We were very happy to be invited to the 2nd China (Shenzhen) IEIC London final. This was a fast and furious afternoon of pitching by startups to a panel of judges for cash prizes and a trip out to Shenzhen to learn more about opportunities in the south of China.
We had a great afternoon, coming 3rd in the the competition and winning a place to the international final in Shenzhen in mid-April.
We’ve done our research and it’s pretty unlikely that we’ll be building the ebikes in China. However, a number of key companies in the ebike supply chain are Chinese and we see this as a great opportunity to meet more people out there and see what’s really going on on the ground.
We’ll keep you posted on our adventures in the Pearl River Delta!
