OUR STORY

Our company was established on April 11th, 2016 composed of the five of us founders.
We were a bunch of bright-eyed thirty-year-olds.
In the summer of 2014, we were inspired by our passion for traveling and by our need to have a portable vehicle for our daily commuting. On a trip to Istanbul, the idea of Linky became reality and the first sketches were jotted down.
The following autumn, the main ideas for Linky – and the team – really came together.
We quickly moved to constructing a wooden pro-totype, with the aim to assess the size, driving er-gonomics, and portability.

In December 2014, there is a new development: Fabio enters the team and is responsible for the production of the board. Fabio, carried by a passion for electrical engineering, has brought an attention to detail that has made Linky unrivaled in the electric skateboard market.
Fabio and Paolo then set out to make the first working prototype of the skateboard.
In February 2015, Cristiano joined the project as a marketing manager. A graduate in economics and an expert in business promotion, Cristiano con-ceived our newborn brand identity.
“Uncle” Stefano was the first investor to believe in us and was our mentor until 2020. He brought ex-perience and professionalism to the management of the supplier team.

In May 2015 our project passed the first stage of the regional competition ECapital in Le Marche, Italy.
The very next month, Linky’s innovative folding system was patented.
Giovanni joined the team later in 2015 as the manager of firmware and software development.
The journey has not always been easy for Linky – a lot of hardship can occur when building a startup. Burning countless motors in order to come up with a reliable prototype and plenty more of the midnight oil staying up late working.
But as the saying goes…
you get out of life what you put into it!
A successful Indiegogo campaign and the support of professional investors allowed us to launch the product on the market,
turning our dream into reality.

We were lucky and passionate enough to

withstand all the difficulties and to arrive at

this point.

But this is not only due to us;

part of that success is also of our customers

that believed in what we are doing

and made this dream possible.
