Another day another trip to Amsterdam. This time we met with the Owner of Swheels2Go, a company which we kept hearing about, but did not know a lot about. We asked a lot of questions about the company and found out that they are planning to create a scooter which is road legal in the Netherlands. They will do this by working closely with a factory in Shenzhen, China.
After seeing the sights of Amsterdam and a few beers we went to a FREE financial event with Samed from INNOVATE Today . This event was to help us get a better understanding of the financial side of the company. This event gave us a lot of useful information for our company and we will go to Haarlem to meet with Innovate Today again.
SCOOTit strikes again! Me, Max Schalow and Hoang IJsseldijk presented in front of multiple investors: Harmen van der Kooij, Michel Willems, Karin Hilton, Alwin Ruimschotel, Dennis Rot, Dennis Tan and Ivana Setiawan. Lots of gratitude for their advises and belief in our skills 🙏 Big thanks to ECE Students for the provided opportunity.
P.S. i admit i copied this from my linkedin post. sry was too lazy to type.

Through the connections of our favorite "Dad" (Pieter) we met up with Mike Kok from Allego to discuss marketing ideas and possible cooperation with Allego. Him and some other Allego workers loved the scooter and the idea. Mike gave us some great ideas and direction on what we need to work on. We are creating a proper marketing plan and dusting up the business plan right now.
Next we met with our engineer to see what he has been working on, followed up by a few beers "to bond a little".
Hoping to Launch scooters by the start of next month.
Your boys reached out to hundreds of e-scooter sharing companies for some sweet knowledge, but only one have replied - the real MVP - Maxim Romain, CEO of Dott.
We got ourselves together after camping in the forest, took our scootits and headed to Amsterdam. Meeting Maxim was a great experience, he seemed chill and helped us out in any way possible. I also took an interview with him for my YouTube channel - TNRI (please subscribe and like).
We can see opportunities of working with Dott in the future, whereas, out trip to Bird office ended up with no results :(
In the end of that day, we got picked up by our friends and ate some delicious Pakistani BBQ (yum!). What I've learned is to keep trying and not letting downfalls stop you.
