AaDya Expands Ann Arbor Security Startup Scene to Detroit

Another security startup has joined the growing ranks of cybersecurity companies in Southeast Michigan, emerging from the Duo exit. This one, AaDya, targets mid-size companies that need a general security service. Founder Raffaele Mautone says this was intentional, as many security startups have novel ideas but "only solve one problem." AaDya is located in Detroit, not nearby Ann Arbor, because Mautone says he grew up in Detroit and had "seen how the city has evolved the last 5 years. I've been seeing startups and founders reposition themselves in the market to overcome challenges." Mautone says he also likes the culture and the startup ecosystem, "which is small enough to help each other."

Last-Mile EVs Shift The Business Models of Mobility

Mobility startups have been changing lately, and not just in the products they're producing--from pedestrian safety apps to self-driving cars. Micromobility startup Arcimoto was featured at this year's TU-Automotive Software conference in Detroit, speaking on the subject of integrating a mobility startup into the industry. We caught up with founder Mark Frohnmayer after the conference to get his tips for startup founders who are doing the same, and to ask how the industry is shifting in other ways. How do you integrate a mobility startup into a complex traditional auto industry? What is shifting within the mobility space this year? Frohnmayer says that in the 13 years since founding Arcimoto, a last-mile delivery and first responder vehicle company that produces small 3-wheel EVs in Eugene, Oregon, he has learned a few things to share.
