blinkee.city has grown organically and not raised any external funding in equity for any of our businesses.
This is the first time we offer equity in subsidiary company Blinkee Nordic AB.
The value of the company will be secured on the exclusive and fixed license agreement for 10 years and beyond, exclusive for Sweden and Finland, and possibly to expand to other countries.
Next year we plan to fundraise more e.g. from VC funds in Sweden.
Blinkee.city has a strong cooperation with several electric companies, for example E.ON from Hungary is one of them.
From this year we maintain a partnership with Kross Limited bikes in Europe to produce our own electric kickbikes. Kross Limited is one of the biggest producers of bikes in Europe, exporting bikes to over 45 countries around the world, like Germany, Switzerland, Spain, Denmark, Hungary, Sweden and other.
If you would like to open blinkee.city service in your country or city - please contact us!
We are open for a new joint venture collaboration.
Use of funds
We have already developed our software and hardware, so right now we are aiming to scale and launch as many vehicles as it is possible in Sweden:
Our plan in different funding scenarios:
200k EUR fundraising - 50 scooters and 100 electric kickbikes in Stockholm
300k EUR fundraising - 75 scooters and 200 electric kickbikes in Stockholm
400k EUR fundraising - 100 scooters and 300 electric kickbikes in Stockholm
500k EUR fundraising - 125 scooters and 400 electric kickbikes in Stockholm
Our biggest recognition is from our users - over 150 000 users in Poland, and almost 30 000 great and very active fans on Facebook.
We plan to approach few international contests regarding e-mobility and ecological transportation next year.
A few articles about us in Sweden:
- Blinkee operates with an underlying profitable business model. After 36 months operation the company's aim is to give dividend to its shareholders.
- A very possible outcome is that Blinkee Nordic AB will be acquired in a consolidation of the European market.
- IPO scenario: If Blinkee will participate as an active acquirer in a consolidation of the market an IPO in Stockholm or Germany is a likely scenario.
The market is moving rapidly, so very quick actions and adaptations are essential.
A few risks that we identified:
1) Big players entering kick-bikes market
2) Big takeovers in the market, consolidation
3) Rapidly changing market of the smart transportation, which could result in changing the assumptions in the business plan
4) Legislative and political changes
5) CO2 new emission rules
