Goodyear invests in connected mobility technology

The Goodyear Tire and Rubber Co. has announced that its venture capital arm, Goodyear Ventures, has added Nova Labs, formerly Helium Inc., to its growing investment portfolio. Nova Labs is the pioneer of decentralized wireless communications and founder of the core technologies powering the Helium Network. The Helium Network provides public, long-range wireless coverage for a wide range of Internet of Things (IoT) devices, such as smart bikes and scooters, home delivery systems and more. Available in 163 countries worldwide, Helium Hotspots enable people to own and operate their own wireless network, building “The People’s Network” that connects IoT devices.

Goodyear Ventures recently participated in Nova Lab’s series D financing round. With connected mobility playing a key role in the future of transportation, this investment allows Goodyear to collaborate on efficient and accessible connectivity solutions.
