It has been great to spend some time in Berlin recently and see first hand the success of micro-mobility innovators like JUMP, Lime, Voi, TIER and others who are furiously pedaling and pushing their offers of last-mile transportation to the mass market.
The Berlin-based e-scooter innovator, TIER Mobility, just this week announced a US$60 million Series B funding round designed to further accelerate European expansion and tech innovation. Investor (and consumer) appetite is showing little signs of slowing down; this is Wacky Races on two wheels with some of the fastest growing companies in consumer tech history battling it out to take control of our cities' pavements!
Last week's Micromobility Europe conference was well-timed to address some of the significant challenges ahead for the swarm of tech companies operating across the micro-mobility landscape. Julia Steiner's awesome animation of key issues raised in an Executive Roundtable discussion between scooter top brass provides a great synopsis of the challenges in the road ahead.
It promises to be one heck of a ride to see which business models and companies will keep moving forward and also where the wheels will fall off! What we do know is that the best companies need the best people on board - and that's where Hyperion enter the race!
