UX / UI Designer
InMotion Ventures invests in the future of transport and mobility. Powered by Jaguar Land Rover (JLR), we work with start-ups and build products that change the way we move.
Our vision is to provide digitally enabled mobility services, employing innovative business models and technologies, which enable customers to access flexible solutions on-demand and in real time.
To achieve this, we invest globally at all stages from pre-Seed to Series B, alongside creating our own proprietary services utilising the Jaguar Land Rover product portfolio of vehicles to engage new and existing customers in new ways, supported by the wider JLR business.
Studio 107 creates and incubates our new proprietary services, taking an idea from inception, testing it in-market and then scaling. Every service needs to have a differentiated and aspirational role in the mobility ecosystem, starting in the UK and then expanding globally. The core Studio 107 team provides the oversight, expertise and experience throughout this process, steadily handing over to the founding team of each product as they grow and scale. Current examples include Liquid and Carpe – details can be found on our website.
