Read on for an exciting sponsorship announcement, an overview of our Ambassador program, updates from our Engineering team, an upcoming MeetUp + other events, and much more!

MOBI Sponsorship

Constellation Labs is excited to announce our sponsorship of the renowned mobility ecosystem consortia, MOBI.

“Partnering with the MOBI consortia is key to our core vision of accelerating possibility in the mobility space. Constellation is building a protocol with the ability to usher in enterprise adoption through real-world use cases.  We are excited about the myriad of potential applications and to contribute to this world-class organization.”
