Aurora Innovation made its highly-anticipated debut on the NASDAQ this morning. It's following a string of local IPOs this year from Duolingo, Stronghold Digital Mining and Cognition Therapeutics. 

Aurora Innovation began trading early Thursday after merging with a blank-check company run by LinkedIn co-founder Reid Hoffman and Zynga founder Mark Pincus.

Aurora sent an announcement this afternoon:

"As of today, we’re thrilled to continue on our mission to deliver the benefits of self-driving technology safely, quickly and broadly as a publicly traded company on NASDAQ (AUR).

Aurora works at the intersection of rigorous engineering and applied machine learning to address one of the most challenging, important and interesting opportunities of our generation: transforming the way people and goods move.

Founded by three of the world's leaders in the self-driving vehicle industry, Aurora designs the software and hardware that will power the next revolution in transportation. It brings partners together to move more quickly than any one company can move alone.
