Lime and FKA are teaming up to kick off this Techweek with a blast! This is for angels, VCs and fund managers who want to learn more about innovation in the transport sector. Up to 50 investors will visit various companies in the Wynyard/Britomart vicinity to hear more. In between places the investors will e-scooter.
Each company stop will be approximately 30 minutes to give time for a presentation and subsequent Q&A.
You should be present for the whole duration of this event.
After finishing his MBA in Spain, Matt decided that rather than wrangling 4-legged bulls he'd wrangle 2-wheeled scooters. He did that first in Australia and then brought a big herd of scooters to these shores as launcher and GM for Lime NZ. He has fantastic stories about scaling!
Kirsten is doing for cars what Lime has done for scooters, all electric. She has started in Christchurch with an initial 70 car fleet. To really grow this new business model she reckons she needs to split from a much bigger and more conventional fleet management business.
Oscar has a passion for sharing all sorts of things, in particular, private cars. He has promptly turned that into a business that is helping car owners and drivers work together to reduce the number of cars on the road and save costs for everyone. Not easy though!
Timothy is a serial entrepreneur from the Bay of Plenty. He has driven numerous projects out of Locus Research. His focus is now firmly on growing the number UBCO bikes in farm and more recently urban environments. It started with farmers, now he is selling whole fleets to large corporates.
