“We believe in the future of urban mobility where there is no need for private car ownership”

Company history

2014

The idea to offer a service for electric scooter sharing is born in a park: A scooter is a great means of transportation every now and then in urban traffic, but just not often enough so that you would want to own one yourself. Through the participation at the Open Innovation Slam, a European competition, this project gains further momentum. The three founders win the competition and therefore get accepted to the Climate KIC Accelerator.

2015

To prevail over its competitors, things must go quickly: In January the first prototype is ready, in March a test period with 5 scooters is started and in June the seed round investment is secured. This enables a market entry with 150 scooters in Berlin. Under the name of eMio the red scooters quickly come to be known around town.

2016

The year starts with the participation at the accelerator program of Deutsche Bahn to explore cooperation potentials within the corporate group. In other respects, the team now faces its first complete season. The service is very well received, usage numbers are steadily rising. Now follows the first step of expansion. Together with the utility supplier Stadtwerke Stuttgart as a local partner the service stella-sharing is introduced in Stuttgart.

2017

To boost its own expansion efforts a series A funding round is closed in February. This enables the team of eddy to a significant increase in scooters in Berlin and market entry into further cities. Due to legal reasons, the brand name has to be changed. Starting from March, the scooters now go by the name of eddy.
