Just a few months after opening its new Poland office, Swedish crowdfunding platform FundedByMe announced the upcoming launch of its first Polish campaign, which is for the mobile app for scooters, Blinkee.city. FundedByMe reported that the Blinkee.city app has been up and running in eight Polish cities, along with Budapest, and now the app’s creators are looking to offer scooter rentals in Stockholm. Maciej Gajewski, CEO of FundedByMe Poland, stated:
“We believe that the Blinkee team is world class, their execution is brilliant. They are growing very fast, from 0 to 600 scooters over the first 1,5 year without external investments. And what is worth mentioning – they are already profitable at this stage. Being both disruptive and eco-friendly, we are really optimistic about FundedByMe Poland’s first campaign aiming for Blinkee’s expansion into the Nordic countries, says Maciej Gajewski, CEO at FundedByMe Poland.”
Through the Blinkee.city app users may find the closest scooter, book it and then they have 15 minutes to get to it. The app unlocks the vehicle and in the scooter, users will find a helmet. After the user has reached their final destination, they simply park the scooter and deactivate it in the app. They only pay for the minutes they have used it.
FundedByMe also reported it is hoping that other companies in Poland will recognize the advantage of equity crowdfunding and that Blinkee.city will become the first of many successful campaigns in the country. Daniel Daboczy, CEO and Co-Founder of FundedByMe, then added:
“Poland has a very exciting market and the team running the Polish office are enormously driven and well connected. We are extra excited to see that the first case launched is for electric vehicles as this is the future and we at FundedByMe are especially good at crowdfunding electric vehicle companies. If the first case is this cool, imagine the rest of the cases to be launched. Cool cases and a huge market of investors create a very good combination.”
