Heidi Hysell Becomes Advisor to Road Safety Coalition’s Innovation Ecosystem Initiative
Together for Safer Roads (TSR) partnered with Heidi Hysell, founder and CEO of Alpha Drive, to help companies and entrepreneurs not only adapt to – but thrive in – the evolving mobility landscape. In her role as Advisor to TSR’s Innovation Ecosystem Initiative, Hysell is helping TSR bring stakeholders together to foster cross-sector discussion that can accelerate mobility innovation while ensuring road safety.
Hysell brings more than 15 years of experience in technical innovation and 6 years of experience as an entrepreneur. Hysell has dedicated her efforts on building trust and safety within the field of AI, initially focusing on the future and autonomous mobility.
Hysell previously led technology and innovation teams within large corporations and early-stage companies. From CNN to Samsung, her experience has given her insights into a variety of industries.
Through the collaboration with Hysell, TSR will grow its entrepreneurial-based work, including:
- Advancing TSR’s Global Entrepreneur Program (GEP), which early-stage companies and TSR member companies work together to reimagine solutions that reduce crashes and fatalities on the world’s roads.
- Helping identify and understand the stakeholders who make up the Road Safety Innovation Ecosystem.
Hysell and TSR are currently in the process of outlining the motivations, goals, and priorities of the key stakeholder personas in the Road Safety Innovation Ecosystem – Primary Road Safety Beneficiaries and Road Safety Ecosystem Enablers – to ultimately discover ways in which we can help them achieve safer roads.
