munich Summit (MUST) on February 21, 2018. MUST is an exclusive, invitation-only, networking event connecting cutting-edge startup companies with industry leaders and investors to create new business realities.
Trillium will showcase technology that enables real-time global protection of the millions of commercial, public and private vehicles that will be serviced by the SecureIoT C-SaaS platform. Trillium’s solution dynamically creates and deploys security patches and countermeasures in near real-time as threats unfold.
“Trillium was nominated for its innovative business model and disruptive technology – it’s just the type of startup company for which the MUST summit was designed,”said David Hajizadeh, Entrepreneur in Residence, Volkswagen DataLab.
“We are honored by the opportunity to present at such a prestigious event. We are continuously innovating our security platform, which incorporates in-vehicle machine learning agents and deep learning technologies in the cloud. Our development work over the past year is enabling Trillium to deliver a solution that solves the most critical problems facing automakers and insurance providers in the era of connected and autonomously driven vehicles,” said David Uze, Trillium CEO.
“Our solution provides a scalable comprehensive security platform as well as a business model that dramatically reduces vehicle manufacturer liability and transforms automotive safety from a considerable cost for manufacturers into a compelling profit center,” said Uze.
Adrian Sossna, Trillium’s Strategic Business Development Manager, will share Trillium’s SecureIoT technology and the C-SaaS business model at The MUST event. Equally as important, Sossna will hold one-on-one meetings the following day, which has been set aside for the specific purpose of helping technology innovators identify partners for penetrating the European market.
“It will be a Darwinian version of musical chairs, with some players not having a partner with which to sit once the music stops. We need to identify our go-to-market partners for Europe as quickly as possible to complete our global footprint before launching our services this summer in Japan,” said Sossna.
The SecureIoT solution is a purely software-based technology comprised of four modules: SecureCAR, SecureIXS, SecureOTA, and SecureSKYE.

If ever you wanted an illustration of why a startup might want to attend an event like Mobility.Pioneers, look no further than automotive cyber security company Trillium Secure. Having travelled all the way from Japan to Germany for the first edition of Mobility.Pioneers last year, they impressed the jury enough to enjoy the glory and publicity that came with victory in the autonomous track, one of three broad categories in which startups competed.
That in itself was a great return for a company making its first foray to a European event. But there was more to cheer than that. Trillium also got talking to automotive giant Volkswagen at the event, a connection which directly led to an ongoing collaboration with the corporate. And the impression they made last year also earned them an invitation to return, this time to take part in a panel discussion that reflects their growing status in the industry. Trillium’s CEO David Uze will be taking part in the What Could Future OEM Business Models Look Like? discussion on stage.
“We were humbled that the jury recognized the importance of securing vehicles and how that is fundamental to enabling autonomous drive,” recalls their Strategic Business Development Manager Adrian Sossna, who will also be present in Munich once again. “Without cyber security, there’s no autonomous drive.
“On the opening night, at the ice-breaker event, I happened to sit at the same table as Dr Zach Izham. He’s Project Manager of the Volkswagen Data:Lab in Munich. We kept in contact and he was very interested in what we were doing. Then in October last year we were selected for the VW Data:Lab program, and are now working continuously with them. So that contact was made at Mobility.Pioneers. On the day itself we had a demo set up and we got a lot of attention at our little booth. We got a lot of leads and discussions from that too.”
Fond as those recollections are, Trillium is looking forwards rather than backwards as the company continues to grow fast. And they see great value in taking part in the panel discussion next week.
“What these panels give you is the opportunity to begin a conversation about things that are industry-wide problems, with the right parties,” says Sossna. “Cyber security solutions won’t come from a startup. Nor from an OEM. And nor from a Tier 1. They’ll come from a group of companies coming together to solve different parts of a major problem. Panels enable us to start that conversation.
“One of the key reasons we’re coming back is to meet the right people from the right mobility companies. People who have an interest in our type of disruptive business model and want to do this together with a startup like ours. Having deployed and built our value system for Japan, we’re looking to have the right Go To Market partners for Europe this year.”
So which are the startups jostling for a chance to emulate Trillium’s success when the second edition of Mobility.Pioneers rolls around next week? Having narrowed down the invitation list to 100 startups, we can now also name the 20 who we’ve selected to pitch on stage – and the experts who’ll judge them. The program has been expanded from last year, and now includes four pitching tracks.
The details for each track are as follows:
SHARED USE TRACK
Startups: Caroo Mobility, MOVTZ, 2hire, Getaway, Utopian Future Technologies
Judges: Julius Rüßmann (Earlybird Venture Capital), Tian Tian Feng (Cherry Ventures) and Jens-Philipp Klein (Atlantic Labs).
Startups: CIRRANTiC, AVILOO, EcoG, Lennahc, ChargeX
Judges: Olaf Joeressen (High-Tech Gründerfonds), Julien Etienne (Aster Capital)
Startups: TheWhollySee, Sensible 4, Humanising Autonomy, emotion3D, embotech AG
Judges: Ulrich Eisele (Fluxunit), Boris Shulkin (Magna International), Phillip Stangl (Pioneers Ventures)
Startups: Capricode, WeNow, High Mobility, German Autolabs, Susi & James
Judges: Christian Lindener (Wayra), Gitte Bedford (Robert Bosch Venture Capital), Marie-Helene Ametsreiter (Speedinvest)
The winning startup from each track will then get the chance to pitch on the Muffatwerk’s biggest stage at the end of the day, as they shoot for a chance to win overall. Picking the best of the quartet will doubtless be a tough job, and one we’ve entrusted to Tobias Jahn of BMW i Ventures, David Murray-Hundley of Tech London Advocates Automotive and our own Pioneers Ventures expert Stangl.
Perhaps the final word on pitching should go to Sossna, who was happy to share some advice on what helped get Trillium the thumbs-up from the judges a year ago.
“Focus on the problem that you’re solving, but be mindful of the applicability and the feasibility of what you’re doing,” he suggests. “Tie things into reality by presenting a clear business case for what you’re doing and how you’re doing it. If you have excellent tech and you don’t have the business model that goes with it, then you won’t be able to win. And if you have an excellent business model, but don’t have the tech for it, you won’t be able to win either. You have to marry the business with the technology.”
