Connection. It’s how innovation happens.
The Fulton Circle is dedicated to bringing together innovators and key stakeholders in small groups to establish the personal connections and engagement necessary to accelerate the digital transformation of transportation.
The Circle is limited to 25 members who meet for monthly dinners with key legislators, governors and key transportation leaders to discuss and strategize ways to advance opportunities and overcome challenges with advancing the dramatic improvement of the safe and efficient movement of people and goods.
This small group, committed to shaping the future of our transportation system, is named for Robert Fulton, the 19th century engineer and inventor widely credited with inventing the steam boat. To be clear, Fulton didn’t invent the steamboat; he perfected it. His real achievement was establishing the connections and relationships necessary to achieve what the steamship inventors and patent holders before him could not; get government to assist in unlocking the enormous potential of the steamship. His relationships changed the face of transportation forever.
Like Fulton, members of the Circle understand that innovation is not enough and is only part of the equation. They know that establishing personal connections and seriously engaging with the right people are critical to shaping the future of transportation.
