About this event

On June 2, 2021 from 4 PM to 5PM, join Cruise and six community leaders from San Francisco District 6, for a compelling and in-depth discussion about the challenges being faced by small business in the city right now, and how new technology being developed by Cruise will transform the landscape and offer those businesses new opportunities to better connect with their customers.


The California DMV has approved Cruise’s Driverless Testing Permit. After years of careful testing, thoughtful development, and robust validation, Cruise is now taking the natural next step and slowly beginning fully driverless testing with zero emission vehicles in San Francisco.

In this sixth in a series of citywide webinars, Moderator Vas Kiniris, the Director of Business Development at NEXTSF, will be joined by Kenny Montilla, Public Affairs Manager at Cruise, and the six District 6 leaders.
