In this episode, host Tom Loarie talks with guest mentor Ulrich Schmid-Maybach, whose great grandfather, Wilhelm Maybach, designed the first high-speed internal combustion engine in 1883 and the first Mercedes car in 1901. Today the Mercedes Maybach is known to the most elite of car enthusiasts worldwide; the ultra-luxury car starts at $168,600. But this episode is not about luxury. It’s about super-innovation, building bridges from the past to the future, and mentoring others. Ulrich founded the Maybach Foundation in 2006 with the dual mission of honoring the history of ingenious designers and inventors Wilhelm and Karl Maybach and mentoring a new generation of innovators to follow their own inspirations. The Foundation’s motto is “Your best future is helping someone else find theirs.” Find show notes and episode posted here after first airing on Saturday.
