Ross Douglas is the Founder & CEO of Autonomy Paris & the Urban Mobility Week
Ross started his career as a wildlife documentary filmmaker before launching an event company in Johannesburg, South Africa, in 2005.
In 2012, Ross spent time in Lagos, Delhi, Copenhagen and Berlin, where he could not help noticing the stark difference between cities with toxic traffic congestion (Lagos and Delhi) and those with clean, efficient mobility facilitated mainly by bicycles (Copenhagen and Berlin). After researching the subject, he realised there was a need for a new type of trade show to gather businesses and cities dedicated to sustainable mobility.
This was the genesis of Autonomy Paris – an event that brings innovators, policymakers, press and the public together in Paris once a year to experience and create new mobility solutions. Ross lives in Paris.
