I'm at a stealth startup doing product & BD. We have an awesome tool for autonomous development around LiDAR and Radar data. We know from friends at Waymo, Tesla and Uber that what we have is legit.
Any idea how to talk to the right people at Project Titan at Apple? The people whom we know personally that are 100% on that project can't talk about it and afraid to make intros
Being stealth really doesn’t help you guys if you are building a development tool. There’s no standard platform for “autonomous development” so how you interface with their systems is going to be important and a major challenge.
You mention friends at Waymo, Tesla and Uber and that your “awesome” tool is “legit” but are any of them customers? That doesn’t say anything about your tech or why it’s useful.
Apple may or may not have an interest in your technology. Couldn’t say either way. But, Apple isn’t the type of company you approach wrt what it might be working on. That will always be a dead end conversation. Instead focus on building your business and marketing the hell out of your tech. If it seems interesting and is useful for something Apple wants to do they will come find you.
