TechStars – Matt Levin of Donut Media, Cory James Hohs of HAAS Alert


Our founder, Michael Melfi, had the great opportunity recently to visit the TechStars facility in downtown Detroit. While there, he spoke with several innovative individuals from the next generation of mobility.  In this segment hear from Matt Levin and Cory James Hohs.

The automotive lifestyle is something to get excited about, and that’s why Matt Levin, Co-Founder and CEO of Donut Media, started his company. Levin has not only created success with the automotive videos he puts out, but also by surrounding himself with great coworkers and clients. Not everything is always smooth sailing (or should we say driving), Levin says that challenges are part of the job but he is always thinking creatively and out-of-the-box to overcome them.

The first globally connected sensor technology for early detection of emergency vehicles is here and founded Cory James Hohs of HAAS Alert. This preemptive alert will get distracted drivers to pay attention to their surroundings, which is exactly the reason Hohs got into this business. Overcoming traffic distractions is similar to overcoming business challenges—they usually come out of nowhere when you’re least prepared for it, and like his company, Hohs likes to try to stay ahead of the game and be part of the solutions to overcome those challenges.
