I am Reilly Brennan, co-founder and partner at Trucks, a venture capital fund for entrepreneurs building the future of transportation. We’ve backed companies like Gatik, Bear Flag Robotics, Roadster, JetZero, May Mobility, Universal Hydrogen, Skyryse and about 50 more.
My newsletter, FoT, is a weekly radar for what’s happening in transportation. My job board, MobilityJobs.com, is the No.1 transportation-focused hiring platform. If you are a startup you can use the job board for free with the code ‘Trucks’ when you post a job.
Prior to Trucks, I was Executive Director for Stanford’s automotive research program, Revs, and taught at Stanford in the School of Engineering and the d.school. Before that I was a member of the Le Mans-winning factory Corvette C5-R program. My personal land speed record is 168 mph, behind the wheel of a Chaparral 2E.
I have a disproportionate love for my home state of Michigan and am the co-founder of Tuebor, an honor pledge wherein individuals commit to invest in one State of Michigan-based startup per year. I have taken the Tuebor pledge to make a Michigan investment every year for the rest of my life.
