Open, scalable and hardware agnostic, Mojio is the cloud platform of choice for the deployment of secure connected car apps and services. Mojio’s platform delivers a smarter, safer and more convenient driving and vehicle ownership experience to subscribers of major network operators, including Bell Canada, Deutsche Telekom, Rogers Communications, T-Mobile and TELUS.

With real-world data gathered from more than 7 billion miles of driving, Mojio provides a big data analytics framework that uses machine learning to generate actionable insights and unlock new revenue streams for companies throughout the automotive value chain.

However, I wanted to find out more about the story behind Mojio's success. Kenny Hawk is a Detroit native who grew up with roots in the automotive industry. He started his career working on the manufacturing floor at General Motors, but soon found himself leaving Detroit for new opportunities overseas and in Silicon Valley.

Mojio is Kenny’s sixth outing as CEO, indulging his passion for using technology to solve real-world problems. His achievements include winning the GSMA Innovator of the Year Award; setting the world record for low power, smartphone GPS chipsets; and selling over $1 billion in mobile power accessories.

I caught up with Kenny as he begins to prepare for CES in Vegas. I learn more about their mission and also where you can find them at the world's biggest consumer electronics show.
