Revolutionaries: Detroit Comes to Silicon Valley - An Evening with Bill Ford

About This Episode



History shows that the evolutionary road of a century-old company often leads directly through Silicon Valley. Ford Motor Company, founded in 1903, is now tapping directly into the Valley’s brand of innovation and design with the opening of a new research lab. What is the aim of Ford’s entry into this epicenter of creativity, and how does it fit with Ford’s strategic future?
