To see what NGMC is all about, watch this video of one our fall events at California College of the Arts in San Francisco, CA:

“The value of doing a challenge like this is that it brings together a diversity of disciplines and institutions and individuals.” 

We are back with the second half of the Next Generation Mobility Challenge (NGMC), a design competition from Toyota, the Toyota Mobility Foundation and Net Impact to inspire millennials to develop solutions to meet critical mobility needs related to social equity and inclusion.  The Challenge is a day-long activity broken down into a series of design sprint activities led by interdisciplinary experts selected by Toyota.  The events are open to design, engineering and business students at both the Undergraduate and Graduate level, and accepted students will be sorted into interdisciplinary teams.

One team from each event will be chosen as a winner and given time to build out their idea with additional feedback from experts at Toyota. This past fall, 7 NGMC events were held around the country with 61 teams participating and dozens of potential solutions presented. 

The 15 winning teams will compete for a paid summer internship at Toyota.

This winter, we will be hosting events throughout the country - from Boulder, CO to New York City and beyond! Think you have what it takes? Check out the list of Next Generation Mobility Challenge events and apply for an event near you. 

Read about and get inspired by one of last year’s winners, Esther Kim, and her internship experience with Toyota Partner Robotics.
