Marco Marinucci meets Dennis Clark, the Managing Director of Honda Innovations, in this last episode of Mind the Chat. The evolution of Honda’s presence in Silicon Valley should be looked at as exemplary for corporations that are considering expanding their footprint in the Bay Area: started as Honda Research Institute, then added a CVC unit and R&D team in 2011, and finally morphed in 2017 into Honda Innovations, a separate ~50 people company running 2 major programs.
