Founder and CEO, VeloMetro Mobility Inc.
Increasing congestion, declining interest in vehicle ownership, a move towards a sharing economy, fewer licensed drivers per capita – and winters that can make cycling an uncomfortable exercise. VeloMetro’s solution is car-sharing without the car. Kody and his team are focused on deploying colourful swarms of internet-connected and sharable “Veemos” in major urban centers around the world – starting at UBC. Legally considered electric bikes (no licence required!), Veemos offer the stability of tricycles, surrounded by a strong, eco-friendly body that provides shelter and makes carrying personal cargo easy. Making them even cleaner to operate, solar panels on the roof extend range by up to 20 km per day.
